Lake Erie eClub
Last Updated: Fri, 01 May 2020 13:02:04 +0500
I’m happy to announce that for 2020 we have an “eClub” for registering GHIN accounts within Erie and Meadville counties. You don’t have to be a member at a club, or join another online “club” to get an official GHIN account. You can do so by paying me (Erik J. Barzeski) directly or by joining the eClub yourself online and paying WPGA directly. And remember, junior golfers are free.
A GHIN handicap index is a great way to track your progress in the game and is required to enter a number of amateur events.
You can download the GHIN app (for iOS or Android) and enter your scores (and stats if you wish) the same day you play. If you forget your GHIN #, just ask me, but please begin using the application. It will provide some great information to you and allow you to track your progress in the game. (Note that your handicap may seem lower at first until you enter about eight scores in, as newer handicaps are given a -1 or -2 deduction at first. Eventually, your best 8 of your most recent 20 scores count.)
If you need to register for the Lake Erie eClub, you can do so here: Join the Lake Erie eClub.
The WPGA (West Penn Golf Association) has an informative page here: WHS (World Handicap System) Hub and an FAQ page here: WHS FAQ.
You can also enter your scores online at this kiosk URL: Lake Erie eClub GHIN Kiosk.
Any Other Questions?
If you have questions — any questions at all — please don’t hesitate to reach out to ask. I’m happy to do my best to answer questions about the junior events you (or your golfer) can play in, for example, though as a general rule I encourage them to play in as many events as they can (while still providing some balance in week-to-week life) so they get used to putting their name up next to a number.
