Columbus Chapter
Handicap

Columbus Chapter GHIN Handicap.  In addition to the LPGA Amateurs (powered by GolfNet) handicap included with your membership, the Columbus Chapter is able to offer the GHIN handicap service to our members through our club for an annual fee ($26 per year for 2020).

Members who already have a GHIN handicap through a different club have the option to move their GHIN to our Columbus Chapter Club. 

Our members who have an active GHIN handicap through our chapter have the opportunity to play in a variety of great women's golf events sponsored by the Columbus District Golf Association (CDGA).   In addition, we have the opportunity to field a competitive team to represent the Columbus LPGA Amateurs against other area women's golf clubs in the CDGA.

Why Do I Need A Golf Handicap?
A golf handicap makes it possible for fair competition between players of different ability whether it’s in competitive matches, a friendly wager between friends, or a skins game with money on the line just like the Pros! To put it simply, handicaps are equalizers.

If you get invited to play in a company or charity golf tournament, they will likely want to know your handicap in order to make the event fair for everyone. By having a handicap, you can be paired properly.

For any of you who plan on playing courses abroad, a handicap index may be required. There are many courses that will not let you have a tee time without a verifiable handicap.

Now many of you may be thinking, “But, I don’t play in tournaments so why should I establish a handicap”. Keeping a handicap is a great way to track your improvement throughout the season. As you improve, you can expect to see your handicap gradually go down. You can even use your handicap posting service to track your game statistics like number of putts, fairways hit in regulation, greens hit in regulation, etc. which will give you valuable information on areas where you might need to focus your learning and practice.
