Know the Score

How does the World Handicap System work?

In order for the World Handicap System to work, golfers will need to obtain a Handicap Index.

For regular golfers, this will be done by:

Calculating the best eight scores from the previous 20 rounds

For new golfers, they will have to:

Submit scorecards of 54 holes (3x 18 holes, 6x 9 holes or any combination of 9 and 18 holes) to their golf club’s Handicap Committee

To ensure a player has only one Handicap Index, golfers will nominate a home club.
