All five rounds will be run under the WHS system but scores will NOT automatically be forwarded to England Golf.

GAGT Overseas Handicap System (OHA): Where appropriate handicaps will be adjusted after each round in line with the GAGT OHA system which is based on the CONGU handicap system prior to the introduction of WHS, details of which we can provide. Any adjustments will not affect your club Handicap Index.
The GAGT OHA system will take precedence over any adjustments made by a player’s home club so that everyone is operating on the same system as some clubs are slow to update overseas scores.
