The World Handicap System (WHS) does not change the way golf is played but rather it changes how handicaps are operated and allows portability of handicap around the world. The key idea from a playing perspective is that members will have a handicap index, members can then look up a chart to tell them what their course handicap will be on a particular set of tees at a golf club. Depending on the format of play members will then have to apply handicap allowances to give the playing handicap for that round. Please see our Players Guide for an illustration of this. Members will have resources online and at the club to confirm what their handicap index & course handicap will be. See the Course Handicap Tables at CRGC (includes all 9 and 18 hole courses). (NOTE: You don’t need to print these out – a lookup board is now posted outside the Pro Shop.) Handicap allowances will also be detailed for each competition and competition scorecards will confirm the strokes members will receive.
