To sign up for a USA based Scratch Players Golf Club (SPGC or League) for the current membership year, or any future year, please submit the following form.  For clarification, membership in any subsidiary golf club of the Scratch Players Group (SPG) does not mean one would also be a member of the SPG.  Click the Application link to the left for those seeking to join the SPG.



There are over 140 golf associations (GA’s) in the USA affiliated with the USGA that are authorized to administer Handicap Indexes for their affiliated club members.  Of those, about 52 are the ones primarily involved in conducting men’s state amateur championships in their state. 

The SPG will only form clubs affiliated with such GA’s and among those, only the GA’s that allow "landless", affiliated or associate clubs.


In cases where a particular SPGC club is sought that does not currently exist, we accommulate a list of players until a minimum number of such players is met to form such club.  When there are enough players to form a SPGC with a particular GA, all such players will be notified to forward their first year dues to the SPG.
