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: The new handicap you receive is a handicap index(HI), which is not yourhandicap as before. This is used when looking up what handicap you will play off.
There are 2 methods to work out what handicap to play off:
1. Look up what tee you are playing off on a board at the course you are playing at and you should be able to see your course handicap (CH) which is the handicap you must play off on that day off the chosen tees
2. Enter the course and tees you are playing off on the SAGA app. Push the calculate button and it will tell you your course handicap
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 handicap index's. 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 or enter the score on your SAGA app. 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 enter your scores on the SAGA app or 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.
