World Handicap System Workshop 24th October

Ramside Hall Golf Club (13:30 - 16:30)


England Golf is working closely with The USGA and The R&A to help introduce the new single World Handicap System for the sport. Together with golf’s handicapping authorities they are developing a universal system which will come into force across the world from 2020.

The second round of workshops are being run across England this Autumn, hosted and presented by England Golf representatives. We will provide further details of the World Handicap System using practical examples to explain how it will impact on your golf club and its members.

We anticipate that places will be highly sought after, so will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

Please note: Places are limited to three delegates per club so ensure you agree in advance who should be attending from your club.
