What is Club Finder?

The SCGA Club Finder serves three major purposes:

  • Finds new members for your club
  • Promotes your events to non-members
  • Allows the SCGA to help you market your golf club in your local golf community

Visit clubfinder.scga.org to see if your club is listed. Then click one of the links below for more information:

I found my club! I didn’t find my club!

How does the Club Finder work?


If your club is listed...

How do I update or improve my listing?

PLEASE CONTACT US if any information needs to be added or updated.

Please note: The SCGA developed a web portal (accessible through scga.org) where you can edit your club information, events and email your members. The platform will be available in June.

My club’s location is incorrect. How do I change it?

PLEASE CONTACT US if you wish to change your club’s address.

Please note: We are using the address that we have on file for your club. This may be the address of your home course, one of your club’s officers, or another address selected by your club.

If you are a type 2 or afilliate golf club we recommend:

  • The facility where your club plays most often
  • A central point in your region or county

How do I get my club’s events listed?

EMAIL US YOUR SCHEDULE. Events help people find when and where your club plays, leading to new members. Get them listed!

Please note: The SCGA developed a web portal (accessible through scga.org) where you can edit your club information, events and email your members. The platform will be available in June.

Should my members use the Club Finder to renew?

No, we recommend sending your members directly to your online join/renew portal (if applicable). They can also find your club information or renewal portal by going to scga.org/renew.

How do I get my club featured on the home page of Club Finder?

If you’d like to have a video of your club featured on the Club Finder homepage, email us your club story, why you think you should be featured, and date/time/location of the event you where you want the video captured.


If your club is not listed...

How do I get my club on Club Finder?

Add your club, which must be open to new members, in 2 easy steps:

STEP 1: Sign up for the SCGA Online Join/Renew Portal.

STEP 2: Fill out the Club Information Form.

These 2 items ensure that prospective members can find accurate data about your club and sign up instantly online.

I don’t want my club on Club Finder. How do my members find my contact info if they use the platform?

When an individual searches for your club directly through the platform and doesn’t find it, he/she will be prompted to find your unlisted club HERE.


Other FAQs

How does the SCGA define Popular, Travel, and Social clubs?

You may have noticed on the Club Finder homepage suggested search options for “Popular Clubs,” “Travel Clubs” and “Social Clubs.” Here is how we define each of these parameters:

  • Popular clubs have the most members
  • Social clubs host non-competitive events and hold events focused on fun/social aspects of the game (as opposed to competition)
  • Travel clubs generally do not have a home course and therefore play multiple courses in their region

I have a good idea for an improvement to the Club Finder. Who do I contact?

We’re always looking for feedback on how we can improve the experience for our clubs and users. If you have any suggestions on how we can achieve this, please contact us HERE.

Your Membership Also Supports

The mission of the SCGA Junior Foundation is to engage under-served youth in the lifelong benefits of golf so that they can achieve their dreams and potential. Through its programs, SCGA Junior works to fulfill its mission by achieving the following goals:

  • Creating affordable access to golf for all youth
  • Teaching smart decision-making skills both on and off the course
  • Developing a culture of healthy lifestyles

The SCGA Junior Golf Foundation was founded in 1983 through a gift from the PGA Championship, which was played at Riviera Country Club. It is the charitable arm of the Southern California Golf Association, which is one of the nation’s oldest and largest amateur golf associations. The SCGA underwrites all administrative and development expenses, allowing every dollar raised to go directly to our youth serving programs.

General Golf Advocacy

The SCGA actively advocates on policy issues relevant to the organization by engaging responsibly with governmental officials, local and regional conservation groups and local and regional public commissions and committees.
