This is a question which comes up from time to time. GHIN and GolfNet are similar handicap services but different providers. This site provides a GolfNet handicap not a GHIN.

Your handicap index is an official USGA Handicap Index to be accepted at all tournaments. GHIN is a (very overpriced) provider of a USGA Handicap Index.

It's like asking for bacon. You go to Kroger and they charge $4 for bacon. Same pack at WalMart is $5.50, but it has a price tag from WalMart and a different SKU number specific to WalMart. It's exactly the same bacon (Handicap Index) - same brand (USGA), but you can buy it from GHIN for a lot more if you want to.
