Best/easiest way to keep a handicap?
After about a decade break from the game other than the occasional once a year round I am getting back into the game. I escaped the golf **** of DC back to central Florida and playing 1-2 times a week. I am consistently breaking 80 but would like to get back down to 70-75 rounds and start playing in Florida state amateur tournaments just for fun. My last competitive rounds were in high school so I never had or needed an official handicap. All that to say what is the easiest and best way to keep an official handicap? I went on the Florida State Golf Association website but it seems like you need to belong to a club to use the online program?
Any tips and tricks? Trying to do it by joining as few associations or programs as possible. Thanks!
