What is the World Handicap System?
FROM 2nd NOVEMBER YOUR CLUB HANDICAP WILL BE REPLACED BY the WORLD HANDICAPPING SYTEM
The new World Handicap System (WHS) is designed to be more inclusive, accessible and to make golf easier to understand for all.
The WHS incorporates the Rules of Handicapping and the Course Rating System, (a consistent method to calculate a golf courses difficulty), to successfully determine a golfer’s Handicap Index.
The system, which comes into effect on 2 November 2020 will replace the six different systems currently used by over 15 million golfers, in more than 80 countries, to unify all golfers across the world.
We strongly advise all members to look at the full guidance on how it works and how it will effect you from ENGLAND GOLF by CLICKING HERE
