In order to fully take advantage of the active golf season, golfers should have an active Mass Golf/USGA GHIN Handicap Index through one of the 360 Mass Golf clubs.

In addition to contacting your existing club or a club that is close to your home or place of work, golfers can also obtain or renew a Mass Golf/USGA GHIN Handicap Index online through the Members Now! program. This golfer benefit was introduced as a way to help golfers easily connect with Mass Golf clubs and quickly become active so that they can start to post scores and take advantage of the many golfer benefits offered through clubs and Mass Golf.

To date, nearly 50 Mass Golf clubs (public, municipal or semi-private) are part of the program with the following clubs being added in just the past two months.
