GHIN HANDICAP INDEX

charge is $25 per player
Junior Golfers ages 10-18 FREE

The MGA encourages you to obtain your handicap at  your home course if you have one. If not, you can obtain a handicap through the MGA eClub.

Missouri Golf Association eClub

The Missouri Golf Association eClub was established to provide golfers an opportunity to obtain a USGA handicap index when they do not have access to a home club. Using eClub you can track your own play and find other players to play a round of golf with.

The Purpose of a USGA Handicap Index

The thought process behind requiring juniors ages 10-18 to have a GHIN Handicap Index is to encourage the juniors to get an idea of what they need to do to improve their golf game.  The Handicap system will not only allow the juniors to establish a portable handicap index recognized world wide but will provide them with the tools needed to track their game and each individual phase of their game.  Every player has areas they feel need improvement, but often the information used to determine that is based on how they played the last time out, rather than a trend based on the empirical tracking of their game.

The utilization of the tools provided in this program will help in pinpointing the problem areas of their game and allow them to work more efficiently and effectively on their game.   The program will have a mobile application so it can be accessed via the internet or their smart phones.  Juniors will be able to utilize the normal electronic tools they are masters at to help them track and improve their golf skill sets.

For even more information on WHY a Golf Handicap is important you can visit the USGA website.
