How it Works
Thank you for taking your first steps to join as a member of Drakensberg Gardens Golf Club.
A picturesque 18-hole golf course situated in the Drakensberg region of KZN. Drakensberg Gardens Golf Club issues you with your official handicap.
In order for us to apply for your official handicap through Handicaps Network Africa, we require you to submit a minimum of 5 scores from any recognized 18-hole golf course in South Africa.
How this works: When you have handed in 5 scores the computer will take the differential of your best score. Differential is the difference between your score and the course rating. If you hand in 6 cards it will take an average of the top 2 scores. 7 scores submitted will use the top 3 scores until one has 12 scores submitted. The computer will then use the top 6 scores. When there are 20 scores the formula will take 96% of the average top 10 of the last 20 differentials.
SAGA Official Handicap Card
Click on www.handicaps.co.za to view the list of golfers registered with the various South African golf unions as well as their handicaps. The golfer’s last 20 scores as well as the dates they played and the courses are listed.
It is critical that we protect the integrity of this club and we are therefore asking the members to submit their scores within 72hrs of playing an 18 hole round of golf. When you have your S.A.G.A card you should swipe the card immediately at the course where you are playing. The club will be doing checks on members but ultimately other members should be making sure that their mates enter their scores so that the handicaps are correct at all times.
We will be able to place you on the HNA system as soon as you pay your membership fees and your S.A.G.A. card will be applied for, however, your official handicap will be generated immediately. The cards normally take 1 week to arrive from HNA so you should receive it within 2 weeks of applying. Until you receive your S.A.G.A. card, you can email your scores to firstname.lastname@example.org Your membership runs for a calendar year. If you join in June fees are payable again in June.
