Meaning, you play 5 rounds of 18 holes in Sg only? Can we submit Malaysia or Bintan scorecard?

Maybe check with whoever will maintain your hcp but generally Malaysia or Indonesia courses are ok along with SG courses if they have a USGA course and slope rating. So somewhere like Green Fairways may not count.
I have just handed in my 5 cards with SGA which included courses from all three countries and they are ok with them.

For those who played in Kukup, I heard that their course and slope rating are not approved. Is this true?

5 scorecards is required, because the USGA handicap is computed based on a minimum of 5 scores (the lowest multiply .96)... it's not for maintenance, but for first creation.

Golf Kaki is good plus you get to play OCC at low price.. Easy submission of score card by internet.. But you will need to be a Union member to join.

SGA did not ask for receipts and they did not mention it when I spoke with them.
