World Handicap System 2020 – How do I find my Handicap Index?
If you have not yet received notification of your Handicap Index you can you can find it now that England Golf’s World Handicap System Members Early Access portal is now live and all you need is your CDH number to find out what you’re new index will be.
Once you have entered in your CDH number, you will be able to see your new Handicap Index and the 8 scores that contributed to it – if your club has uploaded your email address to the platform.
If your club has not yet uploaded your email address you will not be able to see which particular scores were taken into account, but you will see your Handicap Index.
This Handicap Index is not guaranteed just yet because England Golf are warning that it may still change between now and launch and there is some confusion because some New Handicap Indexes may have been miscalculated.
Some member’s historic scores were taken from the wrong tees and others have seen that Competition Scratch Score (CSS) was not taken into account in their qualifying scores.
There is a distinct possibility that some Clubs will find their Members’ Handicap Indexes being changed, but England Golf has assured them that they will be correct for the 2nd November.
So, wait until Monday 2 2020 until everything goes live and your Handicap Index should be confirmed.
Once your Golf Club Handicap Software has been updated you should be able to access your Handicap Index through the Club Computer before or as you sign in to play a round.
