Why a World Handicap System?
What is the World Handicap System (WHS)?
The World Handicap System (WHS) aims to bring six different handicap systems together into a single set of Rules for Handicapping, enabling golfers of different abilities to play and compete on a fair and equal basis, no matter how or where they play.
The new World Handicap System has been designed to make golf more modern, fun and inclusive. The R&A and the USGA have created nine videos that capture this and break down each key change in a simple to understand manner.
Please find links to all the videos below.
As and when we are in a position to hold our communication sessions in the club room, members of the Handicap & Competitions Committee will be available to talk members through the coming changes. In the meantime, any questions about the new system can be sent to email@example.com.
