The Anthracite Golf Association provides permanent yardage markers for all member clubs who participate in GHIN.
The GHIN, which is fully supported by the USGA, offers an affordable and uniform procedure for handicapping all golfers. The computerized service allows member clubs the ability to inquire into any golfer’s scoring history and retrieve a current handicap index for that player, provided that golfer has a GHIN handicap number. The GHIN system facilitates guest score entry and then routes that player’s score, adjusted for the slope and rating of the host course, back to the home club of the guest. GHIN is a true handicap network, serving over one and a half million golfers nationwide. It is also one of the few sources of revenue for the AGA.
