This month we update you on the recent Junior U13 handicapping changes and give you a sneak preview of the new Premium Golfer Login section which we will be launching soon.
With the first month of 2014 behind us, and with all of us back into the swing of things both work and golfing wise, it’s time to look back at 2013 and share a few interesting stats on how the year unfolded. We also explore the topic of handicaps becoming invalid and being shown as N/A.
This month we cover the significant handicap changes that were implemented over the past three years and provide you with a sneak preview of our new Golfer Login section which is due to go live soon.
In this month’s news we advise of the South African Golf Association's (SAGA) decision to follow the lead of major golfing countries and license the United States Golf Association (USGA) course rating system, and discuss the importance of peer review as the main control in the handicap system.
This month we give you the latest handicap statistics for the period 1 January to 30 June 2013 as well further insight into why golfers need to adjust their handicaps when playing a competition off a tee with a different Standard Rating from the rest of the competition field.
This month we unveil the new SAGA Handicap card, remind you about the recent changes made to the SAGA Handicap system and give you the results of the golfer survey which we ran at the beginning of this year. We also highlight the reasons for the need to adjust handicaps when using different tees and introduce you to a new partner focused on providing all card holders with great deals on golf equipment and accessories.
This month we remind you to please assist the SAGA by completing our online Golfer Survey, we look at some interesting scoring statistics from 2012, discuss our long-term study of Better Ball competition winners and encourage you to take advantage of the final days of the Castle Lite Challenge.
We are pleased to announce that our new website has gone live. You will find it easier to navigate and it delivers a better experience when entering scores, looking up handicaps and getting the latest golfing and handicap news. We will also roll out further enhancements to the system in 2013.
This month we take a breather from handicap news and statistics and focus on the Castle Lite Challenge which has been in full swing since the beginning of September. All players over the age of 18 automatically qualified for the competition and entries were earned simply by playing golf and entering one’s score.
This month we share statistics on the average handicap of all players on the system and compare them to earlier in the year. We have also included a Q&A section to cover frequently asked questions.
