Resources for National Associations
Coming into 2020, more than 90 National Associations had attended an education seminar and a robust library of materials has been created to help them in the delivery of their own education programmes to state, regional and provincial associations and golf clubs.
National Associations are encouraged to utilise these resources – which include videos, posters, a PowerPoint presentation, and a template Player Guide.
The portal also provides the opportunity for National Associations to submit their discretionary choices and create their own Rule book.
Rules of Handicapping books are being produced and will be translated and delivered through national associations.
WHS Online Resource Portal
National Associations are encouraged to utilise all resources available to them via WHS.com. This platform allows them to login and support their clubs with the new World Handicap System roll out.Visit whs.com/resource-portal to login to the National Association Resource Portal.
What should clubs do?
Implementation plans will vary around the world and golf club administrators are encouraged to engage with their National Association to obtain information regarding launch dates and the assistance they need to prepare themselves and their membership for transition to the World Handicap System.
National Associations have access to a series of golfer-focused materials, including videos, infographics and posters which can be shared with golf clubs to help ensure a smooth transition.
What should golfers do?
We have developed a series of resources including video, download and infographic materials for all golfers in the build up to the introduction of the World Handicap System.
