Rules of Golf and Handicapping

Last Updated: 29 October 2020



As the golf season begins to wind down across Canada, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the educational opportunities available to you as a Golf Canada Member


With the release of the World Handicapping System (WHS) in January, it is important to understand the changes and how it impacts you – the golfer!

For those that are interested in learning more about the World Handicapping System, we have created an online presentation that highlights the major changes to the Rules of Handicapping. By comparing the WHS to the previous system and providing the rationale for the change, Golf Canada members will have a better understanding and will feel confident as they continue to post scores and maintain their Handicap Index.

Keeping Scores during the Winter Months on the Golf Canada Network

Last Updated: 29 October 2020




The World Handicap System (WHS) permits British Columbia Golf to determine a period of time when scores made in specific areas of the province cannot be submitted for handicap purposes because course conditions are exceptionally poor.

Due to the different playing conditions occurring within the various geographical areas of the province, British Columbia Golf has invoked a mandatory inactive season for handicap purposes for those areas in the province where golf cannot be played year-round.Posting of all local scores played in British Columbia for handicap purposes is suspended during the period November 15 to February 28, for all members in areas where golf cannot be played year-round. This period is mandatory.

The areas where golf can be played year-round and will have their active season extended are: The Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island.

Procedure during the period November 15 to February 28

For the areas with an extended active season, as identified above, we will adjust the Course and Slope ratings so that they reflect the winter play conditions. Throughout the winter months, we will continue to monitor and adjust the Course Ratings as necessary.
