The USGA Foundation is the member engagement and fundraising program within the United States Golf Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Established in 2017, the USGA Foundation secures resources to fulfill the USGA’s commitment to invest in programs and solutions that best serve golf for all who love and play it. The Foundation is focused on four impact areas that are essential to the health and future of the game: enhancing the on-course experience for all players, creating a healthier relationship between courses and the environment, celebrating traditions and preparing future leaders.
WHS and GHIN:
The vision to unify the six different handicap systems in use around the world into a single World Handicap System required the commitment of, and collaboration between, many organizations. All of the following organizations have provided their support to this important initiative and played their part in establishing the key principles, which shaped the proposals and drove forward the initiative to the point where a new World Handicap System could be introduced in 2020.
Rules of Golf:
In collaboration with The R&A, the USGA writes, interprets and educates on the four sets of rules that define the game globally.
