2024 WHS Update

Just as with the Rules of Golf, the WHS™ Rules of Handicapping & Course Rating will be updated every four years – this is set to be the year preceding the Rules of Golf change (last update January 2023). This allows WHS™ to be appropriately adapted to any impacts from the Rules of Golf changes. The WHA have announced the next WHS™ update for the 1 January, 2024. The changes are summarised below:

Rules of Handicapping

  • Introduction of Course Rating™ minus PAR (within GB&I)
  • Introduction of acceptable scores from fourball betterball formats (within GB&I)
  • Implementation of Expected Scoring
  • Using Un-rounded Course Handicap™ calculation where computer precision is used  

Course Rating

  • Course Rating™
  • Rating of courses of a minimum 1500 yards
  • Standardising Par
