When you join/renew your SCGA membership, please consider doing it through the LPGA Amateurs Palm Springs/Desert Cities Chapter which began offering USGA/GHIN handicaps through our chapter in December for the price of $36. when you join/renew your SCGA membership for the price of $36. 

SCGA membership is completely optional but for years many of our chapter members have also joined the SCGA and enjoyed the perks of an SCGA membership.

If you are already an SCGA member through another club, you can add the LPGA Amateurs PS/DC Chapter to your SCGA membership and receive a rebate from SCGA.  For the 2020 membership year, anyone who is a member of the SCGA through more than one club is eligible to apply for and receive a rebate directly from the SCGA for any dues they pay that exceeds $55.
Since the SCGA charges $36 per member club, a member at two clubs receives a $17 rebate and a member at three clubs receives $53.  Click on the link for additional information on the rebate, eligibility and other information. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=WgAN8z-qzkyJEuofbeCv3Tvfi3RczylGlRK1S7dat4ZUQVdBVUdMV0c2VkE3TVNTRDVHVlY3QTVBNC4u
