Posting Your Scores
Using the GHIN Handicap computer, enter your club number (your Associate Card Number or another number assigned when you applied for GHIN Handicap Service). If your game was at Fairwinds, select the played tee. If you are posting from another golf course, select "Other". Select "Search", spell the name of the other golf course, select the tee played. On the final screen, you may change the date, the type of play (tournament or not). When you are satisfied that the entry is correct, press "Enter". Also, the Golf Shop Attendants would be glad to help you with the use of the GHIN Handicap computer.
You may also post your scores online at home using your PC. On the Internet, go to ghin.com and select "Post a Score". Follow the directions given. You must have your GHIN number to use this method.
If you are playing "away" from Fairwinds, you can post your score at that golf course if they have a GHIN system. You must select "Guest Score Posting", provide your GHIN number and otherwise follow instructions. Your score will eventually be posted on your Fairwinds system as an away game.
You can receive your latest revised handicap by email if you enter your e-mail address into the Fairwinds GHIN Handicap machine.
