Membership

Join the largest community of golfers in Nebraska, with more than 150 member clubs and nearly 23,000 golfers who enjoy the exclusive benefits of NGA Membership.

Getting started is easy, simply click on the Join the NGA button and get your membership activated today for $35 (good for a full year) through our NGA Members Club. You will first be asked if you've ever had a GHIN number. Select either Yes, No, or I don't know (we recommend this option if you're not sure, which allows you to search for your name). Fill out the application and make payment via credit card (NGA accepts VISA and Mastercard). You can also set yourself up for auto-renew, which will be processed a full year from your join date and will make sure you stay active and don't miss out on anything.

For information or questions regarding NGA membership, please contact Sam Oehm at (402) 505-4653, ext. 103 or via email at soehm@nebgolf.org.

Join Directly Through a NGA Member Club

You also have the option of joining the NGA directly through one of our 150+ member clubs. There are two ways to do this. First, several public facilities allow you to activate your NGA membership online through our website. Click the Join Through a Member Club Online option below to see where you can do this. You can also visit one of our member clubs and join in person. Click the Find a Member Club to Join in Person link below to see the full directory of our member clubs. All memberships offer the same benefits.

NOTE: Join Through a NGA Member Club

If you're trying to join in person through a NGA member 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. Make sure you give the club your email address and have them enter it in your profile (this is how we deliver most of your member benefits). You may now begin posting scores. After you post your third 18-hole score, GHIN will calculate your scores overnight and you will have your official World Handicap System Handicap Index® the next day.

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 GHIN number and 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. Make sure you give the club your email address and have them enter it in your GHIN profile (this is how we deliver most of your member benefits).
