HNA Newsletter - August 2018

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.

"Golf is about how well you accept, respond to, and score with your misses much more so than it is a game of your perfect shots.” ~ Dr Bob Rotella
