By all reports, golfers accepted the change readily enough despite many not being aware the change was imminent. The Golflink website stood up fairly well under the circumstances and the round history and handicap calculation is easy and transparent.
I have heard of a few drastic changes in player handicaps to new golfers with only a few rounds under their belts. A few abnormalities have arisen because of referencing rounds of golf to old course ratings but this will be resolved in the roll out of the new course ratings in the near future.
Anyone unhappy with the new system? Did all go smoothly at your club?
