The World Handicap System will be rolled out in Great Britain & Ireland on 2nd November 2020. From that date your handicap will be based on the average of your best 8 scores from the last 20 rounds. The main features of the system are described below.
Course Rating replaces Standard Scratch (SSS) and represents the score that a scratch golfer is expected to achieve on the course.
Slope Rating is the relative difficulty of a course from a specific set of tees for a bogey golfer compared to a scratch golfer, as described on the Course & Slope Rating page.
Singles Competition Rounds and Social Scores in Authorised Formats may be submitted for handicap purposes, as described on the Acceptable Scores page.
A measure of a player’s demonstrated ability calculated against the Slope Rating of a golf course of standard playing difficulty, as described on the Handicap Index page.
Course Handicap is the number of handicap strokes a player receives before Handicap Allowances, on a specific course and a specific set of tees.
Playing Handicap is the Course Handicap adjusted for any Handicap Allowances. It represents the actual number of strokes the player gives or receives for the round being played.
See the Course Handicaps page.
In order to move from CONGU to WHS handicaps, all players’ current Handicap Records will be reprocessed using the WHS principles, as described on the Transition Handicaps Page.
The WHS introduces a number of new terms as described on the Definitions Page.

I write on behalf of the Gloucestershire Captains following our Captains Day held at Gloucester Golf Club. Our association is indebted to you for providing a magnificent golfing experience. From start to finish your professional approach shone through and the day was as perfect as we could have wished for.
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.
Thank you Gloucester Golf Club for hosting our Family Christening, we really appreciate all you provided, it was great afternoon and so many people commented on the venue, the use of the TVs for the photos was great idea, a big thank you to you and all your staff
