INTERNATIONAL BLIND GOLF ASSOCIATION HANDICAP SYSTEM

REVISED: DECEMBER 2019 (WITH EFFECT FROM 1 JANUARY 2020)

The International Blind Golf Association (IBGA) has devised this System to ensure that for international handicap competitions the calculation of handicaps is made in the same way in each member country.

 

Until the introduction of this System there were many different methods of determining handicaps which led to inconsistency of approach and allegations of unfairness. By operating this System the IBGA believes that all competitors in IBGA sanctioned events will have a chance of winning.

 

A sanctioned event is an event played in accordance with the Rules of Golf (as modified for blind golfers) set out by the R&A/USGA which has been pre-approved by the IBGA Board or, for its members by a Member Association, including all IBGA sponsored events. Scores in sanctioned events are eligible to count as Qualifying Rounds.  Read more details about the IBGA Handicap system here.
