Due to logistical issues, golf leagues were never thought of in the same vein as say bowling leagues. As a sport, bowling lends itself to being a team sport made up of individual performers. For some reason, the individualistic nature of golf has always led people to believe the league concept for golfers was too problematic.All of that has changed and golf leagues are becoming just as popular as leagues in other sports. Again, due to logistical issues, creating a golf league takes a bit of effort. Furthermore, managing a golf league offers its challenges because the collection and management of data tends to be so time consuming.
In the sections below, we will offer information about how saving time by using software to manage golf league is possible. It’s possible by using our various services, which will remove the mundane work of gathering information. This will allow you to get back to just enjoying your time on the golf course with family, friends and your new league members.
Creating a Golf League
When someone decides to create their own golf league, there’s a presumption they are willing to take on the task of managing said golf league. The challenges of doing so are many.
The first task at hand is to gather participants. Unlike bowling leagues where it’s easy to confront and gather possible members in close proximity, a golf course is not exactly designed to promote social interactions among a larger group of people. Effort is required to get the information out about the existence of the league and how to join. Golf courses are happy to post league openings, which certainly helps advertise the league’s existence. Still, the league organizer will want to fill the league with friends and like-minded golfers who are seeking similar golf league experiences. Other important issues related to the creation of a golf league include deciding on the format and setting up a schedule. Our golf league management software has been designed to make all of these function easy to handle.
When formatting the league, you’ll have to decide on the number of members, league format (singles, doubles, teams, tournament), scoring format and any relevant rules and regulations. Our software program will support a league with as many members as you want. Once the number of members and league format has been established, you’ll need to work with the local golf course or courses to determine a consistent time for league play. After securing your league’s tee times, you’ll want to establish your league schedule. FYI: Setting up a schedule manually is a nightmare even for as few as 16 members/teams. Our golf league management software can handle this task within seconds of entering all the relevant information.
By the way, our software supports all types of game types, including (but not limited to):
- Team Play Best Ball
- Team Stroke Play
- Team Match Play
- Individual Stroke Play
At this point, your league is ready to go. It’s time to play golf and make your league a reality.
