If you have an England Golf account you will probably have recently received the first of four "Members News" emails that will be sent out over the next 4 weeks about the introduction of the World Handicap System.
The email includes a link to this Golfer Education page on the England Golf website, which will be updated each week.
The focus of week one is An introduction to the World Handicap System which focuses on the key basics:
- How your Handicap index is calculated
- What is a Course Handicap
- When to return a score for handicap purposes
Next week's newsletter we will go into more detail about your Handicap Index and Course Handicap.
There is a link on the page that you can use to register for an England Golf account if you don't have one already. This will enable to you to receive the weekly WHS newsletters and to have access to the England Golf WHS Platform when it is rolled out - this is where you will be able to check your WHS handicap and playing record.
Another benefit of registering with England Golf is that you receive free Personal Liability Insurance cover for golf.
