GHIN MOBILE APP UP AND RUNNING
As of 5/5/2016 the GHIN Mobile app has been successfully deployed to the Apple and Android stores and is now ready for updating or downloading.
The app version that golfers should be using is v2.2.7 for Android or v2.2.3 for Apple. If performing a simple update you will not lose any stored partners or favorite course data.
If you uninstall and then reinstall the app, however, you will need to select any favorite courses and/or add partners. The USGA will continue to monitor all processes to ensure integrity of the core GHIN system and
apologizes for any inconvenience caused by having the App offline.
