This is the official mobile app of the Golf Handicap Information Network (GHIN)
, a service offered by the USGA to golf associations worldwide. It offers a
personalized mobile experience that allows you to manage and follow your
game. Key features include: • Score Posting (Total Score,...
WHS Update Needs An Update
Version 3.0, the WHS update: mostly useless. Can’t type in course by name without getting error. Can’t look up player handicap without getting error. Can’t get your course handicap. All you can really do is see your handicap card. WHS is a big change. This app’s version 3.0 is a big change. Clearly this app needs a lot more work to get it functioning as it seems to be designed to do. A for design. F- for implementation. Update: Three days into the new update. More functions are working now. I am able to find local courses (turn on location services for this app, filter to your state). I am able to look up and follow other GHIN members. I am able to get course handicaps. I would give it a higher rating except for the following issues. The app crashes a lot. Much more than is acceptable. The individual hole by hole scoring is still not working. I get a message that this feature is not available for the course I’ve selected. I don’t know if this is an app or local course issue. Honestly though, I would be just as happy to see the hole by hole scoring and playing stats functionality go away. There are plenty of other apps (some free) that provide this feature and do it quite well. I think these extra functions bloat the GHIN Mobile app, sucking up device resources and perhaps contributing to the frequent crashing. All I want the GHIN app to do is figure course/playing handicaps for me and my playing partners and record my scores.
Just downloaded the new update. Once I got in, it took forever to post a score. I couldn’t see any previous scores or courses. I closed the app and now when I try to go back in, it wants me to log back in but you can’t see anything to login. I just started pushing random spots on my screen and it acted like I was in the GHIN number box, same with name but still can’t get back in. Deleted and reinstalled. Still issues but doesn’t ask for login info and stats are back. Won’t let me select tees to post a score but won’t let you go any further without selecting a tee. I can select anything else on that screen except tees. Tried to post by searching for a course that I have played, and that shows up in Recents, but it can’t find course.
Important feature does not work
The most important feature of the new WHS is the new calculation of the handicap index. That appears to be working correctly. The second most important feature is the ability to determine a course playing handicap. This feature does not work at all on either the app or the web site. You can select the course you are going to play, then it has a pull down for selecting the tee. The pull down does not work at all. There also does not seem to be a place where you can do your own manual calculation by entering a rating and slope.
Need Course Handicap Manual Calculator
Just downloaded the app. No problem logging in. Looks great so far! Haven’t posted a score yet so don’t know the interface usability of that. One important thing I noticed isn’t presently included but I think should be is that there isn’t an ability to manually input a course’s rating & slope. If for some reason the reported course’s rating & slope is incorrect, would be nice to manually input the correct rating & slope ourselves. Otherwise, have no complaints so far and looks like it’ll be a cool app
Less than useless
How do you make your application less useful? Let the USGA write it. Rule #1: Don’t take away features. The handicap calculator is now tied to golfer selection. The old one was general purpose: just put in the index for a coarse and it spit out the coarse handicap. And the list of rounds played in last 12 months or current year use to give a sum/average at the bottom of the page. I could go on and on, but I think it is safe to say the USGA should get out of the software business. Hell, they do a crappy enough job screwing up an otherwise good sport.
Should be no stars
Like others have said I had trouble logging in too but some how it magically got in after I closed all my apps and restarted my phone. I tried entering the hole by hole scores but the holes are all messed up and I can’t even figure out which one is which so I gave up. These people had so much time to prep for this but failed miserably in the execution. This is one of the worst apps I’ve seen in a while. Could be a solid app but I also could be a millionaire....
Update not usable
I’ve used the GHIN app for many months but the WHS update is unusable. In addition to the problems with tee selection and search functions I have found that it does not even have my course right! Ratings and slopes are correct but hole info (par and length) is totally wrong so I can’t do hole by hole score posting and stats. Lesser issues like failure to remember recent courses and number of holes played, too. Previous version was great and easy to use. This one is a real mess!
Problem with tee pull down
I just updated the App with the World Handicap enhancements. Everything looks good except the tee pull down menu generally does not work. I have tried on 2 iPads and 2 iPhones (for 2 different golfers). The other pull down menus seem to work fine.
Can’t give it 0 so it gets a 1. This app locks up on my iPad as well as iPhone. Intermittently doesn't allow you to pick tees, some golfers handicaps don’t adjust to the tees being played. Has shut off when picking golfers, an absolute disappointment. Too many bugs to list, come on GHIN have a testing group and clean this up, the old app worked just fine, look at your reviews it’s only going to get worse.
The new updated App has potential to be great. However, there are some bugs that need to be fixed. Most importantly the new GHIN app shuts down when trying to determine the course handicap and playing partner’s course handicap. Once this gets fixed this will be a great app, but there is work to do!
So change the app...and now require a log in that includes your GHIN number! Who knows that number? Ok...so, I look for the “forgot password/number” link....nowhere to be found!! So now....literally 2 weeks after I re-upped my subscription, the app is useless.... Yes, I’m sure I can call or email someone...but the key to the app is how easy it is to post a score. Fix it please, and fix it fast.
Not working well- bring back the old thx Cisco !
Downloaded the new app on Jan 8- and it’s not working well. Bounces out of app when adding new golfers . Also doesn’t adjust handicaps for golf ptrs when changing their tees . Also they got rid of the handicap differential when using course handicap for fellow golfers - subtraction beyond CISCO capabilities ??
They forgot a “Lookup GHIN number” option
After the update, to use app you have to enter your last name and GHIN number to log in. I don’t have my number memorized and there is no option on screen to get it (like no ‘forgot user name’ option). Called my club and they aren’t able to log in to the new system to provide it either. What a cluster.
App is terrible
Take the App down until it’s functional. Can’t even enter my ghin number and tab to name. Keypad is fixed on screen with no way to move from ghin number entry area to name entry area. Only way to look up data is to go online. Poorly done. Only thing worse is the actual changes to the handicap system. Nothing like going backwards.
The app will not display nearby courses despite my phone’s location services being turned on. Also the app intermittently works when calculating course handicap. Specifically, the tee choice option does not display.
