Club Membership Overview
The USGA is the game's governing body, dedicated to serving all golfers. The association is proud to include more than 8,000 country clubs, public, daily-fee and municipal golf courses, qualified practice facilities and clubs without real estate as member clubs because they have the same mission -- serving all the men, women and children who play and love golf.
A USGA club membership supports the work of the USGA and provides information and materials to enhance your golf program. To be eligible for USGA Club Membership you must fit into one of three distinct categories: Golf Course, Club Without Real Estate, or Training Facility. New members must also agree to provisions of the USGA By-Laws.
To become a USGA Member Club, please contact USGA Member Club Customer Service at 800-246-7967 Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. ET. Any current USGA Member Club that wants to Renew its Membership can complete the process online.
