HOW TO GET YOUR WHS HANDICAP INDEX

RULES OF HANDICAPPING 2020 : - Rule 4 Submitting a Score

When moving from another Club your Handicap Index can be transferred to Horne Park upon receipt of your (10 digit) National ID number.

New members requiring a Handicap are to submit cards for 54 holes of golf , these can be 3 X 18 holes,
6 X 9 holes or any combination. However the preferred submission would contain at least 1 x 18 hole card. They must be played at Horne Park (preferably over a Measured Course) before a handicap can be issued.  Ideally all cards should be submitted within a six month period.

a) Cards must be dated and clearly marked 'For Handicap'. (See example)
b) Player's name to be printed as Player A.
c) Marker's name to be printed as Marker/Player D.     
           The Marker must be a Club Member (preferably with handicap).
d) Both the player and marker must sign the completed card.
e) The card should then be put into Handicap Secretary's box.

If the above procedure is not followed the cards will not be accepted.

When the required number of cards are submitted the player will be issued a WHS "Handicap Index" within the range +5.0 to  54.0. 
This "Handicap Index"  can be used worldwide and is used to calculate a "Course Handicap" for the course being played. The "Course Handicap" will change from course to course and even on tees used, and can be higher or lower than your "Handicap Index" depending upon the difficulty (Slope Rating) of the course. e.g. Course Handicap = "Handicap Index" x (Slope Rating/113).
