Best Answer

Stroke index is where the holes on a Golf course are ranked in order of difficulty. 1 being the hardest and 18 being the easiest. One 9 will have all the even stroke indexes and the other will have all the odd stroke indexes, this ensures the shots are distributed equally.

If your handicap is 9, you get a shot on all the holes ranked 1-9 in the stroke index.
