Please see below the latest update from England Golf concerning the introduction of the World Handicap System.

West End have had about 5% of our members who have had problems with the change. Considering that we are a relatively large club this does come to a lot problems!

Problems seem to be in these areas:-
1. Initially many members hadn't registered due to not having an email address or D.O.B. on the WHS system. We have managed to solve this.

2. Five of our members were not on the new system - 2 of these are now sorted.

3. Several had 'pending scores' with no Handicap Index - England Golf seem to lowering these numbers daily.

4. Incorrect Tees - We have found that the majority of the Mid Week 9 Hole Stablefords stated that they were played from the Yellow Tees, when in fact they were played from the White Tees. England Golf are again dealing with this.

5. A few members were showing that they had no scores on the system, although given an Handicap Index. Again England Golf are dealing with this.

England Golf are 60% the way through dealing with all these problems. When you look at the number of golfers in the U.K. this must be hell of a job.

If you believe that your Handicap details are incorrect please let myself or Darren know and hopefully we can get England Golf to sort it.

On behalf of our members can I thank Darren for taking on most of these problems.

Hopefully between us these will be solved by the time we get back on the course.
