As agreed at the AGM 2020, the following handicapping system was adopted by the Society:
|Scores of 24pts or less -||h'cap increased by 1|
|Scores from 25 to 33pts -||h'cap increased by 0.5|
|Scores from 304to 37pts -||h'cap unchanged|
|Scores from 38 to 40 pts -||h'cap reduced by 0.5|
|Scores of 41pts or more -||h'cap reduced by 1|
Where handicaps have changed, previous handicaps are in brackets
Members winning a stableford singles competition (excluding 36-hole aggregate competitions) will receive a 0.5 handicap reduction in addition to any change accorded by the guidelines above. Half point handicaps shall be rounded up. In addition, Society handicaps will not be raised above official club handicaps except when using the WHS playing handicap calculation.
Where new members do not have a club handicap, they should indicate their average gross score and the Committee will decide on a suitable handicap which will not be higher than 20 for men or 28 for ladies. This may be revised outside the above rules after two Society rounds.
Where necessary the handicapping committee may make other adjustments as it thinks fit.
