Rules of Handicapping under golf’s World Handicap System | Webinar Series
Golf Canada is the Authorized National body that is responsible for implementing and administering the Rules of Handicapping in Canada in co-operation with the provincial golf associations.
The purpose of the World Handicap System (WHS) is to make the game of golf more enjoyable for golfers by providing a consistent means of measuring one’s performance and progress and to enable golfers of differing abilities to compete or play a casual round, with anyone else on a fair and equal basis.
With the return to golf, it is important that our golfers understand the WHS changes. To help with that, we have created an online presentation that highlights the major changes to the Rules of Handicapping. By comparing the Rules of Handicapping to the previous system, and providing explanations as to the reasons for the change, our golfers will have a better understanding and be able to feel confident as they continue to post scores.
