The handicapping system going forward

Dear Golfer,
No one really likes change and while we are pleased that the major changes to the Handicap System are behind us, there are, however, still a few less disruptive ones to come.
This month we provide you with a broad overview of the current GolfRSA Handicap Rules and then highlight the changes planned to be introduced in October 2019, followed by the final changes to be introduced in January 2020 to comply with the World Handicap System launch.
Please don’t worry if you don’t understand some or all of it, because we will be going into more detail with both the clubs and you, the golfers, over the next few months – so there will be plenty of communication before any of the changes are introduced.
We welcome any questions you may have so please don’t hesitate to email us at for any handicap related queries.
