WHS Transition Process

Tuesday, September 8, 2020

As we approach November, steps will be taken to start the transition process from the present system to the new World Handicap System. While most of these steps do not require any action on your part, we feel that it is important that you are aware of all the stages.

Stage 1: England Golf Platform - Course Data upload (17 July - 11 September)

CLUB ACTION – All courses should have by now uploaded their course data to the WHS platform. If not, it is essential that you contact your Club Support Officer and they can provide you with your unique link. This MUST be completed by Friday 11 September. If this is not done by this deadline, players’ handicap indexes may be incorrectly calculated.

Stage 2: England Golf Platform – CDH Platform (14 – 16 September)
During this window, we will be doing our first round of handicap transitions. This will be done using existing CDH data and will give us the opportunity to test the process using real scoring/course data.

CLUB ACTION – If you need to make any amendments to your registered course after 14 September, these must be done via your Platform Login and a change request submitted.

Stage 3: England Golf Platform – CDH Platform (5 October)
This will be the start of our dual phase where we will be running the CONGU system and new WHS simultaneously.

CLUB ACTION – From 5 October any changes to member details will need to be made via the platform.

Stage 4: England Golf Platform (Late October)
From late October, the club platform will be fully operational.

Golfers will be able to view their predicted handicap index on the England Golf website.

Stage 5: World Handicap System Go Live (2 November)
At 8pm on Sunday 1 November the current CDH will stop accepting scores in preparation for the launch.

On the morning of Monday 2 November, the World Handicap System will be launched in England.
