Casual Golfer Program
A membership option offered by the AGA in partnership with facility based golf clubs that choose to offer a limited benefit or “Handicap Only” membership in their club. Golfers are matched with participating golf clubs nearest their entered zip code.
AZ Golf Club
If you don’t consistently play at one course or just want to track your Handicap, join the AGA’s online club to get your Official Handicap Index and other member benefits. The AZ Golf Club membership is valid a full year and will renew 365 days from purchase.
Start Your Own Club
In order to establish your own Associate Club (also known as a club without real estate) and issue USGA Handicaps, you must meet the USGA’s definition of a club:
- Must have at least 10 members who have a regular opportunity to play golf together. This means that you need to have at least nine other golfers that you have a reasonable and regular opportunity to play golf with in order to start your own club. Several of our current Associate Clubs are made up of people from the same workplace, church, or neighborhood.
- Must operate under bylaws with committees. These bylaws explain the structure of the group and guidelines to follow. Also, your club will need to form a Handicap Committee and elect officers and a Handicap Chairperson. The Handicap Chairperson is usually an individual who has access to a computer and is in charge of collecting the membership dues. The duties of the Handicap Committee are outlined in the USGA Handicap System Manual.
- Must make peer review available to the members. Once the group is established it is important that peer review is available. Peer review means that club members have the ability to review the scores and Handicap Indexes of fellow members.
