Posting Score on GHIN
We would like to draw your attention to the features of the GHIN;
Starting from January 1st, 2015 HKPG no longer issues the plastic handicap card that requires new updated labels monthly.
The handicap system that we are using is called the Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN) which is a service of the United States Golf Association (USGA), the largest handicapping service provider in the world. Here are some key features of GHIN:
The system allows you to post scores on-line. The steps are:
1. Go to GHIN
2. Login with your GHIN# and Last Name.
3. There is no need to create profile, one has already been created for you.
* When posting scores, on Type please select “away”, on State type “Ho or Hong”, type the first character of the golf course.
* For International courses not on the selection list, please click “manual” to input scores.
* If you ratings are not listed on the scorecards, please use the temporary ratings conversion chart.
A GHIN mobile App allows you to post scores and look up your handicap. There is also an image of you Handicap Card. The GHIN App 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 on-line 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
An e-Newsletter is electronically sent to you by email if you have already registered you email address with GHIN.com. The e-Newsletter includes a history of your Handicap Index plus an image of your handicap label and membership card.
We hope that you will enjoy the features of the GHIN handicap system.
