NEW GHIN HANDICAP
You will receive an email confirmation providing you with your new GHIN number.
Members of a golf club must have a reasonable and regular opportunity to play golf with each other. They must be able to return scores personally, and these scores must be immediately available for review by fellow club members. A golf club doesn't have to be a private club. It can be at a public course or even a group that is not affiliated with a golf course.
Once you have your GHIN number, you can post your scores at any club or online at coloradogolf.org (simply create a user profile and when you log in you'll have the option to post scores). Once you have minimum of five scores posted and we pass a handicap revision date (1st and 15th of every month) you will have an official USGA Handicap Index! Eventually it's based on the best 10 of your last 20 rounds. To learn how to determine your ESC score to post and find more about the system, use the resources in the left navigation box. Score entries may be made from March 15th through November 15th.
As of January of 2002, the USGA allows players to occasionally post scores online. This means that although players must still be a member of a golf club, they can post scores online, even from home, if their golf club has chosen to allow online posting. All scores are still subject to peer review, and the preferred way to expose scores to peer review is to post your score in person immediately following the round at the course where the round is played.
All things considered, online posting can be a convenient and expedient manner in which to post scores.
