Become a USGA Member

Members help fund programs and initiatives that step up to both the challenges and opportunities facing golf and its future. Join us today as we:

  • Unify the golf community by connecting with those who love the game.
  • Showcase the best by setting the competitive standard for elite players at every level.
  • Govern the game with an unbiased perspective through a set of modern and clearly defined rules and standards that promote competitive balance and skill.
  • Advance the game by investing in the long-term sustainability of golf courses, building a junior and amateur development pipeline, and fostering a more welcoming and inclusive game.

With the support of our members, we are investing in developing innovations to keep the game environmentally and financially stable while ensuring the golfer experience remains positive. We are also committed to enhancing the amateur game so it continues to provide an open opportunity for golfers to achieve greatness and inspire others. The USGA also celebrates and preserves the game’s remarkable and rich history through its extensive collections and programming at the USGA Golf Museum and Library.  Finally, membership is helping make golf more welcoming through creating opportunities for all who want to play the game.

Membership FAQs

When will I receive my benefits?

Your member benefits packages will be mailed within four to six weeks after your membership payment is received. For membership giving levels of Champion Club or higher the USGA Championship Calendar is shipped in the fall for the coming year’s championship season.

Why am I still getting renewal notices after I already renewed?

Many of our mailings are prepared in advance, and some members receive a notice after they have already sent in their renewal. If you have already renewed your membership, please disregard the notice. If you continue to receive notices, please contact our customer service department at 800-223-0041 to verify that we received your renewal. They will be happy to research the issue and get back to you promptly.

What is the difference between 'Individual' and 'Dual' memberships?

A dual membership covers two individual members within the same household. The member benefit package for both members ships to a single address. Purchasing a dual membership is less expensive than two individual memberships.

Is a Handicap Index® part of my membership?

A Handicap Index® is not a benefit of USGA Membership. Handicap Indexes are issued by private or public golf clubs and authorized golf associations. To get a Handicap Index please visit
