GPGC MEMBERSHIP AND RENEWAL INFO


 

 

 

For over 100 years the GPGC has provided one of the best public golf club experiences in the Southland. Our events are staged on our two championship courses, Wilson and Harding, which have been host to professional events like the LA Open and the Special Olympics. As a member-oriented club our goal is to promote a relaxed and inclusive environment where you can enjoy both friendly competition and camaraderie--a place truly worthy of being called your “home" course. 

 

As a member of the GPGC you’ll enjoy:

 

  • Dozens of weekend and weekday tournaments on Wilson and Harding
  • Traveling tournaments to some of the Southland’s best courses 
  • The GPGC Charlie Chaplin Cup
  • Player of the Year year-long competition
  • Member social events
  • Match play events both within our club and against other clubs
  • A new member towel and bag tag
  • GHIN Number
  • SCGA Membership
  • And much more!

 

Membership in the Griffith Park Golf Club automatically includes Southern California Golf Association. Your membership requires renewing annually.

 

All new members establishing or re-establishing will need to wait 1-15 days before they will be recognized by SCGA. You will be mailed a membership card and then be able to post your scores. If you are establishing during this time, save your score cards and forward them to the handicap chairman Dan Graham.

An important function of the Club is to establish a Registered Handicap Index. Your Southern California Golf Association (SCGA) will provide you with a membership card. SCGA cards are issued each year.Your Handicap Index is your relative golfing ability. Your handicap will change depending on the complexity of the course that you play, but your index won't change until the next update. Each course has a "slope rating" and "tee designation" handicap table versus index table for determining your handicap to a whole number at a particular course.


The score you are required to post may differ from the total number of strokes you have played.  You must use the USGA’s current equitable stroke control rules to figure your adjusted score for any given hole (essentially, it is “net double bogey”).

 

In tournament play, the club will post your score, you should not post your score.
