SGA Golf Club offers official handicaps on GOLF Link for $95

On January 1 2015, SGA officially launched The SGA Golf Club as a new national handicap provider under the SGA brand. Official golf handicaps through Bushranger Golf (BRG), which is owned by Social Golf Australia (SGA), were originally offered in 2007 through the Golf Access Australia (GAA) programme which was a joint initiative of Golf Australia, its Member States and the Australian Sports Commission to increase participation in golf and provide a pathway to golf club membership throughout Australia.

 In 2012 the handicapping landscape changed with the rollback of the GAA program and, at the suggestion of Golf Australia, BRG shifted affiliation to Golf Victoria via the Victorian Golf League (VGL). As a bona fide VGL Member club, some of the GAA conditions no longer applied but annual affiliation fee increases mean handicaps through BRG have risen to $110.

To counter this, The SGA Golf Club launched in January 2015 offering official golf handicaps (with insurance) for $95 for 12 months. We aim to offer a streamlined, efficient and cost-effective process for Australian golfers to access and maintain an official golf handicap. Golfers around Australia can access an official golf handicap in just three easy steps:

1. Complete the SGA Golf Club Online Handicap Application
2. Submit three (or more) signed scorecards OR your previous GOLF Link number
3. Make the $95 annual payment to Social Golf Australia
