As we move towards the GB&I launch of the World Handicap System (WHS) in November, Wales Golf has created a dedicated home page that will host news, videos, information and resource linked directly to the new handicapping system. Clubs are encouraged to use the content to help educate club members on the changes to how golfers handicaps will be calculated and used day to day.
Wales Golf completed a run of webinars back in the spring looking at the background and headline changes for Golf Clubs. The focus of these webinars was on the clubs handicap committee who will remain an integral part of the administration of a players handicap. The new resources including information booklets, posters and presentations are more focused towards the player and what the changes mean to them. This is the next step in the educational process and will help clubs bring the entire membership up to speed with the changes and what they will need to do when they step onto the course in November and beyond.
A lot of hard work continues in the background as we work towards launch and more content and information will be added to the pages as it becomes available.
