What is iGolf Connecticut?
iGolf Connecticut (IGCT) enables golf clubs to issue a USGA golf handicap index to their members and helps individual golfers join a local USGA licensed internet golf club. Our member clubs to date are certified and licensed to issue handicaps (Definition of a Golf Club). To issue a USGA Handicap Index to its members a golf club must be licensed by the USGA® to utilize the USGA Handicap System™.
IGCT also will administrate Internet Golf Clubs to allow individual golfers to join a club in their geographical area and receive a USGA Handicap Index.

I'm playing in a golf tournament. How do I provide my handicap information?
Anyone can lookup your handicap index online at www.golfhandicapnetwork.com. This link can be forwarded to the club pro or tournament director. You can also print your handicap card from your revision email, which you will receive every 2 weeks.
Why don't I need a GHIN number?
IGCT uses a different USGA computation system through the Golf Handicap Network. The software program is called HandiComp®. This computation system is used in many states througout the country and is recognized by the USGA® as an official USGA computation system. The GHIN system is another type of computation system that many golf courses in CT utilize.
The USGA states that a golf club can utilize any computation system, so as long as the system complies with the USGA Handicap System regulations. More information can be found here:
How do I set my favorite tees list?
Once logged into the handicap system, click the "Favorite Tees" tab and click "Add a Favorite Tee." Search for the course and tee you frequently play. (You can do this for multiple courses & tees). Once saved, your "Favorite Tees" will display when posting a score.
