How do golf handicaps work?

If you are an amateur a golf handicap is a measure of a player’s ability to play golf. Therefore a golf handicap is calculated by the average number of strokes above par a player is likely to score, for any given round.

At the end of a round of golf, each player subtracts their individual golf handicap from their score, resulting in a net score. This means that this system allows golfers of different abilities to compete against each other.
