World Handicap System

As you may be aware, on the 2nd November, the World Handicap System will become active.

Your club handicap is currently processed within the IntelligentGolf System which is in turn processed under a licence from the Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU).

On 2nd November, the World Handicap System (WHS) will be introduced and your information will be processed by a Central Server provided operated by England Golf.

We will continue to input all of the competition details via IntelligentGolf but under the WHS these will now need to be passed to this Central Server.

In order for Members to be awarded a handicap under the WHS, Roehampton Club needs to provide them with the following information:

  • Date of Birth
  • Email Address
  • Gender
