To earn a Handicap Index, a player must report all scores for all 18-hole rounds during the official season when at least 14 holes of an 18-hole round are completed (or 7 holes for nine-hole rounds) and for nine-hole rounds, both home and away, played in either match or stroke play. Accurate and faithful score reporting are the most important parts of a sound handicap system.
The USGA is now requiring a Digital Profile for ALL golfers to access and post scores through GHIN Products (www.ghin.com and the GHIN Mobile App). If you haven’t already created one, click here to create your Digital Profile.
If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact Bryan Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the past you have received your USGA Handicap Index revision email on the 1st and 15th of each month. Going forward, this email will only be sent on the 1st of each month. Daily revisions are now incorporated into the World Handicap System, so your Handicap Index is available daily through our MyGSGA Mobile App.
