IS YOUR mvga/ghin membership inactive?

To correspond with the ending of the off season and the beginning of the new golf season our MVGA/GHIN Membership 2020 season closed on Sunday, March 14 and the 2021 season began on Monday, March 15.

Just what does that mean?

If you play at a public facility or are a member of a non real estate club like "eClub" and have not already renewed for the upcoming season your account was placed into an "Inactive Status".

To change this status all you need to do is renew at the facility either online or in person.  

If you are a member at a Private Facility the staff manages this for you, therefore, no action is needed.
