World Handicap System: Educate Yourself Today
With golf courses starting to close their doors for the season due to the onset of winter, now is the perfect time to educate yourself on the changes that are fast approaching in 2020 with the unveiling of the World Handicap System. New for 2020, the World Handicap System (WHS) will bring together the six handicapping systems used around the world into a single unified system. WHS 2020 will enable golfers of different abilities to play and compete on a fair and equitable basis, no matter how or where they play.
Our Director of Member Services, AJ Simokaitis, has put together some handy articles explaining what changes are in store next year, including the rationale behind some of these major changes. We encourage our players to read up on these changes in anticipation of the switch to WHS on January 1, 2020.
