South Carolina Golf Association Handicap Card
The Upstate Golf Club is an affiliate member club of the South Carolina Golf Association. Because the SCGA's handicap system is a calender year membership, our memberships will be effective from January to January. Once approved, your becoming a member of the Upstate Golf Club also means you would become a member of the prestigious South Carolina Golf Association, and the Carolinas Golf Association. You receive, just for the asking, your own official United States Golf Association handicap card. This opens the door to dozens and dozens of tournaments in South Carolina, North Carolina, and even across the country. From golf at amateur’s highest level, to dozens of One Day events in South Carolina, being a SCGA member is your ticket to all of these events and more. You will be able to post your scores from the Upstate Golf Club website links straight to your own handicap page in the SCGA’s system. If you do not have internet access, you can either mail in your scorecards, or simply drop them off at Eagle Zone or Nevada Bob's Golf. Having a valid handicap through the SCGA is a great way to track real improvement in your game, and for other clubs and people to verify your handicap for tournaments and out of town golf functions. They can simply check your handicap online, or call the Upstate Golf Club staff! Your Upstate Golf Club membership dues of $75 for 2004 includes, as an introductory offer, the fee for your SCGA membership, including handicap card!
Tournaments, tournaments, and more tournaments!
Being an Upstate Golf Club member literally opens the door to more tournaments than anyone can play! From our own events, which will include a Club Championship event later this year, a Member-Member/Guest, the Upstate Am Par 3, the Upstate Mid-Am/Senior event in August, and the Piedmont Classic Team Championship, a two man team tournament each spring. There will also be some one day dogfight/scramble events mixed in as well. In addition, the SCGA membership gets you access to all the SCGA and CGA major championships, as well as the SCGA's One Day events. In 2002, the SCGA held 89 One Day events. EIGHTY-NINE!! Click here to go to the SCGA's tournament page. If this isn't enough, there are USGA national events that the SCGA membership qualifies you for, as well as the convenience of the official handicap card to verify you into many local and out of town events that ask for or require a handicap. More competition makes for a better player, and with the Upstate Golf Club, we've got your ticket to competition!!
Golf Play Days
From time to time, approximately once per month, we will negotiate a special rate and place for our members to go and simply play golf together! The course and date will posted on the web site, along with the number of available tee times. If you want to play, simply send us an email or call to reserve your spot. We will have some sort of skins game or fun competition for anyone who wishes to participate that won't interfere with their round. You will also be able to request parings with your friends. Members will also be allowed guests, but not at the special rate. But, getting them to join will earn the special rate, plus earn the member new member referral points, good towards gifts and even next year's membership! Play Days will also be an excellent way for members to meet and get to know other golfers, and build great relationships around the Upstate.
Great Discounts at Great Golf Courses
The Upstate Golf Club has negotiated discounts off regular green fee prices at six area clubs. As our membership grows and expands, we will be adding more courses in the future. The discount may vary slightly from course to course, but the discount is an average of 15-25% off regular green fee. Some courses require a cart rental. The participating courses as of May 1 are Carolina Springs Country Club, Crosswinds Golf Course, Furman University Golf Course, Greer Golf & Country Club, River Falls Country Club, and Southern Oaks Golf Club. Just one round a month at any of these great golf courses, along with your SCGA handicap card will more than pay for your $75 annual membership fee!!
