Welcome NCGA Handicap Chairs!
"Congratulations and/or condolences on your appointment as Handicap Chair . . . one of the most important, yet least appreciated officials within any club.
The NCGA has amassed all sorts of resources for your use and stands ready to assist you in all your handicapping pursuits.
The Rules of Handicapping is a must for every Handicap Chair and you'll want to bookmark both the NCGA Handicapping Resource Page as well as the USGA resource page. Lastly, check out our helpful World Handicap System (WHS) Hub.
It is important to understand that the WHS carries a mandatory educational requirement. That is, each club must have a representative, ideally you, complete approved online education (and pass a quiz) before your club can issue "official" handicaps. Here is a link to an online USGA seminar that satisfies the requirement (four relatively short videos and a quiz).
Good luck with your handicapping activities!"
Director of Handicapping
World Handicap System Certification
Before you or your members can receive your handicap indexes, you'll need to complete the WHS Certification. The online offering consists of four short videos (15-22 minutes each) and concludes with a quiz that a user must score at least an 80% on in order to secure credit for their club.
