    World Handicap System

    Would need to see all your scores along with the slope and course ratings of the courses played to give you a proper answer, but it could be right. If you want an accurate handicap are you aware you can now have an official handicap without being a member of a club?

    Potentially changing 4BBB Open Competitions- Any thoughts on alternate system?

    This is pretty much how it was under CONGU, and I agree would have been a better approach but it certainly would not have solved the problem, as it was also an issue under CONGU. Splitting competitions into divisions will have no effect on this problem as long-standing members will still be...

    Racism in sport
