How do you get a Golf Handicap?

Quoting the "USGA Handicap System", Part II, Section 3, The Player: "3-1. Obtaining a USGA Handicap Index In order to obtain a USGA Handicap Index, golfers must join a golf club and post their adjusted gross scores. These scores are subject to peer review. After at least five scores have been posted, the club will issue a Handicap Index to the golfer in accordance with the USGA Handicap System." Join the USGA (a great value) and you get the full set of rules of golf and can easily obtain the above mentioned book.

You can go to a local public club and they will track it for you. 3. You can do a rough calculation at home using excel - however, it doesn't account for all the exceptions that must be taken into account (e.g. playing in a tournament, 9-hole course) and becomes a pain as you have to recalculate every time you play.
