GolfRSA suggests a maximum Handicap index of 13 for non handicapped golfers

Players without South African handicap Indexes
South African players who are not affiliated to Golf RSA are outside the scope of this Handicapping
System. Where such players compete against players with Golf RSA handicap indexes, it is
recommended that in the absence of any handicap history, organizing committees allow men a
maximum Handicap Index of 13.0 and ladies a maximum Handicap Index of 20.0.
