WHS GHIN Changeover update - 03/05/2020

  1. Due to the new WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM (WHS), handicap revisions will no longer be posted as they are updated daily. They are available on your mobile phone app, the club computer, and ghin.com.
  2. Because handicaps are updated daily you need to post scores by midnight of the day you play  WHS rule 1.3 i).
  3. It is recommended that scores be posted hole by hole. This is easy to do and will automatically do math for each 9, total score, and take care of any Net Double Bogey holes.
  4. Net Double Bogey = Par + 2 + any handicap strokes you are entitled to on the hole.
  5. The old procedure of Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) has been abolished in favor of Net Double Bogey (#3 above).
