WHS and Annual Handicap Reviews

Dear Members,

I just wanted to provide a quick update wrt the Introduction of the new World Handicap System and Annual handicap reviews.

World Handicap System

According to the timetable for the WHS, this week golfers are due to receive details on how to access to the England Golf WHS platform to (a) view their predicted WHS Handicap Index ahead of the launch (2nd November) and (b) to view the functionality the system provides.

From last week, your Handicap Committee has had access to the WHS platform. We have identified some discrepancies between existing score information from the CDH system and the WHS platform. This has been reported back to England Golf, who are currently investigating the issue.  As we receive more information, we will keep you informed.

Annual Handicap Reviews

The annual handicap reviews generally take place in late October/early November, once the Finals day and the Summer season has concluded.  This year, following the advice of England Golf, the Annual review for all members will take place after the WHS launch. It is planned to be completed by the end of November.

Best regards,

Shaun Carter
Chair of Handicap
