World Handicapping System

The handicapping system is changing this year and will take effect from the 2nd of November.
In very simple terms your existing handicap will be reviewed by the system and re-calculated by taking the average of your top 8 scores from the last 20 scores that you have submitted, going back to 2017.
There is a lot more to it than that, but a lot of it will be calculated for you by the system. We plan to send out a specific document next week explaining the changes in more detail and to help answer any concerns that you may have.
There is a lot of information on the Scottish Golf website- SGL ⛳
