Application: You can join online through our Member Planet affiliate.  Follow the link below for instructions on setting up your account in Member Planet.
Posting Scores: You may post scores from games played before becoming a member as long as you know the course rating, slope, and date played. If you need help to accomplish this, another member, or a member of the golf staff will be more than happy to assist you.
Tournament Play: In order to enter a club tournament an official handicap must be established.  The computer will only provide such a handicap after at least three scores have been successfully transmitted to the USGA's central computer.

Prize money awarded for tournaments is kept in a credit account at Baylands Golf Links and can be used to purchase goods and services in the pro shop.  At some away tournaments a portion of the prize money, by contract, may be in gift certificates at that course.  If you leave the club, you have one year to spend the credit in your account.  If the credit is not used within one year, it will revert to the club treasury.
NCGA Membership: Within three or four weeks of receiving your GHIN number you should receive a Membership Card from the NCGA with that same number on it.  Please be patient since NCGA cards are not issued between Oct. 1 and Jan 20.  If you join between those dates, your card should be mailed to you at the end of January.

Your handicap is available online at the NCGA's website.  You can also sign up with the NCGA and have your handicap information emailed to you on the first and fifteenth days of each month.
