A USGA Handicap is the true measure of your game compared to another golfer. The USGA Calculation with take into account how difficult a golf course is. Also, golf courses have several tees to play from which are all different yardages. The longer the distance, the more difficult the course is. USHandicap.com uses the USGA course rating system that measures the difficulty and distance to give you a compliant index for the true measure of your game.
If your holiday shopping list includes a golfer, you are lucky because it gives you a big head start - you know you can get them something golf related.
But after that it gets tricky, since most golfers are very particular about their clubs and you can't just buy them a new wedge or putter as a surprise. And well, a dozen balls just don't say "I care enough to think about you." In fact, unless you ruin the surprise and ask and are told to buy seething very specific, I would avoid giving any clubs as gifts - they are as likely to hurt as help, maybe more so, regardless of quality, price or brand.
A USGA Handicap Index is something that a golfer uses every time they play. Through USHandicap.com, they post their scores and track their stats to improve their game.

"I was invited to the member-guest tournament at my friend's country club and I didn't realize an official USGA handicap index was required for all participants. Thanks for being a last minute life saver."
-D. Barret, Orlando, FL
"I used to maintain my handicap at a course I rarely play. I didn't realize how much they were over-charging me."
-S. Jackson, Palo Alto, CA
"Thank you for finally syncing your stat tracking with my Golf Canada membership. Your scoring reports have really helped me see the parts of my game I need to improve most."
-G. Edmonton, Vancouver, BC, Canada
"I was using another site to calculate my handicap but was turned away from a tournament because it wasn't actually USGA official. It's nice that all of your clubs link directly to the USGA's website for verification. You should do a better job at educating golfers as to what makes a handicap official or not."
