Why Does My Handicap Index Appear As NH?

Why does my handicap index appear as NH? I paid my 2017 dues and I’ve had a handicap for years! Are all of my scores deleted?


Don’t worry! Your scoring history is still there.

For most of you that maintain your handicap a public club (and select private clubs), your handicap usually expires no later than February 28th. If you pay your dues prior to that date, you should have no problem staying active and up-to-date. After February 28th , your GHIN number will become inactive. Just try and approach it as a handicap hibernation.

Once you have paid your dues and your course activates your handicap, it will appear as NH until the next Revision. Revisions (aka handicap calculations) take place during the early morning hours of the 1st and 15th each month.  If you are playing in an event on April 15th, make sure your handicap becomes active in the system by the 14th so it can be included in the Revision.

A newbie to the handicap system? You need at least five eighteen hole rounds in order to establish a handicap index.

If you do not receive your bi-monthly handicap Revision email, let us know. We want to make sure you are taking full advantage of your membership benefits. Questions about your handicap? Please contact Administrator Handicapping & Course Rating, Caleb Cox.
