Return to news

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 their club members to ensure that everyone is ready for the new way in which handicaps will be calculated and used by golfers day to day.

Wales Golf completed a run of webinars back in the spring looking at the background and headline changes for Golf Clubs with a particular focus 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 this time. 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 it will mean for them 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 we move through the year.
