What You Need To Know About World Handicapping System

A guide to playing golf using the newly introduced World Handicapping System (WHS)
We are now using the new World handicap System, which is organised in a different way to what we have become used to over the years.
Your handicap is based on the average of your best 8 scores out of your last 20, and there are more options to play rounds which can affect your handicap.
You now have 4 OPTIONS when you go to play a round of golf
You should CHOOSE ONLY ONE OPTION
The World Handicapping System encourages you to play "counting rounds" so that your Handicap Index will be a truer reflection of your ability
The system relies on the integrity of the players who MUST pre-enter AND return your score (good or bad) each time you play a counting round
OPTION 1
Playing in an 18-Hole COMPETITION which is set up on the Club Computer
  • Type in your Golf Ireland Number (e.g. 3254 . . . . or 6254 . . . .g g) BEFORE you play (in the Locker Room OR Shop)
  • Choose the Competition which is already set up for that day
  • The Computer will give you your COURSE HANDICAP for the day (You MUST put this on your CARD)
  • Your Playing Handicap (Singles: 95%) will be used for the Competition ONLY (You should include this on the Card also)
  • Enter your Scores when you come in and Return Your Card (This is MANDATORY with the New System)
  • Your score will be sent automatically to the WHS and your handicap re-calculated
  • OPTION 2
    Playing a GENERAL PLAY round using the Club Computer when NO COMPETITION is on that day
  • Type in your Golf Ireland Number (e.g. 3254 . . . . or 6254 . . . .) BEFORE you play (in the Locker Room OR Shop)
  • Choose "General Play" and follow the on-screen instructions
  • The Computer will give you your COURSE HANDICAP for the Tees/Course being used (You MUST put this on your CARD)
  • Enter your Scores when you come in and Return Your Card (This is MANDATORY with the New System)
  • Your score will be sent automatically to the WHS and your handicap re-calculated
