World Handicap System

The World Handicap System is launching in November 2020. It is designed to welcome more players, to 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.

To make the game more enjoyable, the new system will include:

Course rating and slope rating
Minimum number of scores to obtain a handicap
Competitive and recreational scores to count for handicap
Handicaps will be calculated from an average of recent scores
Maximum handicap of 54
Abnormal course and weather conditions adjustments

Closed: Following the announcement from the Prime Minister tonight, regrettably it now would appear that there is no option other than to close the course as from the 24 March 2020 while definitive advice is obtained about the implications of what was said.
