The York County Amateur Golf Association has partnered with the North Central Pennsylvania Golf Association in order to begin administering the GHIN (Golfers Handicapping and Information Network) system to member clubs effective March 15, 2010. This system, 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.
As part of the GHIN system, the Tournament Players Program (TPP) is provided with the installation of the GHIN program. This Tournament program is the most versatile program available and provides a seamless transition between itself and the GHIN handicap program.
As part of the services we have provided direct access to entering your scores to GHIN and to complete a Handicap Search and score review in the areas below.
To view your USGA Handicap Index, along with the last 20 scores used to calculate that Handicap Index, enter your lookup into the fields below. Information for golfers who were not on the GHIN server with "active" status at the beginning of the revision period will not be displayed in this section of GHIN.com. If golfers have recently become "active", they will appear in the next handicap revision.

2016 Handicap Revision Schedule
Handicaps are revised by NCPGA 15 times during the season (April 1 through October 31). A handicap revision schedule follows. Four offseason revisions will occur - December 1, January 1, February 1 and March 1.
REMINDER - Scores made at a golf course in an area observing an active season must be posted for handicap purposes, even when the club from which the player receives his Handicap Index is observing our inactive season. Therefore, if an individual member of a YCAGA GHIN club plays golf in Florida during January, any scores made in Florida are acceptable and must be returned to the player’s club.
ACTIVE SEASON - State Golf Associations on the East Coast that do not observe an inactive season include Virginia, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina. Scores made in these states must be posted for handicap purposes no matter what time of year the rounds of golf are played.
