World Handicap System - Course and Playing Handicap

​​




What is Course Handicap?

Before any player starts their round they must convert their Handicap Index into a Course Handicap. The Course Handicap will determine the number of strokes a player will receive for any set of tees on a course.

An easy way for a player to remember the WHS, is to think HCP!

                                                  


       

 




How to work out a Course Handicap?



England Golf will provide Course & Slope Rating tables to all golf clubs (see example below).  Tables should be positioned in conspicuous locations around the club to make it simple for golfers to find prior to beginning their round.

Golfers simply have to choose the tees they are playing off that day and cross reference their Handicap Index on the Course & Slope Rating table to ascertain their Course Handicap. It really is as simple as that and they’re then ready to get out on the course and play!






What is Playing Handicap?


Playing Handicap is a stroke allowance that is implemented in order to maintain the integrity of the WHS when used in competition. It allows golfers to compete on a level playing field, regardless of their Handicap Index. The Course Handicap converts to a Playing Handicap for competition purposes and changes depending on the format of play.
