Register or Renew your NJSGA GHIN Handicap

Golf Clubs in New Jersey often provide membership to the USGA's Golf Handicap Information Network (GHIN) as part of their member services. Golfers who are not members of golf clubs can establish a handicap index through a public golf course or the NJSGA eClub. If there is a golf course you play often or is close to where you live or work, you can inquire at the golf course about setting up an NJSGA/GHIN handicap. You can also sign up online for your GHIN service at select public facilities by completing the form below. 

Once you've established your NJSGA GHIN Handicap, you are a member of the NJSGA. Using your last name and GHIN Number, you will be able to post scores online. Upon the next revision, you will be able to retrieve your last 20 scores and handicap index at and You will receive your updated handicap index via the NJSGA Handicap eBulletin, emailed to you every two weeks during the golf season and once a month in the off-season. The eBulletin contains a direct link to your latest handicap history as well as the latest news from the NJSGA.
