What Is a Ghin Number Lookup?

A GHIN handicap lookup is a process through which an individual can use a GHIN number view his handicap index for the USGA. This tool is available on GHIN.com and displays a golfer's USGA handicap index as well as a list of his last 20 golfing scores.

The USGA handicap index that is displayed through a GHIN number lookup is associated with the golfer's score at his registered golf club. This data represents accurate scores as to the latest revision date for the index and does not display information for golfers who are not registered as active in the GHIN server prior to the current revision period.
