This month, further to the emails we have recently sent you regarding the changes to the GolfRSA Handicap System, we would like to share with you a summary of the GolfRSA Handicap Rules, which will come into effect on Monday 3 September 2018.
Please remember to help your fellow golfers to understand the changes as a result of the adoption of the USGA Course Rating system. Some of them may not have been receiving these communications from us or their clubs.
We are confident that, after a little time, you will come to appreciate that the USGA Course Rating System will give us all a more accurate and fair Course Handicap, as well as allow us to choose to play off any colour course (tee) for men, and those rated for women, at a club on any given day.

The complete 2018 GolfRSA Handicap Rules Manual, effective 3 September 2018, can be viewed or downloaded from www.golfrsa.co.za or www.handicaps.co.za websites, under the Course Ratings & Handicaps tab.
