1. GHIN Mobile App
We want to sincerely apologize for the technical difficulties you may have experienced over the past week while using the GHIN Mobile App. The following is a statement from GHIN about the application:
The GHIN Mobile app is currently under construction and not available for use. Golfers trying to access the app will receive the following message depending on the device they are using:
iPhone = “No Membership Found”

Please do not be alarmed regarding your membership.
If you are currently in good standing with your club, there is no impact to your membership status. The USGA is working to restore functionality to the GHIN Mobile app as quickly as possible.In the interim, please use GHIN.com or the mobile version of the site for smartphones and tablets (http://m.ghin.com/) to record your scores.
We are still waiting for more information and a restoration timeline, and we will do our best to keep you informed.
The tournament and league seasons are sneaking up on us; don’t forget to renew your membership! You can still renew online or by calling the UGA office at 801-563-0400. You will be able to keep your old GHIN number, but you will have to pay a $5 reinstatement fee. You can find out more about the membership calendar and structure HERE.

4. Women’s Spring Open
Here is a quick recap of the Women’s Spring Open by UGA Programs Administrator, Megan Terry:
Kiselya Plewe and Gracie Richens, the youngest team in the field, played exceptionally well during the final round of the Women’s Spring Open at Coral Canyon Golf Course to earn the overall win and the championship title.
The duo brought in a second-round total of 85 gross Modified Stableford points, an impressive improvement following their first-round 64, and sealed the deal with a two-day gross total of 149 points, 25 points ahead of second place finishers Kareen Alton and Jodi White.
Alton and White played consistent golf during both Monday’s first round at Green Spring Golf Course and the final round at Coral Canyon to give Plewe and Richens a run for their money and come out in second place in the First Flight with 65 round-one gross points and a two-day total of 124.
Teresa Lundahl and Christine Wahler made 76 net points in Round 1 and 98 points in Round 2 for a total of 174 points to win overall net by five points over Diane Booth and Sandy Kinser.
