club from the list of participating clubs, applicants fill out
a brief application and make payment via credit card. The annual
dues for online memberships are $35, and the NGA accepts VISA

post scores, and when to expect to receive your USGA Handicap

Your NGA membership will run through December 31, 2017. In 2018,
you will need to renew your membership.
If you are a member of a private club your
NGA membership is almost always taken care of as part of your
club membership. Your golf club probably bills you once a year
for a "Handicap Service Fee". While providing your USGA/GHIN
handicap index is one of the more obvious things the Nebraska
Golf Association does, it is far from everything the NGA is doing
to make golf better for all of us. For that reason, we hope your
club is billing you for what the fee really is, a membership to
the NGA, one of the benefits of which is your handicap.
you are not a member of a private golf club, you can visit the
nearest public golf course or the one you play the most to establish
your NGA membership. Ask someone behind the counter for information
on how to establish a NGA membership or GHIN number. After filling
out an application and paying the necessary payment, you will
receive a GHIN number (your handicap identification number) and
hence, a membership to the Nebraska Golf Association. You may
now begin posting scores. Once you have posted five scores and
we pass one of the twenty-four revision periods, you will receive
your USGA Handicap Index®.
