When does the new World Handicap System come into place?
Any golfer with a current CONGU handicap will be given a World Handicap System index on Monday, November 2, 2020.
Is the new golf handicap system mandatory?
Yes. In Great Britain & Ireland, the current handicapping system, which is maintained by CONGU, will be replaced by one single, global system. It is designed so golfers will be able to obtain and maintain a handicap index and use this to compete on a fair and equal basis across any format, on any course around the world.
