The AGA includes two types of members: Member Clubs and Individual Members.
A Member Club is a “golf club,” incorporated or not, that is made up of residents of Alabama. The club must be an organization of at least 10 individual members that operates under by-laws, with committees appointed to supervise golf activities and to maintain the integrity of the USGA Handicap System. The club’s members must have a reasonable and regular opportunity to play golf with each other and be able to return scores or scorecards for posting. An organization of amateur golfers at a public golf course is considered a “golf club,” provided that it satisfies these same conditions. A Member Club must also provide to its individual members the handicap service offered by the AGA.
Individual Members consist of all members of Member Clubs who are active on the roster of the handicap service provided by the Member Club.
How to Join the AGA
Visit the golf professional at an AGA Member Club/Course where you most likely would play most of your golf and indicate your interest in joining the AGA and establishing a USGA Handicap Index. This would be your home course where your records are kept , but you can still play and post your scores wherever you want.
