GHIN Digital Profile

To improve data security and golfer privacy, golfers will need to create a digital profile to access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com beginning in January 2021

In order to create a digital profile, golfers will need to have an email address in their golfer profile. To provide an email address, please contact your Club Admin or local golf association.   

Below is some additional information and frequently asked questions:
