GHIN® Launches New Mobile Optimization Technology

Anyone who has ever tried to post a score or look up a USGA Handicap Index® on a Smartphone knows it’s not the easiest thing to do. You could do it, but it wasn’t a simple process.

Fortunately, it is now much easier.

After significant research and testing, GHIN has launched a new optimization for mobile devices. Users of Smartphone technologies will automatically be routed to newly designed mobile pages on the website with no additional action required. A link to the mobile site also can be found at the bottom of the website.

The key is in the new displays, which have been developed specifically for Smartphone users. The mobile site provides a fast, easy option for users who want to post a score or look up a USGA Handicap Index® while away from their computer. While the new mobile feature may not support all mobile phones, it does support the more popular mobile phones of today. GHIN will continue to optimize for other mobile devices in future releases.

The best news is that it is free. Nothing has to be purchased. It is simply functionality that is now available on the website.

Given the success of the recent enhancements to the Post Scores and Handicap Lookup functions on, it was time to turn attention to mobile devices. The end result is that users of the GHIN service now have easy access to their scores and Handicap information whether they are in the office, at home or on the golf course.
