WHS Certificates, Conversion Tables and Handicap Allowances

World Handicap System
Every registered golf club member has a Handicap Index that is then converted to a course Playing Handicap that varies according to the difficulty of the course being played. Copies of the Beauchief Golf Course Conversion Tables can be viewed using the link below. These tables enable a player to convert a Handicap Index to a Course Handicap, depending on which tees are in use.

In competitions there is also a Handicap Allowance to take into account and that depends on the format of play. The table of these England Golf allowances (see the link below) converts your Course Handicap into the allowance for the competition and will, wherever applicable, be incorporated in the setup of each competition.

It is your responsibility, if you sign up to play in a competition or a Casual round, to submit your scores that same day using HowDidiDo.
