WHS – World Handicapping System

The World Handicap System came into effect in Ireland on 2nd November 2020, replacing the current Unified Handicapping System (CONGU).

A series of educational resources are available below and club members are encouraged to familiarise themselves with these before the launch date.

The following 2 documents are particularly useful – the first one provides an overview of the WHS concepts and terminology, the second one serves as a WHS player reference guide
