Club Services: Members Now!

In 2015, the MGA introduced a new Member Service to assist our public, municipal and semi-private facilities in procuring new members and keeping existing members in your system.

The MGA Members Now! Program was developed in response to the growing number of individuals who are looking to obtain an MGA/USGA GHIN number but just don’t know how to do it and need some assistance engaging with our MGA Member Club base.

The program allows golfers to connect with an MGA Member Club directly through the MGA web site (mgalinks.org) at any time. This service is available to golfers and clubs 12 months a year.

There is no cost and no added work to our MGA Member Clubs. We feel that it is important to put our resources forward to assist you in growing your membership base and to make it easier for interested golfers to become active in the sport.

Here is a snapshot of the program!

WHATis the program all about?

The MGA Members Now! program will allow golfers to obtain or renew an MGA/USGA GHIN number with participating MGA Member Clubs directly through the MGA web site (mgalinks.org) at any time. This service will be available to golfers and clubs 12 months a year.

WHOshould take part?

The program is open to any public, semi-private or municipal MGA Member Club or any club that currently offers MGA/USGA GHIN numbers as one of its services.

WHYis this important?

The program was developed in response to the growing number of individuals who are looking to obtain an MGA/USGA GHIN number but just don’t know how to do it and need some assistance engaging with golf clubs in the Bay State. It is also aimed at those individuals whose memberships at clubs have lapsed or who may be thinking about not renewing for the upcoming season.

Other state and regional golf associations have implemented similar programs and have reported great success in getting new golfers into the sport and reducing the number of inactive golfers in their system. It is truly a “grow the game” initiative that is proving to be effective at the grass-roots level.

HOW MUCHwill it cost?

There is no additional cost for the program. Each participating club will determine the fee that they would like to charge a new member to obtain an MGA/USGA GHIN number through their facility. The MGA will process the stipulated payment directly.

No credit card fees, purchasing fees or upcharges will be added to that total. Whatever fee you decide will be the amount billed to the golfer and will be credited on your next billing statement.

WHEREdo I start?

Contact a member of the MGA staff and fill out the ONLINE FORM. Once we receive your information, your club will be added to the program and golfers will be able to become your member immediately!
