Extremely easy to set up your own club.
Form Your Own Club
Have Your Club Join the SCGA
To form a new club, return a completed membership application to the SCGA office, along with a copy of the club's bylaws (sample set of bylaws) and a signed membership statement. The SCGA will not accept any club using the word "association" in its name. When naming your club, please check with our office before making any final decisions.
Once the proper paperwork has been received and reviewed by the handicap and membership department, an orientation meeting will be scheduled. These meetings are held monthly at the SCGA headquarters to review information about handicap procedures and policies, tournament information and details about SCGA club membership.
A minimum of 10 new member applications must be submitted before the club can be approved for SCGA membership. Applications can be obtained at the orientation. Upon completion of these steps, the SCGA Membership Committee will meet to recommend the club be admitted into the SCGA.
Please submit all items to the SCGA Handicap and Membership Department, 3740 Cahuenga Blvd., Studio City, CA 91604.
Short Course Program
The SCGA Short Course Program is an opportunity for golf courses measuring less than 3,000 yards for 18 holes, or 1,500 yards for nine holes, to obtain an official short course rating and handicap system. The program is provided complimentary by SCGA and allows local handicap calculation for members of the club.
Please contact the club services department for more information.
