If the club provides handicaps to less than 225 members, the cost is $225. If the club provides handicaps to more than 350 Members, the cost is $350. If your club has more than 200 members, but less than 350 members the club is charged on a per member basis. ($1 per member)
You can join the Pennsylvania Golf Association by establishing a USGA Handicap Index at a PGA Member Club. Visit the golf professional at a course near where you work or live and is a member of the Pennsylvania Golf Association. It is necessary to establish a "home" course so that your handicap revisions can be sent top that facility for you. You can still play and post your scores wherever you want, but your handicap records will be maintained at your "home" club. Your golf professional can help you establish a handicap and start posting your scores.
Started in 2007, memberships are available for those individuals who wish to compete in Pennsylvania's State Championships and are residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. By joining the Pennsylvania Golf Association as an individual, you will receive access to our 11 championships and many tangible items, but most importantly you will be supporting golf in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
