The World Handicap System (WHS) debuted in 2020, with the goal of allowing golfers to play on an equitable and fair basis around the globe. Currently, there are 6 handicap systems used across the globe, and course ratings are not done in several countries.  The WHS requires that all courses be rated and handicap index calculated in a consistent manner across the globe.  US golfers who have been using GHIN will not be significantly impacted, but there are several new concepts & terms for all golfers to learn! 

Here is the latest information on the Handicap System for 2024! Exciting new ability to record 9 hole scores and executive golf course scores
