Who uses The Grint


Recommended Posts

Anyone else using The Grint? I just signed up and I'll have an official USGA Handicap through them after the next revision day.

 

The stat keeping looks good too. Only using the free version now but I'm considering moving to the paid version.

I have been using the Grint for a while. I only use the free version because I don't like monthly pay models for software like this. They used to have a one time pay option but got rid of it prior to my fully evaluating the product.

 

It is nice to see how my handicap is progressing and the basic stats they provide aren't that bad. I only use the GPS functionality when my handhelds battery dies but it works well.

A quick question about the handicap.  As I understand it, you're required to become a member of a club to have an official USGA Handicap Index.  In this case, it would be a Type 3 Club:

 

 

Type 3. The members of a Type 3 club had no prior affiliation, and a majority of the recruiting and sign up of the membership is done by solicitation to the public (e.g., newspaper, Internet). Members do not exhibit any regularity of play at any specific golf course and the residence or business address of each member of the golf club must generally be within 50 miles of the principal location of the golf club.

How does the Grint work this out?  Is there a fee associated with the official Handicap?

Nope, no fee at all for an official USGA Handicap.

For my club I do not have to pay a fee. When I signed up I was provided the club I was a part of.

I've been using The Grint for years and have the membership...I did the USGA club requirements for them so they gifted me a Pro membership.

 

As has been said, they assign you a club based on where you are and it's probably the cheapest way of having an official handicap that I know of.

Great, thanks.  I did read the article at the link jlukes posted, and it seems pretty clear.  They DO mis-represent Ghin a little, but that doesn't change the validity of what the Grint actually does, and it seems legit to me.

The stat keeping looks good too. Only using the free version now but I'm considering moving to the paid version.

 

I used it (paid version) last year because I wanted a hdcp and didn't want to bother with joining a club. The stat tracking is superior to 18birdies IMO, but I switched to 18b since literally ALL of my friends use it. 18b doesn't offer handicaps (yet, the say they will) and now MGS is affiliated so it was another incentive for me to keep using it.

 

One of the cool things about The Grint is you can pay for the pro version using Google Pay credit. If you do Google Rewards surveys (it's an app on your phone) you can basically get it for "free" every year. I wanted the pro version solely for the reason that I could take a picture of my scorecard and upload it, but then I started using the stat tracking and that feature became useless. I like that you have so many options for tracking FIR other than just left and right, so you know when you were short or ran thru the fairway. Minor thing that might not matter to most folks, but I'm a stats nerd. I run a fantasy football league using a google spreadsheet with so many useless-but-fun formulas, and I manually enter everything -- IT/math nerd reporting for duty  B) 7

That's my plan with the Google rewards. Have plenty saved up

Okay, so let me get this right. The Grint gives you an official handicap index? I thought it calculated an index but was unofficial. Could I go enter a USGA event with it or do I still have to use GHIN?

Joining the Grint, you join a Type 3 club local to your area. So your scores are entered through that club -- for instance mine is something like The Grint Honolulu club. They're supposedly legit and you can even print a handicap card out.

Well it isn't official unless the club you belong to has a chairperson that goes through the USGAs course then it becomes an official USGA club then it's an official handicap trust me on this because I used it last year but no one went through the course so I had to do it. Also important to note that there are other stipulations regarding a type 3 club that the clubs in The Grint dont really abide by.

Yeah, as long as your chairperson is willing to do the work. I remember getting a PM from the grint staff asking if anyone wanted to be the new chairperson for Honolulu. I'm not trying to enter events anyways, I just wanted something semi-legit and The Grint works perfectly IMO.

Members of a golf club must have a reasonable and regular opportunity to play golf with each other. The Members' scores must be posted as soon as practicable and be available for inspection by others, including, but not limited to, fellow members and the club's Handicap Committee.

 

This is where it gets a but complicated because nearly all members dont kmow each other dont play together and dont review each other

Is there a certain percentage that have to play with each other? Two of my coworkers were using The Grint at the same time as me, so we could post and attest our scores with each other.
