For the first time in golf’s history, non-club members in England can now obtain an official handicap. England Golf, the governing body of the amateur game, is offering non-club members access to an official handicap index under the World Handicap System (WHS), which launched in England in November 2020. You can sign up here to become part of a community of likeminded golfers, for just £40 a year.

Full information on the iGolf initiative can be found in the sidebar together with two letters from England Golf detailing the background to the iGolf launch in July 2021.
