The handicap system that we are using is called the Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN) which is a service from the United States Golf Association (USGA), the largest handicapping service provider in the world. Here are some features of the system:
1. The system allows you to post scores online. The steps are:
Go to www.hkga.com > handicap search > post scores
If you are still unable to login to www.ghin.com please contact the Hong Kong Golf Association directly by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
*When posting scores, on Type please select “away”, on State type “Ho or Hong”, Start With type the first character of the golf course. For courses not on the selection list, please click “manual” to input scores. If ratings are not listed on the scorecards, please call us to find out the temporary ratings.
2. A GHIN mobile App allows you to post scores and look up your handicap. It is available, free of charge, from the iTunes store for iOS users as well as from the Google Play store for Android users. After posting scores online through the GHIN mobile App, you will be able to see the immediate impact that each new score will have on your index at the next revision via the Trend.
On Ghin App: ghin # > last name > post scores > search > select state: Hong Kong > course name (first 3 characters) > search > >select type “A” > date played > score > post
Course name: the first 3 characters of the golf course e.g. Hon = Hong Kong Golf Club
