MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION



CGA members are affiliated with our member golf clubs across the state of Colorado. CGA member golf clubs can include groups or clubs of golfers who have an affiliation through work or other organization, as well as as the traditional green grass facilities Joining a golf club will give you the opportunity to play with a group of people on a regular basis as well as establish one of the major benefits of CGA membership, a USGA Handicap Index. In addition to helping us support and grow this great game in Colorado, members also enjoy green fee and merchandise discounts at the CGA owned CommonGround Golf Course in Aurora.

 


Many of our members don't even realize that they are already a member of the largest golf organiztion in Colorado. Do you have an active GHIN number through a golf club in Colorado? If so, you are already a member of the Colorado Golf Association and are helping us to grow and improve the game in ways you probably haven't imagined! From the Evans Scholarship and Junior Developmental Programs to State Championships and the Rules of Golf, your CGA membership is keeping the game you love the game you love. Thank you for your membership, and click HERE to learn more about us.

To access your benefits of membership, log-in (or create your member profile if necessary) using the 'Member Access' box on the left. REMEMBER to include your active GHIN number in your profile to access your member benefits such as posting a score or checking your Index.

 


If you love the game, and want to benefit from membership while giving back to it, then the Colorado Golf Association is for you! To join the Colorado Golf Association, all you need to do is join one of the CGA's member clubs. Most golfers become members of a men's club that conducts its events at a facility near to their residence, or they inquire about the men's club at a course which they enjoy playing frequently. To join a club near you online CLICK HERE. For those people who are members of a private golf club, joining the CGA is usually a process that is almost always taken care of as a part of your club membership.

When your membership is activated at your member club, you are issued a GHIN number and can begin posting scores to establish an official USGA Handicap Index. Be sure that your club handicap chairman enters your address and email address information in the club's computer, also. This will ensure that you receive all your CGA membership benefits.
