Why MPowerMSL?

The World Handicap System (WHS) is an initiative from the R&A and USGA designed to enable as many golfers as possible to obtain a handicap and use that handicap on any golf course around the world. An agreed method of maintaining a handicap allows golfers to compete or play recreational golf with any other golfer on a level playing field. 

As Golf Australia’s technology partner through to 2025, MPower MSL is also implementing the WHS in Australia where it established a world first centralised golf handicap system 20 years ago. GolfBox – an MSL Company, is also the current provider of the European Golf Association (EGA) Handicap System serving federations and golfers in Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, with more European jurisdictions due to sign on later in 2019.

In addition to providing core handicapping services, MSL’s WHS solution provides national associations with an array of options to commercialise their data and provide a range of high-quality services to engage their golfers in the game. These include national virtual competitions, business intelligence and analytics, customer service facilities, tee times and individual handicap display.
