How Do I Get A Handicap?

To establish a handicap index, you must enter a minimum of 5 scores, either full 18-hole rounds or combined 9-hole scores. You must play your best round possible and post every acceptable round played (according to USGA rules).

EWGA members have two options for establishing and tracking a handicap index.

Option 1:

USGA GHIN Handicap System. Your EWGA chapter provides access to the USGA GHIN Handicap System for an annual fee of $18. 

Scores can be posted at many golf course or online. To obtain a GHIN index through the chapter, use our easy online registration and payment system.

(Or you can still fill out and mail in the Chapter Handicap SIgnup Form with a check.)

For general information on the USGA Handicap system visit www.usga.org and click on handicaps, or visit www.ghin.com.


Option 2:

GolfNet 21 (GN21). This service is included in every EWGA member's annual membership fee.

GN21 is best suited for members who primarily take advantage of EWGA competitive opportunities.
