The Golf Handicap Information Network (GHIN) is a service offered by the USGA to golf associations worldwide. GHIN is one of the largest handicap management tools in the world, serving more than 2.3 million golfers and 15,000 golf clubs. Its services include the USGA Admin Portal for golfer management, score posting products for golfers and USGA Tournament Management.
By having a GHIN account, it allows its members to post scores, calculate handicaps and retrieve handicap information online, from any computer.
Golfers post scores under the USGA Handicap System, and GHIN tracks those scores and updates the golfers' handicap indexes.
Handicap indexes allow you to compete with golfers of any skill level without having to give out strokes arbitrarily. By using a Handicap Index, you can also compete against your own potential scoring ability instead of other golfer's scores.
