New World Handicap System

World Handicap System, which takes effect in 2020, aims to bring the game of golf under a single set of handicapping rules that gives golfers an increased opportunity to have fun and compete equitably across all skill levels and ages on courses all around the globe.  Handicaps will establish more quickly so new players can enjoy competing equitably with others starting right away and continuing all season long.  The Technology behind the new system lets golfers simply play and enjoy their round the same as always and effortlessly submit scores immediately after their rounds to obtain real-time updates. 

The new system continues to utilize course ratings and slope ratings but incorporates these changes.

Established golfers will find their handicap is lower since the strokes are meant to only bring your score down close to par (72 on our course) rather than all the way down to a course rating of 68 or 66.  The great news is this will eliminate many of the complications that arise in competitions involving men and women playing off various tees.  Better still, the system looks after most of these new changes.  The new ESC may take some getting used to (Use hole by hole entry if you had a blow up hole and are unsure.) but as long as you play steady golf - just continue to enter your scores immediately or shortly after each round.
