GHIN Updates and Frequently Asked Questions
An update from the USGA on January 11, 2021:
For the security and privacy of our golfers, GHIN now requires all golfers to create a profile and set a password to access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com. Without updating these settings, players will only be able to post scores at the club kiosk.
Click here to create your profile and set a password. Once an account has been established, you can access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com with your GHIN Number or Email Address and the Password that you have created.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Why do I need to create a digital profile with a unique email address to log into the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com?
A: In order to improve data security and golfer privacy, golfers will need to create a digital profile to access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com.
Q: How do I add my email address to my GHIN profile so that I can create a digital profile?
A: You can request that your Club Admin or local golf association update your GHIN profile within the USGA Admin Portal.
Q: How do I create a Digital Profile?
Q: What if I do not provide an email address, how can I post a score?
A: If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to create a digital profile and log into the GHIN Mobile App or ghin.com. You will be able to access a Club Kiosk or have your Club Admin post a score on your behalf.
Q: I have created a digital profile, but forgot my login information. What should I do?
A: There is a "Forgot Login Information" link on the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com login page. You will need to supply your GHIN Number or email address and a reset password email will be sent to your email address on file.
Q: I share an email address with another golfer, can we log in with the same email address?
A: No, only one digital profile can be tied to one unique email address. The first person to set up a digital profile will “claim” that email address. Another email address must be provided for the other golfer.
Q: I made an error when posting my score, how do I correct it?
A: Please contact your Club or Association, they will be able to assist you in making a correction.
Q: I do not know my GHIN Number; how do I obtain it?
A: Please contact your Club or Association.
Q: I know my GHIN Number, but I am seeing an “Unable to Find Golfer” error message, why?
A: This may be happening for a few reasons:
• Do not include a “dash” in your GHIN Number.
• You may have an Inactive membership, please contact your Club or Association.
• Your club needs to use GHIN as their front-end provider in order for you to be able to access the GHIN products.
