Getgood was born in Coylton, Ayrshire. He joined local side Ayr United in 1912 before moving to England to join Reading in the Southern League in July 1914. Immediately on joining Reading his football career was interrupted by the First World War. During the war he served with the Royal Scots Fusiliers before joining the Royal Army Medical Corps in April 1916. After the cessation he returned to Reading in time for their first season in the Football League Third Division. While on the books of Reading he was known as George Goodman, and he made a total of 40 appearances, scoring once.
He had acquired a reputation for strong tackling, and in August 1921 Birmingham signed him to strengthen their newly promoted side; he played ten First Division games at right half but did not settle, and transferred to Southampton in March 1922.
At the time Southampton were leading the Third Division South table and their fans were confident of gaining promotion. Manager Jimmy McIntyre shocked them by announcing a four-player transfer: wingers Fred Foxall and Joe Barratt were to join Birmingham in exchange for Jack Elkes (a forward) and Getgood. The move was a success, however, as Southampton were able to claim the title by overtaking Plymouth Argyle on the final day of the season.
In February 1923 he returned to the Midlands to join Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Bill McCall moving in the opposite direction as part of an exchange deal. At the end of the 1922–23 season Wolves were relegated to the Third Division North but returned to the Second Division in 1924 as champions. After making 59 appearances for Wolves, he spent a season with Kidderminster Harriers, before moving to Aberdare Athletic for a few months during their final season in the Football League.
Getgood was the licensee of the Great Western Hotel in Bewdley before returning to Scotland, where he appeared for Second Division sides Bathgate and Bo'ness. He then came back again to the Midlands where he took a job as a bus conductor and turned out for Nuneaton Town and his works team Midland Red Sports. He later worked as a porter in Worcester. He died in Kidderminster on 22 July 1970 aged 77.
