Handicap Services for St. Louis Chapter

USGA Handicap Services

LPGA Amateur St. Louis Chapter is pleased to offer the USGA GHIN Handicap Services as a benefit to our active paid members. This benefit is provided through the chapter’s partnership with the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association (MAGA) and is an optional service offered at cost to our active members who want to establish and maintain a handicap index.  

To be eligible to use this service, you must be an active paid member of the St. Louis Chapter of LPGA Amateur Golf Association for the current calendar year.   Eligibility check will be done at the time of your USGA GHIN Handicap Services membership to either join or renew. 

USGA GHIN membership is $28 (MAGA Adult Membership of $25 + Transaction Fee of $3).  Please note this membership is non-refundable. 

Process to join / renew is through the MAGA USGA GHIN application.  Please either click on this link or scan the QR code below and follow the instructions.   

Once you complete your application and your credit card has been submitted, an email titled Registration Submitted will be sent to your email address and will indicate your renewal will be in "pending approval" status.  Your credit card will not be charged until the St. Louis Chapter's Handicap Chair approves your membership.   

Approval by the Chapter's Handicap Chair means that you have either joined or renewed your LPGA Amateur membership for the current calendar year with the St. Louis Chapter as your primary chapter and that you are eligible to use the Chapter's USGA GHIN service.  

Once your membership has been approved, you will receive an email titled Renewed Member Confirmation: LPGA Amateur Golf Association - St. Louis Chapter along with a thank-you for joining / renewing with the Chapter’s USGA GHIN Handicap Services.  Keep this email for your record. 

Your Chapter’s USGA GHIN Handicap Service membership will be good through your current membership term.  Membership term is one year after USGA GHIN Handicap Service membership join / renewal date.  Example:  If you joined / renewed on 01/18/24, your membership term will be through 01/17/25.   

You may cancel your membership with the Chapter’s USGA Handicap Services at any time during the calendar year; however, you will not receive a refund of payment for your current membership.  Your membership will continue to the end of your current membership term after which the cancellation will take effect and no further charges will be made.  Your membership will then be inactivated from the Chapter’s USGA GHIN Handicap Services. 

USGA GHIN Handicap Service membership is non-refundable and is good through your membership term.
