Golf Card International is proud to announce the new Handicap System is finally in place. When you login to your account, you will notice some changes. You can still access your old handicap card, but moving forward you will have to input your scores into our new system. It is much easier to use and all courses have been loaded with their slope/rating/par. You only have to select the course (with auto-fill as you type), then enter the date, tee played and score.
We are also proud to announce that if you have a twosome membership, both players now have the ability to create a handicap. If a course is not in our system, simply click the "Course not listed?" link and let us know the course name, city and state and we will input their data within 24 hours.

Esteban Toledo celebrated Cinco de Mayo by becoming the first Mexican winner in Champions Tour history, beating Mike Goodes with a par on the third hole of a playoff Sunday in the Insperity Championship.
The 50-year-old Toledo made his ninth start on the Champions Tour and eagled the opening hole to finish with a 5-under 67 to match Goodes and Gene Sauers at 6-under 210 at The Woodlands Country Club.
"It's a special day for me," Toledo said. "It's a holiday and it's just winning on that day is the most incredible thing I've ever done, because winning on the Champions Tour, it's hard. I have dreams and goals in my life that I was going to win on the Champions Tour, and I think I'm going to keep winning. I believe in myself that I can go up there and win again and again and again."
Vernon asks: My course just installed a GPS system on the carts. Can I still enter my scores into the USGA handicap system?
Rule: The USGA has ruled that scores shot using a GPS system are permissible to post for handicapping purposes. However, under the Rules of Golf, the use of the GPS system in a competitive event would be prohibited.
How can you find the sweet spot on a more consistent basis?
One simple way to do this is to shorten your driver's length to 43-44 inches. On the PGA Tour the average tour player's driver length is 44.5 inches while drivers sold in retail stores are 45.5 inches. The longer the driver, the harder it is to square the face at impact and find the sweet spot on a more consistent basis. Don't worry about the 2.5 yards lost from shortening the length of your driver, it is much better to lose 2.5 yards than 25-30 yards from inconsistency of contact.
