Handicapping

World Handicap System 2020 Information

The new World Handicap System will be implemented beginning in 2020. It follows an extensive review of systems administered by six existing handicapping authorities: Golf Australia, the Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU) in Great Britain and Ireland, the European Golf Association (EGA), the South African Golf Association (SAGA), the Argentine Golf Association (AAG) and the USGA.

The handicap calculation will continue to reflect a golfer's "potential" ability to play the game. There will be five major changes to the new World Handicap System. Click on the button below for detailed information regarding WHS 2020.
