Tournament Eligibility

MWGA Tournament Eligibility Policy

  1. All players must be a member of the Missouri Women's Golf Association with the exception of Juniors.
  2. All entrants, with the exception of Juniors, must have a current USGA Handicap/Index from a USGA authorized club.   We strongly suggest coaches contact the USGA and form a “club” (a minimum of 10 players -  See the USGA Handicap System Manual). After a club is formed, USGA Handicap/Indexes must be calculated by an authorized Handicap service.  You may contact the the Missouri Golf Association, the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association, the Kansas City Golf Association, or other commercial services such as Handicomp. Cost varies but is nominal and available. (ALSO - SEE eCLUB)
