    The Grint

    Does anyone use The Grint for establishing/monitoring your handicap?
    I was just going to sign up for oobgolf, or something similar until I came across this.
    It looks like I can get an official handicap without belonging to a club? Does this seem legit/fishy to anyone?

    Here is the website: http://www.thegrint.com/

    I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    I went to the USGA Website and looked up The Grint. It seems legit. It says it's a Type 3 club which is the option for internet type of scores. I'm not sure if this will give you a GHIN number that can be looked up, or how this would work for tournament purposes.

    http://www.usga.org/HDCPClubLic/detail.asp?clid=33388&Auth=Y


    Now that I've looked through that website some more, it looks like they assign you to a Type 3 golf club when you sign up. It makes sense what the website is trying to do, they are helping people make their own Type 3 golf clubs. So you aren't necessarily going to be in "TheGrint" golf club as much as thegrint site is going to either put you in a golf club or help you set one up.

    Just started to use TheGrint app for Android and it seems really good. The website looks professional enough with lots of stats to look through.

    I like that the website has the ability to see your friends and start your own tour with them. Gonna try to get a few buddies on there and see how it works.

    I also emailed the developers to add a few courses that weren't initially available, they were uploaded and available within a few days. So far it's two thumbs up for me.

    This is a new one to me, going to read up a bit on it and check it out. Appears to be a free download, so might give the Scorecard part of the app a try.

    I have used the Grint in the past. From my recollection you have to take a picture of the scorecard. Nifty little app. Just as a disclaimer I don't use it anymore.

    Yep, just read that. I was hoping it had a scorecard feature in the app itself, but it does not. That's unfortunate.

    Btw... I bumped up a thread on DiabloGolf too... reads similar to TheGrint so I'm trying to figure out the best option.

    Good stuff dude!

    How long have you been using it?
    Do you use just the app or do you find you need the website as well?

    I've been using it for almost a year now. I use the app sometimes when I'm on the course to keep my scores. If I just forget my phone, I'll just keep my scorecard and input my score later. I've never had to use the scorecard pic portion of the app.
