World Handicap System Going Live in 2020!

The USGA will be transitioning to the World Handicap System (WHS) effective January 1, 2020! To prepare for this transition, all score posting on GHIN and GolfNet will be disabled from December 31, 2019 through January 6, 2020. Posting is expected to begin again on January 7. The last revision under the current system will be on December 15, 2019.

NOTE: All Handicaps will be recalculated using the new Handicap Index formula so when the new system goes live, you may see your Handicap go up or down slightly from where it was on the December 15 revision. Going forward from January 7, all Handicaps will be updated DAILY at midnight Pacific time.

The GHIN website (ghin.com) and the GHIN mobile app will be completely overhauled with a new look and new functions. If you use the mobile app, you may need to manually update your app.

GolfNet will be going through similar changes to their posting website and mobile app. We will have more information about how to post online coming later in December.
