THE R&A AND USGA WORK WITH HANDICAP AUTHORITIES TO DEVELOP A SINGLE WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM

more information

R&A and United States Golf Association release statement on the development of a World Handicap System

To – All Australian Golf Clubs

Overnight, The R&A and the United States Golf Association released a public statement regarding the development of a World Handicap System – this statement is attached for your information.  The communication from The R&A and USGA follows a brief update on this subject that was provided to all Australian golf clubs by the Chairman of Golf Australia in July 2015.

The GA Chairman's 2015 update includes important information on Golf Australia's position in relation to the World Handicap System.  This information remains current and we continue to look forward to receiving from the R&A and USGA the final proposal on the make-up of the new system.  The 2015 statement is available from the following GA webpage – www.golf.org.au/world-handicap-system

Golf Australia would continue to manage and govern handicapping in Australia under a World Handicap System.  Golf Australia’s national computerised handicapping service, GOLF Link, would continue to perform the same role in Australia under a World Handicap System that it currently does.  The personal data of Australian golfers that is held within the GOLF Link database would not be shared with entities outside of Australia.  The only public display website for handicaps held by Australians under a World Handicap System would continue to be the Golf Australia website – www.golf.org.au.

Please contact me should you have any queries.

Kind regards,

Simon Magdulski
Director – Rules & Handicapping, Golf Australia


 
The following link is to the ‘Daily Handicap Lookup Chart’ on the Golf Australia Website. Charts can be printed for all clubs according to the tees at that course. The copy and paste into Word is the best result. Also, coloured charts in A4 or A3 may be obtained from Golf Australia or Golf Victoria for your club. It is a good idea to laminate these charts when they are displayed.
