World Handicap System Certification

The World Handicap System™ (WHS) took effect Jan. 1, 2020 and in 2024 saw its first revision cycle. This year, all clubs MUST be certified by June 30, 2024 by passing an online quiz. The quiz link (and further instruction) is located in CDGA Club Admin. If you are the quiz taker for your club and you do not have access to Club Admin, please contact your golf professional or main club contact. The USGA & CDGA will be tracking who has completed this requirement.

CLICK HERE to view a complete list of clubs that have already completed the mandatory certification. If you feel your club is missing from the list, please reach out to Lynn Boyd by lboyd@cdga.org or phone at (630) 685-2304.

The CDGA will be teaching two (2) in-person seminars for those interested. All other online educational content can be found on the WORLD HANDICAP RESOURCE HUB. You do not need to participate in an in-person seminar to complete the certification requirement.

  • The Seminar will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude by 11:30 a.m.
  • There is no registration fee for this event
  • Each seminar is limited to 80 people (if less than 20 individuals are registered by the deadline, this session will be canceled)
  • All PGA members will receive PGA Educational Credit.
  • (Note: Handicap ID is not a requirement for registration)
