WHS RULES OF HANDICAPPING


2020 – TRANSITION OF CONGU HANDICAPS  TO WHS HANDICAP INDEX


In order to move from CONGU to WHS handicaps on the 2nd November 2020 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 during the last 3 years in Scotland, and factor in:

  • The adjusted Gross Score (Score Differential)
  • The Course Rating (or SSS)
  • The Slope Rating of the tees played
Check Out the Players reference guide above 


If a player has submitted less than 20 scores in the last 3 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
