USGA Renewals

 Anyone get multiple USGA renewal letters throughout the year. I seem to get them almost quarterly in spite of renewing them yearly. My membership expires the end of this year and I’ve received another renewal letter ......about 4 weeks after I got my hat,bag tag etc. I’m starting to feel like they are trying to scam me into mistakenly sending more money.

I’d chalk it up to automation sending out letters.  I used to get tons of letters even after I renewed.  Because I used to live in the ass end of nowhere, I wasn’t thinking about golf until the hell mouth thawed out, so it would lapse and even after I renewed I would get a couple. I’ll bet that stuff is out sourced so they’ll keep sending sometimes no matter what.

My membership renews in December.  A couple of years ago, I got an “it’s time to renew” notice in July.

 I emailed them that it’s not time to renew in July.  They replied that my account would be updated to send me only a single renewal notice, 60 days before expiration. It’s been fine since then.

I’d suggest emailing them to request they update your account similarly.

There are a few things you should check.

1. Go to Ghin website, Enter your Name and Ghin # to log in.
2. Then use the "Golfer Lookup" menu and search for "All Golfers" with your last name in your state.
If you have multiple players with the last name (your name) it could possibly be you have created additional accounts.
The accounts are very specific to "Exact Names" IE: using middle initial, or having first names like James / Jim or suffix
3. Check paper/payment trail. Did you pay with multiple manners? Credit cards / checking accounts, etc.
4. Sometimes a person will have multiple accounts when they belong to two different clubs.
I've seen friends who belong to a club in Florida and Missouri who will have two separate accounts.
USGA loves these situations, they are receiving fees for each account.

I obtain my Ghin through my club which is run by our Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association
The club renews my membership each year and bills my account.

Another thing you should check is if you have setup "Auto-Renew"
