VGA HANDICAP SYSTEM
Even Playing Field For All
Golf is the one sport that allows disabled individuals to compete against able bodied athletes through the handicapping system. The VGA has partnered with Golf Net to provide official USGA handicaps to all VGA members. The significance of this partnership is to help reduce the financial burden of the game of golf on veterans around the world.
Currently, individuals have to purchase memberships at local golf courses to be eligible for an official USGA handicap. Many veterans and their family members cannot afford expensive memberships to extravagant clubs. The VGA, therefore, is able to offer a handicapping service to its members at a significantly cheaper cost.
