Handicap

The World Handicap System (WHS) unifies the six different handicap systems being used around the world into a single system that enables golfers of different ability to play and compete on a fair and equitable basis, in any format, on any course, anywhere around the world.

Having a handicap index allows golfers to:

  • Participate in more events (those that require a handicap index).
  • Have a measurable means of tracking improvement.
  • Allow score adjustments to even the playing field when playing with golfers of different skill levels.

World Handicap System Is Live. The initiative to unify the six different handicap systems in use around the world into a single World Handicap System began on  Jan 1, 2020.
