Android World Handicap Support launched!

Golf Pad has released the latest Android app version which includes World Handicap Support. (WHS).  Have you started using the new scoring system? Leave a comment and tell us how you like it. Learn more here.  


I tried to switch to the WHS handicap calculator in the app (from CONGU) but it didn't seem to work properly. From what I understand of WHS, I would have expected all of my current rounds to be valid - however, when you switched, the app shows all of my existing rounds (which are valid under CONGU) as not a valid WHS course

Hi David - Thanks for your comment. We had a few subsequent updates after this launch. Will you confirm you are using the latest by checking in the app store for updates? Let me know and we'll go from there.  - Cindy

Hi Cindy. I've checked the play store and there's no update showing as available, and in the app my version is showing as 15.6 (which I believe is the latest?) Thanks, David

Yes, that's the latest version. I'm looking into this for you. I'll post an update as soon as I have it. - Cindy

Hi David - we are looking into this. Looks like we may need to add a way to add ratings and slope in addition to SSS in completed rounds. - Cindy

Thanks for the update Cindy. Fortunately have a few months before switching to WHS :) One quick note - they're UK courses (under CONGU) and so I don't believe slope rating is a factor (slope is, I think, a USGA thing?). From what I can tell, the only handicap factor in the rounds is SSS

David, that's correct - only SSS is required for CONGU handicap. WHS relies on rating and slope though. We will be updating our database to include these for the course in the UK as the data becomes available.
