World Handicap System

The Hong Kong Golf Association (HKGA) has launched the new World Handicap System (WHS) in January 2020. The WHS was developed by the USGA and R&A and will provide golfers with a unified and consistent measure of playing ability, with handicaps calculated the same way wherever they are in the world.

New Slope Rating Tables

With the new WHS the KSC Slope Rating Tables have been updated by the HKGA and are available under the golf section on our website at www.kscgolf.org.hk, on notice boards at the Golf Course and at the starting tees of each golf course. Please refer to these tables to determine the correct handicap for the course and tees you are playing from.

Monthly Handicaps

As handicaps through the new GHIN system will show daily updates, you should only use the handicap listed as of the 1st day of each calendar month when playing within that month. This is a decision made by the HKGA whereby all clubs and courses in Hong Kong should follow.

Further information on the new WHS can be found at the WHS website www.whs.com and the handicapping section of the HKGA website www.hkga.com.

Golf Bag Trolley Service between KSC Sai Kung Pier and Car Park

Patrons are reminded that the complimentary golf bag trolley service is provided exclusively for use between the Golf Course Pier and Car Park in Sai Kung. Under no circumstances should trolleys be used for any other purpose whatsoever.

Patrons leaving trolleys in the Sai Kung town area leads to significant loss and theft of trolleys. The Golf Course is also facing increasing numbers of complaints from the general public on the nuisance caused by trolleys left in public areas.

To ensure the continued provision of the trolley service it is important that patrons use the service as intended between the Golf Course Pier and Car Park.
