Just looked up Diablo Golf, I don't think it is associated with GHIN, looks like it's just a handicap app. If that is all you use you don't have a GHIN number. You would have to join a club and start fresh.

Some tournaments won't recognize your handicap, even if it's considered USGA conforming simply because they only use GHIN and won't be able to look you up. I use GHIN and US Handicap for that reason. I play just one tournament a year with my step-dad. But I prefer US Handicap for stat tracking. GHIN is just $40 a year at my club so NBD.

This year it will be part of my membership. Talk to the pro shop at one of the courses you play. Some have cheap memberships that come with GHIN and some other perks. At our course for $188 we get GHIN, discounted tee times, range time and 10% discount in the restaurant and pro shop.

A long time ago, Diablo used to have something they called a recreational handicap.  If I remember right, they got into a big tiff with the USGA over it because they deemed it non-conforming to their standards and Diablo sued.

I believe that that's been resolved and they've done away with that product and now offer some type of e-golfer membership and conforming GHIN handicap.

Reading their FAQ page that doesn't seem to be the case. It looks like you can import GHIN scores to Diablo but Diablo scores don't post to GHIN.

Probably not. GHIN is a subscription handicap service. I suppose the GC AM Tour could be a club.

I have a buddy that plays on the GC Am Tour... they don't offer a GHIN handicap but they do have a handicap service (I can't remember which one). If you want to get an actual GHIN handicap you need to join a club that uses their service. I'd recommend joining the SCGA through GolfSouthernCal.com. You'll get an actual GHIN hcp, membership in the SCGA and a couple of other perks for just under $60.

I believe that @Golfingdad also plays the GC Am Tour so maybe he can shed some more light on this.

This is good advice. I get some pretty cool offers and opportunities from the Colorado Golf Association. Heck just getting the email notifications makes it worth it. I don't take advantage of anything but I can see how many would. We were offered pre-sale tickets to the one and only pro tournament coming to town this year.

You can also get a GHIN number through a local course.  I chose a course I play a lot an have my handicap through them.  They are associated with GHIN so I can post on line.

Mornin' fellas,

I am wanting to get a handicap index without joining a golf club. I am not financially able to join a club around where I live (college student) but I play most weekends. I have been invited to play in a few tournaments and they require a handicap index. Is there any way I can receive a handicap without joining a country club? Thanks in advance and hit 'em straight!

This should be what you're looking for:

Correct. Most public courses have some sort of association you can join. When you join they will give you a GHIN#, at least that is how it works in my neck of the woods.
