Golfers wishing to register for a competition or event must have a Handicap Index® issued by the WPGA and have user credentials on the WPGA Online Player Registration Portal. Please see Registration for more information and instructions.
Renewal of a Handicap Index® as soon as possible is encouraged. Delay in renewal may result in eligibility issues. Early renewal is important if you maintain your Handicap Index® at a club that does not automatically renew. For all WPGA Competitions and Events where a Handicap Index® is required for entry, the following applies: A Handicap Index issued by a WPGA Member Club is required for entry and players without a Handicap Index issued by a club licensed by the WPGA will be directed to an existing WPGA Member Club or an Association-sponsored Type 3 Golf Club. You can renew your Handicap Index® online through the WPGA here.
