Reminder from the FLCC Rules & Handicap Committee: GHIN Digital Profile

To improve data security and golfer privacy, golfers will need to create a digital profile to access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com beginning in January 2021

In order to create a digital profile, golfers will need to have an email address in their golfer profile. To provide an email address, please contact your Club Admin or local golf association.   

Below is some additional information and frequently asked questions:

Q: Why and when will I need to create a digital profile with a unique email address to log into the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com?

A:In order to improve data security and golfer privacy, golfers will need to create a digital profile to access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com beginning in January 2021. Users are required to have a unique email address to create a digital profile and access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com.

Q: How do I add my email address to my profile so that my digital profile can be created?

A: You can request that your Club Admin or local golf association update your profile within the USGA Admin Portal.

Q: In January 2021, how will I access the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com with my digital profile?

A: When creating a digital profile, you will set a password for your account.  You will then log in to the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com with your email address or GHIN Number and the password that you created.

Q: I share an email address with my spouse/partner, can we log in with the same email address?

A: No, only one digital profile can be tied to one unique email address. The first person to set up a digital profile will “claim” that email address. Another email address must be provided for the other golfer.

Q: What if I do not provide an email address, how can I post a score?

A: If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to create a digital profile and log in to the GHIN Mobile App or ghin.com. You will be able to access a Club Kiosk or have your Club Admin post a score on your behalf.

Q: Will I be able to post a score for my child?

A:Yes, your club can assign you as a guardian for a child. When we launch the digital profile feature in January 2021, you will log in and see a “Change Golfer” link on the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com. Here, you can change who you are viewing/posting scores for.

Course Update

Bridges:  We are hoping to start the bridge cleaning and staining soon.  The cleaning process is easy during play as the guys just step aside for traffic to pass.  The staining process requires some sun, low humidity and mild temperatures.  On days when staining is possible, we may have to close some holes to get the job done.  It doesn’t take long to dry, but it will likely have to happen on days that are nice which means golf will be an issue.  The Pro Shop staff will brief golfers when they check-in. 

Cart Paths:  A full update is available on the Golf Blog:  www.flccgolf.com.  Some temporary relief to the worst cart path bumps is planned for early December.  We’ll rent a mini excavator with a jackhammer and bust as much up as we can.  We’ll then remove the broken concrete and replace it with crushed stone.  The permanent repair process is planned to start in April 2021.  Tree removal will continue over the winter months.

Greens:  We are going to try and get greens aerated with solid tines over the next couple of weeks if everything goes well.  They are not functioning properly and we want to try and encourage them to dry out quicker following rain events.  If they spend all winter sitting in water, they will not perform well next year.  We plan to purchase a deep tine aerator next spring and have the ability to do the job better and more timely.

Cart Path Repair Plan Update

Click here to view the "December 2019 Cart Path Presentation"

November 2020 Update: Cart paths continue to be one of our biggest warts and although we started the repair process earlier this year, we have yet to begin the act of removing and replacing concrete.  You may recall in earlier reports that we planned on starting a multi-year project this year.  That plan includes removing trees that are causing problems and/or likely to cause problems.  Then we'll remove and replace broken sections of path.  We began the tree removal portion of this year's path project in late winter by removing 85 trees along the path on holes 3 and 4.  We intended to do most of the path replacement on those holes this year, but COVID intervened.  COVID related changes to the golf schedule ate up much of the planned timeframe for concrete work this fall.  Additionally, the contractor we selected recently went out of business.  We have a new, much more qualified contractor selected and a new plan of attack from this point forward.  

How will we proceed?  The new plan....

The concrete on holes 3 and 4 will be replaced in the spring of 2021 instead of this fall for the reasons mentioned above.  We have flagged April 19-30 for this to occur.  That coincides with greens aeration and therefore should minimize disruption to play.  Holes 3-5 or possibly the entire front nine will be closed for this work to occur.   

In the meantime we plan to rent equipment to break up some of the worst sections this fall and replace with stone.  This is obviously a band aid, but should give us some temporary relief from the bone jarring bumps.  

We plan to remove the problem causing trees on several other holes this winter in preparation for the next wave of path repairs.  

It is expected that this new contractor, Flatline Contractors Inc. will be able to do much more work in smaller windows of time than all previous contractors we've used or considered.  They specialize in golf cart paths and are equipped for the unique aspects of golf course cart path work.  That will hopefully allow us to move from a 5 to 6 year plan to a 3-4 year plan provided the budget has flexibility.  I think we would all agree that getting this done is critical as is doing it as quickly as possible.
