World Handicap Seminar dates announced

The World Handicap System (WHS) is set to launch in 2020 and will replace the six different systems currently in use by over 15 million golfers around the world.
It will bring these together into a single set of Rules for Handicapping, enabling golfers of different abilities to play and compete on a fair and equal basis, no matter where they play.
The R and A and The United States Golf Association (USGA) have developed the World Handicap System to include
  •  Course rating and slope rating
  • Maximum Handicap of 54
  • Abnormal course and weather conditions adjustment
  • Competitive and recreational scores can count for handicap
  • Handicaps calculated from an average of a player’s most recent scores
To help golf clubs prepare for the launch of WHS in 2020, Scottish Golf will be hosting an initial phase of 12 seminars around the country aimed at educating clubs to ease transition to the new system.
Seminars will take place between August 5 and August 29, 2019. These evening Seminars will take place between 6.30pm and 8.30pm, with two delegates per club with responsibility for handicapping invited to attend.
