World Handicap System

The World Handicap System is launching on Monday, 2nd November, 2020. It is designed to welcome more players, to make golf easier to understand and to give all golfers a handicap (the new name will be handicap index) which is portable all around the globe.

It will replace the six different systems currently used by over 15 million golfers in more than 80 countries.

It has been developed by The R&A and The United States Golf Association (USGA), supported by the world’s handicapping authorities, including CONGU, which represents the four home countries of Great Britain and Ireland.
