3. Start Your Own Club

Do you have friends that you play with frequently at different courses. Perhaps your company or group of playing partners would like to be recognized as a club and keep GHIN Handicaps. Please let us know if you have an interest in this opportunity and we can provide more details on how to get started. A club would need to be formed with a minimum of 20 golfers to meet the general requirements with USGA Licensing.

Masters Club


The Masters Club has been formed as an additional membership option for golfers to have an opportunity to establish a USGA handicap index using the GHIN handicap computation service and eligbility to play in MGA State Championships.

One unique feature of the GHIN handicap computation service is the eRevision. Your USGA Handicap Index information will be e-mailed to you automatically every revision! In addition to your USGA Handicap Index, the eRevision contains other valuable information such as your handicap scoring record, Handicap Index History, and Association News. The eRevision also contains a convenient printable copy of your handicap card that you can cut out and use to verify your Handicap Index. Masters Club Members will receive a handicap label upon request. Please click here to update your email address with the GHIN Service.

Championship Eligibility


Participants in Mississippi Golf Association State Championships are required to have an established GHIN handicap index at a Mississippi Member Club to meet the eligibility requirements of our championships. If a participant's home club is not a Mississippi Member Club using the MGA GHIN Service, he or she will have to join the MGA as Masters Club Member. All active golfers on the Mississippi GHIN Service are individual members of the association and will receive emails, eligibility to participate in our championships, and other selected membership amenities.
