If you have a question about your handicap, that can't be answered by your Club Handicap Committee please feel free to submit an enquiry below: 

R&A World Handicap Survey.

Following the recent press statement confirming the development of a World Handicap System (WHS), the R&A and USGA are to embark upon some market research and advocacy work around the world to gather insights and feedback directly from golfers and other Club stakeholders on the key principles of the WHS, as well as some of the detailed proposals.

The research will be twofold:

1. Quantitative research – taking the form of an online survey in many countries around the world

2. Qualitative research – taking the form of focus groups in 6 key markets around the world.

England Golf will be hosting one of these Focus Groups and you will be asked during the survey if you would be willing to take part, if this is of interest please sign up and particpants will be selected at random by the R&A. 

This is a great oppertunity for all golfers, irrespective of ability or handicap experiance to have a say in the WHS. 

To take part, please follow the link below.
