Application for World Handicap Card
Please note the following :
New handicaps can only be issued after we receive at least 3 x 18 holes or 6 x 9 holes scoring records from you. Please ensure that you have your scorecard ready before beginning the process. Please note that we may carry out random verification of the information submitted, if necessary.
The processing time for your application is approximately 2-3 days. After that, you will receive an email from GHINprofile@usga.org inviting you to create a digital profile, which will allow you to log in to the GHIN mobile app. This app is available for free download on iOS/Google Play store. Once you have completed your profile, you can log in to the mobile app using your GHIN number or email address and the password you created. This will allow you to view your digital handicap card and input scores. Additionally, an updated version of the R&A Rules of Golf app is also available for free download. This app provides comprehensive information about the latest rules and regulations, making it an invaluable resource for all golfers.
The physical handicap card will be sent out via mail around the second week of the following month.
Please contact us at 2504 8197 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org with your application number if there are any questions or concerns.
