It’s Not Too Late: Renew Or Obtain a Handicap Index Today Through Members Now! & You’ll Receive a special Bonus

for immediate release: October 5, 2018

NORTON, Massachusetts – We’ve been hearing that too many golfers are reporting that they didn’t get a chance to play as much golf as they wanted this past season. Since there is nothing better than playing a round of golf – especially during the peak fall months – Mass Golf is working with more than 45 Member Clubs to offer golfers the chance to renew today online through MassGolf.org and remain active through the 2019 season.

ONLINE: ABOUT MEMBERS NOW! | PARTICIPATING CLUBS | GOLFER BENEFITS

Through the Members Now! program and beginning during the month of October, golfers will enjoy up to three bonus months of active status for their Mass Golf/USGA GHIN Handicap index. What that means is that if you renew today, your Mass Golf/USGA GHIN Handicap index will remain active until December 31, 2019.

To take advantage of this opportunity, golfers that currently have an inactive handicap index simply need to renew online at MassGolf.org through one of our Members Now! clubs. This bonus sign-up opportunity is only available for Members Now participating clubs (click here for a list). If you would like to renew at your previous club or any other club, we encourage you to contact them directly about available 2019 packages.

Scroll down for step-by-step directions on how to renew (either online or directly through a club) so that you can begin posting scores and taking advantage of all of your Mass Golf benefits now and through the end of 2019.

If you have any questions now or throughout the season, just contact Mike Wice at mwice@massgolf.org or 774-430-9072.

How Do I Renew?

Whether you are a golfer who recently had an index through one of our Member Clubs or a golfer looking to set one up for the first time, you have two options to renew:

1) Contact your previous club or a club near you directly

2) Renew online through one of 47 clubs that offer renewals through the Members Now! program

Contact a Club

If you would like to return to your most recent club or connect with a club near your place of residence or work, you can contact the pro shop and ask them to reactivate your Mass Golf/USGA GHIN Handicap Index.
