World Handicapping Scheme Education
« on: Jul 26, 2020, 10:24:41 »
 England Golf have put together a "toolkit" that clubs can use to educate and inform their members, however this toolkit requires users to download roughly 80 individual documents and then either print them out or post them to social media....its got some useful information in there but is all a bit clumsy to extract. England Golfs plan is for clubs to "drip-feed" their members with information and have produced a timeline covering up until early October for release of information.

I have decided to create my own "educational resources" for my club, either writing them from scratch or using some of the better presented England Golf material. This will consist of approximately 7 documents each covering various parts of the WHS which will be released in accordance with the England Golf time line.

Would anyone be interested in me sharing what I produce here?

OK...the plan is to keep things reasonably simple....the 7 documents that i plan to produce will cover:

1) A simple overview of the WHS, very high level, how it compares to CONGU and a glossary of some of the new terms
2) An explanation of Course Rating - how it is calculated, what it actually means
3) An explanation of Slope Rating and how it is used
4) Handicap Index - how do you get one, how do your scores affect it
5) Course Handicap - how you convert your Handicap Index to a Course Handicap
6) Playing Handicap - converting your Course Handicap into a playing handicap and the various stroke allowances for different formats
7) General Play and Competitions -  how you use your handicap index, course condition adjustments, exceptional scores, soft and hard capping, allowable formats, how bad holes are treated.

The aim is to keep things relatively simple and identify what is really relevant to the player in order to help them understand how their handicap works. I don't intend to try to explain WHY things are as they are. Originally I had intended to run a presentation at the club where I could stick up bullet points and talk around those points but Covid looks likely to put paid to that idea. So now it will be a series of word documents for publication via email which obviously need a little bit more explanation as I wont be able to talk around the various points. The intention is to try to keep each one relatively short...3 or 4 pages maximum...to avoid folks falling asleep or just ignoring.

I'll post the first one up later today.

Nick

Am I right in thinking that as long as you know your Handicap Index it’s more than likely that your Course Handicap will be available from a table - or if using an app calculated by it - depending on the tee you’re playing from.
Any adjustment for the format would then be similar to what we do now - eg 90% for better ball difference

I noticed a comment.....Why are England Golf and Scottish Golf taking differing routes on this?? Surely it's meant to be a uniform solution or is that too simplistic?

The only difference I am aware of is that I believe Scottish Golf have decided to develop their own underlying software system to support the WHS. I believe that England, Wales and Ireland will all use the same system which is developed by a company called Dot Golf. Dot Golf have been running their system in New Zealand for a number of years now.

Other than that, I'm not aware of any differences in how Scottish Golf might apply the various "rules" of the handicapping system.

Isn't it always the case if England do something Scotland has to question/doubt it and do something different :banghead: :chuckle:
