World Handicap System




A brand-new set of Rules for Handicapping was introduced globally in 2020, with the World Handicap System (WHS) bringing together six different handicap systems into a single set of Rules for Handicapping. The WHS enables golfers of different abilities to play and compete on a fair and equal basis, no matter how or where they play. In January 2024, the WHS experienced its first revisions. Review the resources below to learn more about the World Handicap System.
