I am being asked for a GHIN# to participate in a tournament. I provided my member number, but that was not what they needed. How can I locate my GHIN#?

It's the most common forum question asked here. The link below is the page you'd arrive at on your very first visit and is near impossible to get to once you create an account if you don't know what youre doing.

https://www.ushandicap.com/home

This is what the page says if you can't get to it:

GHIN
US Handicap does not participate in the GHIN computation service. GHIN is a different handicap system used by some regional golf associations. US Handicap clubs are licensed directly by the USGA and use the GolfNet handicap network. GolfNet and GHIN are not the same handicap service, but both are USGA compliant. The Handicap Index you receive on US Handicap will not be found on the GHIN Network.


USGA Licensing
Compliant golf clubs on US Handicap are licensed directly by the USGA and appear on http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org in their authorized club database. Each compliant club on this site will link to it's official listing on http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org

If you have a Handicap Index on this site, then your handicap is licensed and recognized with the USGA.


Golf Tournaments
Tournaments often ask for a GHIN number because the GHIN system enables golfers, who are members of a regional association, lookup each other's handicap, or enter scores from a course computer.

Tournaments or other relevant bodies can verify an official club status on http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org and can use the US Handicap Handicap Lookup to confirm a member's index.

If the tournament has any further questions, they are welcome to contact us directly.
