The NJSGA provides the world-renowned GHIN (Golf Handicap Information Network) service to member clubs and golfers for the purposes of calculating Handicap Indexes, posting scores, and tracking statistics. Each NJSGA member has a unique GHIN number.
One of the key benefits of NJSGA Membership, a GHIN number enables golfers to enjoy competitive opportunities, whether it's to verify your entry into a local, state, or national championship, a club's member-guest event, an outing or for a casual match among friends.
Your GHIN Number (a.k.a. Handicap ID) is provided to you either through a private golf club, public golf course, or the NJSGA E-Club - and for most New Jersey residents, through the New Jersey State Golf Association.
A golfer's Handicap Index is calculated in accordance with the World Handicap System. To learn more about the World Handicap System, click here.
