I am new to obtaining my handicap but have been playing for years. I am scheduled to play in a tournament and wanted to know if the handicaps here are valid thru USGA and will they allow my handicap from this site. Any help is much appreciated

USGA Licensing
Compliant golf clubs on US Handicap are licensed directly by the USGA and appear on http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org in their authorized club database. Each compliant club on this site will link to it's official listing on http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org

If you have a Handicap Index on this site, then your handicap is licensed and recognized with the USGA.

GHIN
US Handicap does not participate in the GHIN computation service. GHIN is a different handicap system used by some regional golf associations. US Handicap clubs are licensed directly by the USGA and use the GolfNet handicap network. GolfNet and GHIN are not the same handicap service, but both are USGA compliant. The Handicap Index you receive on US Handicap will not be found on the GHIN Network.

Golf Tournaments
Tournaments often ask for a GHIN number because the GHIN system enables golfers, who are members of a regional association, lookup each other's handicap, or enter scores from a course computer.

Tournaments or other relevant bodies can verify an official club status on http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org' target='_new' rel='nofollow'>http://www.usga.org and can use the US Handicap Handicap Lookup to confirm a member's index.

If the tournament has any further questions, they are welcome to contact us directly.
