Your Course Handicap depends on the Slope Rating of whatever course you play.

Blue: 135
White: 130
Yellow: 128
Red: 123.

Winter Rules

Rounds played using "Placing Everywhere" cannot be used for Handicap Purposes.

Your Course Handicap is used by WHS to re-calculate your new handicap following every counting round you play on any course.
Your Playing Handicap is used for the competition you are playing - this tells you where you have shots.

Handicap Index Slope Rating   

Your Handicap Index is the average of the best 8 Score Differences from your last 20

Score Difference depends on the Rating of the Course and the difficulty (weather) on the day (PCC).

For singles competition use 95% of Course Handicap (Playing Handicap)

For Fourball Stroke use 85%

For Fourball Matchplay use 90%

Handicap Indexes may change during December, while the new system is bedding in.

The new Handicap Master software is currently being updated to take account of WHS.
