REMINDER: TGA/GHIN MEMBER DELETION DEADLINE NEARS
The TGA would like to remind all Member Club GHIN Contacts and Handicap Chairs that the end of February is the deadline for TGA/GHIN Member Deletion.
All golfers no longer wanting to participate in the GHIN service must be inactivated on your club roster no later than 11:59 P.M. (CST) on Sunday, February 28. Your club’s March billing will be based on the number of active GHIN golfers in your GHIN Roster after that date and time.
For those clubs participating in our Online Join Renew (OJR) program, golfers added via OJR have already paid and should be left in your club roster as “active.” The rebated amount (if applicable) will show on your club’s March bill summary.
Lastly, please take this opportunity to make certain all Junior/Minor golfers are coded correctly as “J” type with their Date of Birth and Minors have been linked to Guardian. Juniors/Minors not coded as such by midnight on February 28 will be charged the regular rate.
If you have any questions or need assistance accessing your player rosters, please contact Mary Harrison, Senior Director of Handicapping & Membership, at 1-866-468-8942 ext. 152.
