The World Handicap System (WHS) launched on Jan. 1, 2020. Due to significant changes to the handicap system, all clubs MUST be certified by June 30, 2020. In order to be certified, a representative from the club is required to pass an online exam.
Rules of Handicapping Workshops
The CSGA will be teaching in-person workshops to help prepare for the online exam. Two workshops have been scheduled for early 2020. Additional workshops will be added to the schedule soon.
An online World Handicap System education and certification program is available here. This program was developed to assist golf clubs who might be unable to
attend a workshop in person. It consists of four educational video segments, with each segment made available after the previous one has been viewed. After all segments have been completed, the 20-question quiz will be made available. Quiz submissions will be reported to the USGA and CSGA for results recording purposes.
Additional in person workshops are being scheduled and will be announced shortly.
A World Handicap System Presentation created for educating and authorizing clubs is available here. This presentation is intended to provide a one hour overview of the WHS and Rules of Handicapping. Please note: the .PDF file is large and contains videos to aid in the presentation. Download may take several minutes depending on your internet connection.
The online certification quiz may be taken here. Clubs successfully passing this quiz will be certified under the World Handicap System.
