How your Handicap works and how to correctly score.
The current handicapping system is based on your last 20 scores. The calculation takes the best 8 of your last 20 scores. The Handicap index is then calculated (HI). This is used to work out your course index (CI) either by looking it up on the SAGA app or a handicap sheet displayed at the club you are playing at.
As of 1 October 2019 new rules were implemented and the following changes have been made.
- You will be required to open a round to get your handicap for the course you are playing on that day.
- You will also have to close the round on the same day within the prescribed operating hours.
- Failing this your round will be "unregistered".
- No old scores are allowed to be entered any longer by the member nor the club.
- Late scores will be submitted but not registered therefore having no effect on your handicap.
We will no longer be issuing HNA handicap cards. There is a digital image of your card on the HNA app.
All you actually need is the HNA Handicaps app on your phone and your HNA Player ID. When you go to the golf club where you are playing you can open your round on the HNA Handicaps app. At the end of the round you enter your score on the app. There is also a digital image of your card on the app.
