Removal of Score Card Box @ OCC
Please note that with the implementation of the new Centralised Handicapping System (CHS), registered golfers will be able to submit scores and perform all their handicapping activities via multiple channels. Hence, please be informed that the my golf kaki score card box at Orchid Country Club will be removed with effect from 26 July 2016. For the full announcement, please refer below.
Registration for Centralised Handicapping System
The Singapore Golf Association (SGA) will be launching the Centralised Handicapping System (CHS) on 4 August. The CHS will replace the current handicapping system, providing a modern and unified platform for golf handicapping, changing the way golfers perform their handicapping activities, and introducing consistency in the calculation of golfers’ Handicap Index. CHS also tracks golfers who play at any golf course in Singapore and requires that a score be posted in order for golfers to avoid being awarded a penalty score. For more information, please visit SGA Centralised Handicapping System.
Handicap Membership Number
You will be receiving a letter from my golf kaki stating your Handicap Membership Number and more information about the registration for the Centralised Handicapping System. Please DO NOT key in your NRIC number as membership number.
Please click here for a step-by-step guide to the Online Registration for CHS.
Online Registration for CHS (with email account)
Once you have activated your account, you will be allowed to log in and view your Handicap Index, enter scores and enjoy the new system.
Offline Registration for CHS (without email account)
If you do not have an email account, please drop by the my golf kaki office for registration assistance by 25 July. However, please note that offline submission of scores will require at least ten (10) working days’ lead time. my golf kaki will not be liable for possible penalty imposed due to late submission of scores.
Posting of Scores
Scores can be posted anywhere and anytime either by the clubs or individually by golfers via the Internet or through a phone application (iOS or Android).
Opt Out of CHS
Players who did not register for CHS will not have a valid USGA Handicap Index as their handicap records will be removed from the system. Also, they will not be eligible to participate in tournaments that require a Handicap Index once they have opted out of the CHS.
Introduction Card (for Social Players)
The Club can issue you an introduction card that will reflect your status as a Social Member who no longer maintains a competitive handicap. The card will also include your last Handicap Index and it is valid for golf games at Marina Bay Golf Course and Orchid Country Club. It is at the discretion of the other golf clubs to allow you to play. Please email email@example.com should you choose to opt out and would like to request for an introduction card.
Blackout Period for Score Submission (26 July to 3 August 2016)
Please do not submit scores from 26 July to 3 August as it is the blackout period for system migration. Please keep your score cards and update the scores from 4 August onwards.
Please refer to SGA website for a list of frequently asked questions and SGA Personal Data Protection Policy. Should you require any further clarification, please contact my golf kaki at 6342 5736 /6342 4557 email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maintaining An Active Handicap Status
Members maintaining a handicap index with the Club are reminded that to be issued a USGA Handicap Index, golfers must conform to the USGA Handicap System 2012-2016 and the SGA Handicap Policy.
A player should post a score immediately after the round or as soon as practical; this can be an adjusted hole by hole score or just a gross score.
Obtain an Active Handicap Index
If you have arranged for a handicap transfer to the Club or have recently completed your Courtesy Round, please submit up to five 18-hole games or ten 9–hole games to obtain a Handicap Index. Please ensure at least one score is dated within the last 6 months (ie gap between date of plays not more than 6 months).
Opting Out of the Handicap System
You may choose to opt out should you not wish to continue to hold a USGA Handicap Index. Kindly be reminded that should you opt out, you are not required to post scores and meet any other handicap compliance requirements. Players who have opted out will have their handicap records removed from the Ordinary Member’s handicap register and the SGA National Handicap Book. The records will be kept in another database throughout the membership term in case activation is required. Also, you will not be eligible to participate in tournaments that require a Handicap Index once you have opted out of the Handicap System.
The Club can issue you an introduction card that will reflect your status as a Social Member who no longer maintains a competitive handicap.
