Individual AGA Member Benefits
The Alabama Golf Association provides many benefits to its members at both the individual and club level. Individual Members consist of all members of Member Clubs who are active on the GHIN handicap roster at an AGA Member Club.
- Whether competing in an AGA championship, USGA national championship or an event at your club, participants must have an active Handicap Index. The purpose of the World Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling golfers of different abilities the chance to compete on an equal basis. The AGA uses GHIN, a service of the USGA, to provide handicap services to its members and member clubs. Handicap Index will be revised on the following day after a score is posted throughout the year.
