USGA Handicap Program

WGANJ encourages members to establish a USGA handicap index. A handicap index enables you to track improvements in your golf game and compete in events with players of different abilities. 

How Do I know if I'm ready to establish my USGA Handicap Index?

  • Are you counting every stroke and penalty?
  • Do you plan to track your progress and game growth?
  • Are you ready to follow tournament rules in competitions?
  • Are you planning to participate in competitions during this season?

How Do I Sign Up And Begin To Establish My USGA Handicap Index?

It’s Easy – just follow these simple steps!

  • Complete the USGA/GHIN registration. Last day to register is August 15, 2019.
  • Handicap Registration is NOT available for beginners or Advanced Beginners.
  • If this is a first time registration you will be informed of your GHIN # and instructions on how to post scores. If this is a renewal, your same GHIN will be activated.
  • Play golf and enter scores via the Internet or at any golf course that provides USGA handicap input.
  • Sign up on the GHIN website to receive email notifications at revision periods (usually every two weeks) of changes to your Handicap Index.
  • Use your Handicap Index when playing in golfing events and to track your improvement.
  • Win Prizes in WGANJ events!
