What scores should I post?

Section 2 of the Rules of Handicapping (Effective January 2024)- Click Here

Fair handicapping depends upon full and accurate information regarding a player’s potential scoring ability as reflected by a complete scoring record.

To post a 9-hole score, the player must play all 9 holes, unless the use of Net Par is allowed by the golf course and used for one hole on a rated 9 Hole Course RatingTM and Slope RatingTM. Click Here for more information on the treatment of 9 Hole scores. A golfer may post a round in which 10-17 holes were played, but it must be posted Hole-By-Hole for the round to be calculated properly. Click here for a detailed explanation on the treatment of 10-17 hole rounds.

What is Net Double Bogey?

Net Double Bogey is the maximum allowable hole score for handicap purposes. The procedure is typically applied after the round and before a score is posted. However, when the format of play allows, or when playing a recreational round, you can pick up once you’ve reached your Net Double Bogey limit. Net Double Bogey prevents the occasional bad hole from impacting your Handicap Index too severely.

How is Net Double Bogey Calculated?

Net Double Bogey = Double Bogey +/- any handicap stroked received on a hole (minus applies to a plus-handicap player)

If you post hole-by-hole scores, the Net Double Bogey adjustment will be applied automatically.

When will I get a Handicap Index?

A minimum of 54 holes must be posted to receive your first Handicap Index. It can include any combination of 9 Hole or 18 Hole rounds for the establishment of a Handicap Index. Revisions occur daily to a golfer’s Handicap Index, if a round was posted the previous day. A golfer will receive notifications via the GHIN Mobile App the day after posting an acceptable score that their Handicap Index has been revised. They also receive an email on the 1st and 15th of every month that lists their current Handicap Index and includes a scores posted report.

Please note that your golf club oversees your scoring record and Handicap Index.  If a mistake was made when posting online (i.e., duplicate score, incorrect score, wrong date, etc.), you may contact the person responsible for GHIN at your club or the LGA office. Both parties are able to make this type of correction or edit to your scoring record.  If you have forgotten your GHIN Number, please call the LGA offices at 337-265-3938 or email
