Following the recent press statement confirming the development of a World Handicap System (WHS), the R&A and USGA are to embark upon some market research and advocacy work around the world to gather insights and feedback directly from golfers and other Club stakeholders on the key principles of the WHS, as well as some of the detailed proposals.
See information page
The research will be twofold:
1. Quantitative research – taking the form of an online survey in many countries around the world
2. Qualitative research – taking the form of focus groups in 6 key markets around the world.
England Golf will be hosting one of these Focus Groups and you will be asked during the survey if you would be willing to take part, if this is of interest please sign up and participants will be selected at random by the R&A.
This is a great opportunity for all golfers, irrespective of ability or handicap experience to have a say in the WHS. We are looking to get the views of Club Managers, Handicap committee members, Club Owners and PGA professionals as part of the survey, so please feel free to share amongst your club officials and your membership.
