A little about GOLF Link (from the Golf Australia website)

GOLF Link is Golf Australia’s national computerised golf handicapping system that started officially in January 1999. Members use a plastic “swipe” card to access handicaps at golf clubs around Australia. The swipe card is used to confirm and update handicaps, verify club memberships and enter competitions. The centralised system is overseen by Golf Australia and replaced the existing club-based handicap systems. All golfers are issued with a GOLF Link handicap card which is used by club systems to identify the golfer to the national handicapping system.

The major benefits of implementing GOLF Link are:

  • Uniform method of identification.
  • Automatic return of visitors’ scores.
  • Consistent application of handicapping rules.
  • Verification of each visitor’s membership and handicap.
  • Special offers for golfers.
