Posting Scores Online

Information from ghin.com.

Effective January 1, 2002, the USGA Handicap System will allow clubs the option to have their members occasionally post scores via the Internet. Golf Associations using GHIN encourage golfers to post their scores where they are played; however, this is a great new option for returning scores. If a golfer is a member of a club that allows it, scores can be posted directly to GHIN through this Web Site. The scores will immediately become part of the golfer’s scoring record and will be at the club’s handicap computer the next time it connects to the GHIN network.

The following is updated language in the USGA’s Handicap System Manual:

The Handicap Committee may adopt a policy to occasionally accept scores returned by mail, facsimile, e-mail or the Internet. Scores may not be returned verbally by the telephone.

Scores returned to the club by mail, facsimile, e-mail or the Internet shall be exposed to the same peer review as scores posted in person at the club. If a club adopts a policy to accept scores via mail, facsimile or e-mail, the Handicap Committee must designate an official(s) at the club who is authorized to receive these scores. If a golf club adopts a policy to accept scores posted via the Internet, the club must also provide the ability to review all scores for all members via the Internet.

Total scores may be returned and need not be recorded hole-by-hole. The Handicap Committee shall not require the returning or attesting of scorecards before allowing scores to be posted.
