If you received a renewal notice after you sent in your renewal payment, it is possible that your payment and the renewal reminder crossed in the mail. If you have received more than one renewal reminder after you have mailed in your payment, please contact the USGA Members Program Customer Service Department at 800-223-0041 or send us an email by clicking on Email Us to verify whether we received your payment.

The renewal process begins five months before your membership expires. Five notices are sent out --5 months prior to expiration, 3 months prior to expiration, during the expiration week, 1 month after expiration, and 3 months after expiration. Members are encouraged to renew on the earliest possible notice. Renewing early guarantees that there will be no interruption in the delivery of your membership benefits. Once payment is received, your record is updated and no additional notices will be sent.

In an effort to attract new supporters, the USGA solicits prospective Members through the mail. We obtain names from a variety of golf-related mailing lists. The names on the list are checked against our current membership records to avoid sending invitations to our current supporters. We make every effort to avoid duplication, but this method is not always foolproof. If the name or address on the list is slightly different than the name or address on our membership files, we will send out a solicitation.

Please return the unwanted solicitation in the postage paid envelope provided in the mailing and write "Already a Member" somewhere on the form or email us at membership@usga.org and give the number in the highlighted box. We will make a note of the name and address so that it is removed from future mailings.

The USGA and Chevron have committed to using the game of golf to encourage students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. This commitment has led to the creation of extensive golf-focused STEM teaching tools, and has resulted in charitable contributions to support golf-related programs through Eagles for Education™

At U.S. Open Championships the Chevron STEM ZONE™ is an interactive experience highlighting the science and math behind the game of golf through a variety of hands-on exhibits and experiments.

The partnership has also produced educational materials such as the Science of Golf video series and a nationally-distributed newspaper insert which are provided to teachers as tools to enhance existing curriculum in schools. These lessons teach the science behind the USGA’s equipment testing, handicapping, and agronomy efforts.
