WHS 5: Transition Handicaps
In order to move from CONGU to WHS handicaps, all players' current Handicap Records will be reprocessed using the WHS principles. The calculation will identify the best 8 of the last 20 Qualifying Scores, if posted since January 2018, and factor in:
- • The adjusted Gross Score (Score Differential)
- • The Course Rating (or SSS)
- • Any PCC (or CSS) adjustments
- • The Slope Rating of the tees played
If a player has submitted less than 20 scores in the last 2 years, the calculation will be done in a similar manner to the method of allocating new handicaps, as shown below.
If less than 20 Qualifying Scores posted in the last 2 years
- 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
If a player has no Qualifying Scores posted in the last 2 years, the Transition Handicap will be calculated on the basis of the 3 lowest scores being equal to their current playing handicap. So a player with a 20 handicap will have scores of 20, 20 and 20 on their Scoring Record and their handicap at Transition will be (20 - 2) = 18.

I wanted to let you know that the Gloucester Golf Club is an excellent choice for a wake; it’s close to the crematorium, there is a car park and it is a large comfortable room surrounded by greenery. Diane and Tim AdamsWake 24/02/2020Read More Testimonials
