Helping you understand the new World Handicap System
The World Handicap System is designed to welcome more players, make golf easier to understand and to give all golfers a handicap which is portable all around the globe.
It will replace the six different systems currently used by over 15 million golfers in more than 80 countries.
It has been developed by The R&A and The United States Golf Association (USGA), supported by the world’s handicapping authorities, including CONGU, which represents the four home countries of Great Britain and Ireland.
