GHIN is launching an updated GHIN Mobile App on January 6, 2020. From January 1-5, 2020, you will be unable to access the GHIN App. GHIN is transitioning platforms in conjunction with the launch of the World Handicap System. You will need to update the mobile App on or after January 6, to access the new features.
The World Handicap System has three main objectives: (i) to encourage as many golfers as possible to obtain and maintain a handicap; (ii) to enable golfers of differing abilities, genders and nationalities to take their handicap to any course in the world and compete on a fair basis; and (iii) to indicate with sufficient accuracy the score a golfer is reasonably capable of achieving on any course around the world, playing under normal conditions. We are confident that the Rules of Handicapping meet these objectives, that golfers will find them to be inclusive and fair and that handicap administrators will find them to be a modern, adaptable code that can be consistently applied.
