Is there a conflict?
The WHS says:
Player Responsibilities. In order to comply with the requirements of the Rules of Handicapping, a player is expected to:
(ii) Have only one Handicap Index from a single scoring record, which is managed by the player’s home club in accordance with the Rules of Handicapping. Note: This Handicap Index will apply elsewhere, including at all other golf clubs of which the player is a member.
However GA says
(ii) Player Who Belongs to an Australian Golf Club or Clubs and to Golf Club/s Outside of Australia
Where a player is a member of an Australian club/s, and is also a member of a club located in a jurisdiction outside of Australia, the player is required by Golf Australia to have an Australian Home Club that is responsible for administering a GA Handicap through GOLF Link.
In addition to their GA Handicap, the player may be required by the other jurisdiction to hold a separate Handicap under that other jurisdiction. If this occurs, it is the player’s responsibility to ensure all scores are entered into GOLF Link, and that they are also posted in accordance with the requirements of the other jurisdiction.
Should there ever be a discrepancy between a player’s GA Handicap and their Handicap as issued by a different Authorized Association, the Handicap within the jurisdiction where the round is being played should be used. When playing outside of either jurisdiction, the lowest Handicap should be used
