(No. 9)WHS-Competition Handicaps
Saturday 10th October 2020
Having been awarded a Handicap Index and then found your Course Handicap from the Slope Chart, you have used this to play your Social Golf (H-C-P).
For Competition Golf, you will convert your Course Handicap into your Playing Handicap.
Just as it is now, different types of Competitions (Individual Medal and Stableford, Fourball Betterball, Foursomes and Scrambles etc) have different allowances.
With WHS, this will still be case, with the main difference being that all Individual Medal and Stableford Competitions will be played using 95% of the Course Handicap
Players with Course Handicap from +6 to 10 will not change.
Those with Course Handicap from 11 to 30 will loose 1 shot.
From 31 to 50 will loose 2 shots and anyone else will loose 3 shots.
The allowances for all types of Competitions will be shown when the Competition is set up on the website.
