Handicap

Handicap
GHIN service provides membership in the Miami Valley Golf Association and the Dayton District Women’s Golf Association (DDWGA), which makes you eligible to participate in their events and supports your local USGA regional golf association.  You will need to pay the current subscription fee of $25.  Click Here for GHIN New or Renew

GHIN allows you to post scores via the internet or the GHIN Mobile app.  Both allow you to review your scoring record or the scoring records of others within the GHIN system.  The app provides you with an electronic card with your Handicap index.

To establish a handicap, you need to post the minimum number (which is three) of 18-hole rounds.  Posting your golf scores into GHIN in Ohio begins March 15 and ends November 30.  If you play in other states such as Florida, you should post your scores anytime during the year.  Southern and most western states do not have seasonal posting and you should post your scores anytime you play there.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Handicap POC Cheryl Davis.  Her email is magpies35@woh.rr.com.
