Handicap Services

We are a proud provider of the Golf Handicap & Information Network (GHIN). GHIN is an all-inclusive software package developed by the USGA for the purpose of helping clubs, golfers and golf associations interact and promote the game. Key services of the software package include handicap management, tournament management, web services and data services.

An essential part of the USGA® Handicap System™ is that all golfers in a region have their Handicap Index® updated on regular and consistent basis. The revision schedule of when these changes occur may not be well known by all golfers and it may not be convenient to get to their club to get a new handicap sticker. RIGA golfers can receive eRevision™ via e-mail when the revised USGA Handicap Index become official.

Prior to the revision date, golfers will receive an e-mail from the RIGA with a link to their most current eRevision. More than just a number, an eRevision is a detailed representation of all of the scores that were part of the new evaluation. In addition to a representation of the handicap card and sticker, there is the golfer's Handicap Index history, golf association news, and links to important and useful web information and tools.
