World Handicap System Certification

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all 2020 CDGA World Handicap System Seminars will proceed as webinar-only events. Registration for these certification seminars is still open.

The World Handicap System (WHS) took effect Jan. 1, 2020. Due to the significant changes to the handicap system, all clubs MUST be certified by June 30, 2020. In order to be certified, a representative from the club is required to pass an online exam that will be distributed via a separate link by the CDGA.

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 email or phone at (630) 685-2304.

The CDGA will be teaching online webinars to help prepare for the online exam (the webinar is optional but highly recommended). Five webinars have been scheduled for spring 2020 and all are limited to 80 participants. The full presentation recording will also be available through, but will not be posted until late spring.

Each webinar begins at 9:30 a.m. and should conclude by 12 p.m. There is no fee for CDGA member clubs to attend and multiple individuals from the same club may attend. For non-CDGA member clubs, the registration fee is $75 per person to be paid over the phone via credit card. Space is limited and registration must be submitted by the entry deadline.

We ask that you do not share the webinar link with others as we can only accommodate 80 individuals in each session. .

(Note: CDGA number is not a requirement for registration)
