Spokane/Inland Northwest Chapter


The purpose of the USGA Handicap system is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. Having a handicap index allows golfers to:

  • Participate in more events (those that require a handicap index).
  • Have a measurable means of tracking improvement.
  • Allow score adjustments to even the playing field when playing with golfers of different skill levels.


Wondering why you can’t get into GN21 to log your spring scores?  If you have not logged into the new website / platform for the LPGA Amateur Golf Association  please do in order to access information and GN21 for posting scores. 

All LPGA Amateurs Spokane Inland NW members have the opportunity to obtain a handicap index through GN21 at no additional cost. Golfers keeping score are strongly encouraged to obtain a Handicap Index by taking advantage of a key LPGA Amateur Spokane Inland NW member benefit. This system is available via the LPGA Amateur Golf Association members-only area (after logging in, you'll see a link to the "Handicap" area along the left side).  Powered by GolfNet, GN21 is a full featured system that enables all members to obtain an official USGA handicap.  This Member benefit is available for the 2019 Season - good thru December 31, 2019
