Mission:

The United States Golf Association was formed in 1894 as an association of member clubs. The USGA exists to promote and conserve throughout the United States and Mexico the best interests and the true spirit of the game of golf as embodied in its ancient and honorable traditions. Fundamental to this purpose are the rules of the game and preservation of amateur competition.

As the governing body of golf in the United States, the USGA must protect the integrity and the challenge of the game of golf. To achieve this, the USGA creates and enforces rules for play and amateur status, as well as standards for handicapping and equipment.

To encourage amateur competition, the USGA annually conducts ten national amateur championships and three national pro-amateur championships, including the U.S. Open. The USGA also sponsors teams for international amateur events.

The USGA has audited financial statements. They are in the Annual Report which is on the USGA's website. They are also posted by the USGA in Guidestar. BDO is the auditor.
The Federal Form 990 provides information regarding salaries and benefits for management. This information may be of interest to those who are interested in financial matters of the USGA.

I have been a USGA member since 2005 and, as a life long golfer, I appreciate the work and role of the USGA. When I checked out the USGA rating on Charity Navigator, however, I was surprised it has a rating below 50. I am especially surprised that the USGA does not have audited financial statements. Considering the size and scope of the organization, I strongly recommend this deficiency be corrected and that your financials be made available for review by the public.
