Agolf scoring number of years ago, I was assigned the task of starting a league at my home club but I found it very difficult to build any real excitement.  After a couple of frustrating seasons, I knew I needed some help so I contacted as many golf experts as I could – Professionals, General Managers, Conveners, F & B Managers – and asked for a specific list of what they felt was important in order to run the perfect golf league;

* Entering scores must be quick and easy
* Results must be available immediately
* Separate league handicaps
* Scoring method must appeal to every level of player from 0 – 36
* System must reward performance, promote participation & eliminate “sandbagging”
* Results must be presented in an entertaining fashion
* Regular and easy communication with participants
* System must help build a sense of community/loyalty at the club                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Armed with this information, I created a simple version of our current system.  It took off almost immediately; by our fifth year, my league had 260 players register and we averaged almost exactly 200 players every week.  GM’s like the program because it increases Food & Beverage sales while building a sense of community within the club.  Pro’s like it because there’s no manual scoring and the players love it because it’s immediate, entertaining and rewards both performance and participation.
