Club Membership

Golf Courses and Clubs in the State of Mississippi are encouraged to join the Mississippi Golf Association as a member club. The many benefits of club membership include the following:

  • Access to the the USGA developed Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN): the largest handicap system in the nation, used by over 10,000 clubs and two million golfers.  Members can also sign up to have their monthly handicap revision sent by email.  On the first and fifteenth of every month, golfers will be sent an email that includes their Updated Handicap Index, scoring history and Association New.  Additionally, with the GHIN Handicap System clubs may use the Tournament Pairing Program (TPP) to assist in Tournament Administration. The TPP Program allows the user to create pairings, flights, print scorecards, etc. with ease.
