Supporting our Member Clubs

Healthy member clubs is essential to the growth of the game. To that end WA Golf provides many services to support our member clubs and enhance the individual golfer experience.

Handicapping Resources

Being the Handicap Chairperson at your club is an important role–thank you for stepping up! With your efforts, the handicap system is properly administered and creates a fair and equitable environment for all. We hope you find our Handicap System Resource Guide a valuable tool while administering the USGA Handicap System. Additionally you can access more handicapping information in the USGA Handicapping System Manual.

Tournament Management Software

Member clubs receive access to the cloud-based USGA Tournament Management software powered by Golf Genius to help handle your events, tournaments and leagues and comes loaded with a variety of tournament formats to choose from. The service is available anywhere there’s internet access. Training tools and expert customer service from Golf Genius as well as our staff is available. The base level program is free to member clubs or your club can opt for a premium package for a fee.

Course Rating and Course Measurement Services

Washington Golf provides course measuring and rating services to member and non-member clubs on a periodic basis. The goal of the WA Golf is to rate each member course every 6-7 years. New clubs (those that have been in existence for less than ten years) or clubs that have undergone a renovation will be rated on a more frequent basis. Non-member clubs must be rated every ten years. This is a complimentary service to our member clubs. For non-member courses, there is a fee of $1500 per nine holes plus expenses. More information can be found here.

Please email Nate Schroeder, Director of Handicapping and Course Rating for more information on getting your course rated.

Club Representative Program

Club Representatives serve as a liaison between WA Golf and their club. They are an important communications link—relaying important information about the association and the USGA. Vise-versa, club reps keep us informed about the goings-on at the club-level and of any concerns we should be addressing—we are here to serve you!

Club Representatives receive monthly e-newletters and attend an annual meeting.
