What is the New World Handicap System (WHS) all about?
Many golfers are still getting used to all the changes to the rules of golf that took effect in January 2019, and now there’s another change—this one to the handicap system.

Before you get too stressed, we're going to review what you need to know over the next few months - getting ready for our golf season.

The World Handicap System (WHS) brings 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. In addition, a consistent global course rating system has been implemented to allow a player’s handicap index to be portable from course to course and country to country.
