Abiliry to post score to GHIN.

I prefer this app over golfshot, which are the 2 that I have used frequently. I now use golfpad exclusively. The only option that I miss is being able to submit score to GHIN for handicap. Would be nice to have an option to submit the score to your GHIN when submitting / saving a round instead of having to have the GHIN app installed as well. Thanks, Jared

I agree 100%, this is absolutely a feature that we will be looking to add to the app in the future.

GolfShot has this feature, and I really wish GolfPadGPS did as well.

Peter,

As I mentioned above this is a feature we really want to have and one that we are currently working on.

This feature is the only feature that I really miss from Golfshot. I am now using Golfpad with Tags and Link. Link was a bit quirky at first but seems to be pretty usable with version 2. 

If you guys would have GHIN submission, GolfPad would be perfect in my book!

I agree.  Posting to GHIN would be great.


Also agree!  4yrs as an open request!?  Any comment from the Golf Pad team?

Hi Jameswhite. Thanks for your comment. We've focused on bringing the most popular/in-demand updates and features. We understand users would appreciate this option and we have it on our road map for potential future development. 

An estimated target date would be appreciated.  Thanks


Hello again Jameswhite. There are several variables at play, not the least of which is the switch to World Handicap System coming next year. This prevents me from being able to provide a target date, but as I said, we have it on our road map. 

Why would the change in the handicap system make any difference. We are not asking for the app to calculate the handicap, but just to send the round score and course info to the handicap authority.

Hi Bland McCartha - the world handicap system requires a large investment of resources on our part. We prioritize our efforts for the features with the highest demand and to ensure the app stays current and relevant for our users. I hope this information helps. 

I started this thread over 4 years ago. I am a mobile developer specializing in Android and iOS. All I have heard for 4 years is different excuses of why not. World handicap has abosultely NOTHING to do with submitting a score to GHIN. It's a poor excuse in regards to your developers lazy. There are no calculations or algorithms needed. A simple text input and a send button. (Technically a text input would not be needed if it was using your final score from the round). Maybe it's time to start "implementing" instead of making excuses. My $.02.

Hi Jared. Thanks for sharing your candid feelings. I'll be sure the team receives your feedback. 

Jared thank you for your feedback. USGA's terms of service do not permit accessing their website programmatically on golfer's behalf. So we can't just make the app go to the website and post the scores for you. Instead the process requires negotiating with Regional Associations and posting scores through them. At least this was the case last time we talked to USGA officials. It's unclear if the process will change once the World Handicap System goes live. 


We've been planning to implement that for a long time, however as a small team we have to focus on features with the biggest impact. GHIN posting just never made it to the top of the list. I apologize about the delay and we'll keep everyone posted as we have any news.
