WHS Initial Handicap Index Calculations Explained

Posted on 30/10/2020

From Thursday 23rd October Scottish Golf started the World Handicap System (WHS) transition process of golfer handicaps as we move to implement the new WHS. The main part of this transition was the calculation of every current CONGU Handicap into a WHS Index and golfers may have noticed their projected handicap has changed several times over the last few days as we aligned the data from the two systems.

To find out more about how we have generated initial handicap values that are as accurate as possible, please click here to access our WHS Initial Handicap Index document. This document also aims to answer some of the additional questions golfers may have around the process.
