Score Posting Season Begins April 15

Apr 14, 2021

With the start of Spring comes the start of the active handicap posting season. Starting on April 15, any rounds played in Maine must be posted to GHIN for handicap purposes. The season for posting scores here in Maine runs from April 15 to October 31. Scores can be posted online, at the club computer after the round, or using the GHIN mobile app.

So dust off those clubs, head to the course, and be sure to post your score when you're done!

Frequently Asked Questions
