How can I become a member of the Pennsylvania Golf Association?
You can join the Pennsylvania Golf Association by establishing a USGA Handicap Index at a PAGA Member Club. Visit the golf professional at a course near your work or home that is a member of the Pennsylvania Golf Association. To see a list of current PAGA member clubs Click Here.
It is necessary to establish a "home" course so that your handicap revisions can be sent to 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.
What if my home club is not a member of the PAGA?
Starting in 2007 memberships were made 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 12 championships and many tangible items, but most importantly you will be supporting golf in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
