Club Education & Authorization Requirement for 2020

All clubs throughout the country must complete the Club Education and Authorization Requirements by June 30, 2020.

This requirement has two parts:
1. Attend an education seminar on the Rules of Handicapping, and
2. Take and pass an open book 20-question online quiz on the Rules of Handicapping (16 of 20 correct answers is passing).

Clubs that attended a WHS seminar conducted by the AGA in December has met requirement number one. USGA plans to offer an online education seminar that can be viewed at your discretion in the coming weeks to satisfy this requirement and we will communicate when available.

The quiz link is available HERE. AGA will be in contact with all member clubs to ensure these requirements are met by the June 30 deadline.

Failure to meet these requirements will result in the USGA revoking your club’s access to the central handicap computation system.
