GHIN Digital Profile – FAQs
Why and when will golfers need to create a digital profile with a unique email address to log in to the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com?
In order to improve data security and golfer privacy, golfers will need to create a digital profile to post scores via the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com beginning in early January 2021. Users are required to have a unique email address to create a digital profile and access the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com.
How do golfers add an email address to their profile so that they can create a digital profile in January 2021?
Golfers can request that their club’s golf shop staff/GHIN Club Admin or the Texas Golf Association to update their profile within the USGA/GHIN Admin Portal.
How will golfers access the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com with their digital profile?
When creating their digital profile, golfers will set a password for their account. A golfer will then log in to the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com with their email address or GHIN Number and the password they created.
What happens if a golfer forgets their password?
There will be a “Forgot Login Information” link on the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com login page. The golfer will just need to supply their GHIN Number or email address and a reset password email will be sent to their email address on file. Additionally, within the GHIN Admin Portal, there will be a “Reset Password” button within the golfer profile that will trigger a reset password email to the golfer.
If golfers share an email address (e.g. spouse/partner/family), can they create a digital profile and login with the same email address?
No, only one digital profile can be tied to one unique email address. The first person to setup a digital profile will “claim” that email address. A unique address must be provided for each of the other golfer(s).
What if golfers do not provide an email address, how can they post a score?
If golfers do not provide an email address, they will not be able to create a digital profile and log in to the GHIN Mobile App or ghin.com to post scores. They will be able to access a GHIN Club Kiosk or have their club’s golf shop staff/GHIN Club Admin post a score on their behalf.
Since golfers under the age of 13 (considered a Minor) cannot supply an email address, how can they have their scores posted?
A minor will need to be tied to a guardian’s account within the USGA/GHIN Admin Portal prior to January 2021. Once linked, then in January 2021, the guardian will see a “Change Golfer” link when logging in to the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com. Here the guardian can change who they are posting scores for. A club’s golf shop staff/GHIN Club Admin can also post a score on behalf of a minor via the USGA/GHIN Admin Portal.
