The Nigeria Golf Federation (NGF) has said it has begun the process of enrolling Nigerian amateur golfers into the World Handicap System (WHS).

NGF President Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, who disclosed this on Monday, February 14, said the technical committee had already briefed the board on the process which he described as an innovation in the history of the game in Nigeria.

The NGF president said the software will score everybody such that a 28- handicapper will now know exactly what is expected of him in an eight or 18-hole round of golf.

Furthermore, he disclosed that Royal and Ancient (R&A) who are the custodians of the game of gold had asked the NGF to choose 10 golf clubs to help with members to start the WHS exercise.

Consequently, in order to comply with the directive, Runsewe said in the past two weeks, the NGF had done seven clubs across the country while the remaining three- Port Harcourt, Enugu and Asaba were awaiting integration.

He said that three clubs, Ikoyi, Kano and Ikeja that bypassed NGF by making direct contact with R & A regarding the process were referred back to the federation.

“The Handicap system is the latest software in the whole world that will enable every Nigerian golfer to be licensed with his Handicap Document. I can assure you in the next two, three months, Nigeria will be fully integrated into the WHS system,” Runsewe said.

The NGF president also said Nigerian club golfers that are captured on the system will have their handicap recognized on the software in any part of the world.
