On 3 September 2018 we will be implemented with a new Course and Slope Rating System which will influence your Handicap Calculation. Under this system, your course handicap on any given day will be determined according to the difficulty of the course you choose to play. GolfRSA believes that this will be fairer than our current handicap which does not equalise the higher and lower handicaps well on a difficult golf course. It will also bring SA in line with the rest of the world when the World Handicap System is implemented and make our Handicap Index portable from country to country. Over the next couple of months we will assist in explaining the process, so that as of the 3rd September you are fully aware of the new system.

Please see attached with some explanations on the new system.

Our course slope rating will be as follows:


Men (72)
Women (72)

With the aim of ensuring that all players are equipped with high quality and fully functional handicap cards, HNA will be issuing a brand-new card, with a fresh look, to all affiliated golfers during the course of June 2018. This new card will replace the grey SRIXON SAGA handicap card that is currently in circulation. Importantly, there will be no cost to either the club or the player.

Here is a sneak preview of the newly-designed handicap card:

“Both these golfers see golf as a social pastime. It’s an opportunity to have an enjoyable outdoor hobby that they can enjoy with friends. They like to hit good shots but know they won’t have the time or inclination to commit to be as good they can be. But both could increase the number of good shots they hit quite easily if they looked for the easy, big wins open to most golfers.”

Your distance potential is determined to large extent by your clubhead speed and we
want to make sure you’re not losing out. We can do this using a combination of appropriate technique
adjustments and golf-specific fitness exercises.

Clubhead speed, as the name suggests, is the speed of the clubhead immediately before impact with the golf ball,
and it has a big impact on your potential distance.
