Most Improved Golfer

Becoming a Most Improved Golfer is an amazing feat!  Aside from having an established handicap and being an active member of your group you must steadily drop your handicap

Each year WNHGA recognizes a golfer from each member club, each regional area, and the overall membership as the Most Improved Golfer (MIG). A certificate is provided for each captain to complete and award to the winning golfer at each club. At the Spring Area Meetings, WNHGA also gives a framed certificate to the members with the highest improvement ratio in each of the four regional areas. The golfer with the highest overall improvement ratio in the entire membership receives a plaque. The four winners’ photos and names will be posted on at

The period of performance for the Most Improved Golfer starts on January 1 and ends on December 1 of the current year. Each club’s Most Improved Golfer should be verified by each handicapper and captain using the following guidelines:

  • The recipient must have a 20-game index as of January 1st of the current year. 
  • The recipient must have played at least 20 games during the period from January 1 through December 1 of the current year.
  • The recipient must be an active, participating member of a nine-hole organization. The criteria for this requirement are decided by each member club.

The WNHGA MIG form will be mailed and/or emailed to each captain and handicapper in November of the current year. 

Information on how to calculate The Most Improved Golfer can be found in Section 5 of the WNHGA Manual
