How to become a member of the UGA

Welcome to the UGA!  Whether you are an avid golfer, or just picking up clubs for the first time, the UGA is for you.  The UGA offers so many opportunities and benefits for the Utah golfer.  
All UGA members will be assigned a ‘member club’.  This ‘member club’ could be  the golf club you play the most, the one that’s closest to you, or perhaps you are wanting to play in a Men’s or Women’s league. The choice is ultimately yours, and can be changed if circumstances change. 
The easiest way to become a member of the UGA is to sign up right from the home page at www.uga.org.  In the upper lefthand corner, just click “Want To Join the UGA”.  Fill out the information, pick your home club, and payment information.  Its that simple!  Once complete, you will be issued a GHIN# and emailed a digital welcome kit.  You will receive your 2014 UGA membership card in the mail within 2-3 weeks.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact newmember@uga.org
Once you have a GHIN#, you can download the free UGA App on your smartphone.  It’s available in both the Android and iTunes stores.  Search for ‘GHIN Mobile’.  You will just need your GHIN # and last name to sign in.
You can also create an account on www.uga.org and start posting scores, reviewing handicaps, have access to special member offers.  Using your online account is also the easiest way to renew your membership in the years to come. 
Establishing a USGA/UGA Handicap Index requires the member to post at least five 18-hole rounds or 10, 9-hole rounds. Official handicap revisions are issued on the 1st and 15th of each month.
