World Handicap System
Event at Ratho Park Golf Club
Members Only
Diary Event

John Glen and Eddie Poyner of our Match & Handicap Committee, recently attended an seminar on the new World Handicap System at Ratho Park Golf Club which provided some interesting information regarding the upcoming changes to handicaps which will affect all golfers.

Please click the WHS FAQ link which provides some useful answers. The changes will not come into effect in Scotland until 01 Nov 2020. Similar to the new rules evening we hosted earlier this year, we plan to provide an information evening at thef Club sometime in April/May of next year to help prepare all our members for the changes.

These changes are coming so rather than resisting them it behoves us all to better educate ourselves and embrace the new procedures. For those of you who wish to investigate the WHS in more detail, there are numerous resources on the R&A website.

Nice bright day to start club championship week. Greens cut, tee markers moved and tees divotted. Bunkers and tee bankings cut, followed by tidy up and full bunker rake.
