To become a member of the Louisiana Golf Association (LGA) through our online portal, click the button below and follow the prompts to complete the registration process.

Join/Renew through a LGA Member Club

To become a member of the Louisiana Golf Association (LGA), you can join/renew through an LGA Member Club. These clubs can be private, semi-private, public, or resort golf courses. To find a club near you, click on the link provided.

Once you have identified a club in your area, you can become an LGA member by either calling or visiting the club in person. Request to be set up with an LGA membership and a “GHIN Number,” and the club will guide you through the process. The entire process can be completed in a matter of minutes over the phone.

After becoming a member, you will need to play at a course with a USGA Course Rating™ and Slope Rating®, and then post your scores. Once you have posted 54 holes of adjusted gross scores (9 or 18-hole rounds), the club will issue you an authorized Handicap Index on the subsequent day.

It’s important to note that an adjusted gross score is a player’s gross score adjusted under the World Handicap System’s Rules of Handicapping procedures for unfinished holes, conceded strokes, holes not played, or not played under the Rules of Golf; so it is important to play by the rules and record all of scores accurately.
