WHS 5: Transition Handicaps

  • 4 Typical Player Types

Transition Handicaps

To move from CONGU to WHS handicaps, all players' Handicap Records were reprocessed using the WHS principles. The calculations identified the best 8 of the last 20 Qualifying Scores, if posted since January 2018, and factored in:

• The adjusted Gross Score
• The Course Rating
• Any CSS adjustments
• The Slope Rating of the tees played

With less than 20 scores since January 2018, the calculation was done in a similar manner to the method of allocating new handicaps: 

  • 3 scores: lowest score -2
  • 4 scores: lowest score -1
  • 5 scores: lowest score
  • 6 scores: average of lowest 2 scores -1
  • 7 to 8 scores: average of lowest 2 scores
  • 9 to 11 scores: average of lowest 3 scores
  • 12 to 14 scores: average of lowest 4 scores
  • 15 to 16 scores: average of lowest 5 scores
  • 17 to 18 scores: average of lowest 6 scores
  • 19 scores: average of lowest 7 scores
  • 20 scores: average of lowest 8 scores
