Member Days Lottery - MASSGOLF


Registration for Member Days is done through an online lottery system. Interested participants are able to enter the lottery for one or multiple Member Days from the time the lotteries open (Tuesday, March 5th at 10:00 AM) until the lottery close date, which is different for each Member Day. The lottery close date for each Member Day is 6 weeks before the date of the event.

Step 1: Make Sure Your Mass Golf Membership and Handicap Index® is Active

The only requirement to participate in a Member Day event is that one must have an active Mass Golf Membership (an active Handicap Index® affiliated with a Mass Golf Member Club). Obtaining a Mass Golf Membership is quick and easy. Check out our individual membership page for more details.

Step 2: View the Member Day Schedule

Visit the Member Day homepage on the Mass Golf website. Here you will find the schedule of Member Days with detailed information about each event, a link to access the lottery entry page, as well as further information and FAQ’s about Member Days.

Step 3: Enter Lottery

1) Go to the Member Day lottery entry page HERE.

2) Enter your GHIN number in the box provided, and click “CONTINUE.”

3) Here you will see the list of Member Days with the date, course, and start time for each. In the “Spots Requested” column on the left, you will see an empty box next to each Member Day (pictured below). Use this to select the number of spots (anywhere from 1 to 4, including yourself) that you would like to enter that lottery for, either by using the arrows in the empty box or by simply typing the number of spots you are entering for.

4) To complete your lottery entries, click the “SUBMIT” button at the bottom of the page. Once you do that, you will be officially entered into the lottery for those event(s). Your lottery entries will be displayed on the screen.

Step 4: Register & Submit Payment

If your name was randomly drawn in the lottery, you will receive an email notifying you that you were a winner. In that case, if you still wish to participate, you have 48 hours from the time you received the notification email to complete registration and pay for the event. Failure in doing this will result in you losing your spot in the event and being placed at the bottom of the waiting list.

If you reserved more than one spot, you must input the GHIN numbers for the other players you would like to play with. Please check back for further registration details.

Player information, starting time and host facility information will be emailed directly to participants in the days prior to the Member Day event date.

Should you have any other questions from start to finish, don’t hesitate to contact Kyle Sherman.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • The number of spots you enter a lottery for includes yourself. For example, if you select 4 spots, that would entail yourself and three other players.
  • Entering a lottery DOES NOT guarantee you a spot in the event itself – participants will be determined via the random lottery process.
  • If you win the spot(s) you entered for in a lottery, and you wish to participate in the event, all players you register and pay for at that time must be Mass Golf Members.
  • Each lottery will close for entry and begin processing on its corresponding “Lottery Closes” date 6 weeks out from the event date itself. Keep in mind that each lottery may take up to a few weeks to complete processing.
  • Those who are not initially drawn in the lottery WILL NOT receive a notification. Those players are automatically put on the waitlist for that event, but can still receive a lottery winner notification later on, as each lottery may take up to a few weeks to complete processing. Keep on top of your emails!
  • You can view the lotteries you have entered by going back into the lottery entry page HERE and entering your GHIN number. The “Spots Requested” column on the left will display the number of spots you entered for in any lotteries you have already entered.
  • Due to the overwhelming popularity of Member Days, Mass Golf modified the lottery system to provide opportunities for as many individual members as possible to play in at least one event this season. Preference in each individual lottery will be given to members who have not yet played in a Member Day this season (2024).  As the season progresses, members who have not played in a Member Day so far will see their chances increase. If the field for an event is not filled by first-time 2024 players, invites will then be sent to past 2024 Member Day participants, in the order in which they were randomly selected in the lottery.
