As you will already be aware, change has arrived for amateur golfers around the globe. From next Monday, World Handicap System (WHS) will be in play.

Although originally launched in January 2020 in many countries, the new WHS will be in place for golfers in GB&I from November 2nd 2020, therefore directly affecting you as a golf club member.

In the build up to this date, there have been a lot of rumours circulating about why these governing bodies have decided to adopt a new World Handicap System, what it will entail, how it will work, and most of all how it will effect golfers' handicaps.

We want to put a stop to this uncertainty and ease the process from old to new by giving you, the golfer, some answers to these questions so that you know exactly what the changes to your handicap are and how WHS will work.

To do this, we travelled to Woodhall Spa to interview an expert on World Handicap System, Gemma Hunter the Head of Handicaps and Course Rating at England Golf. Although we have spoken to an England Golf representative here, everything in the series is applicable to the whole of GB&I.

Watch our full video series talking you through each aspect of WHS and make sure you're ready for next week!
