When logging in, you MUST login using the provided Player GGID or you will not get access to the digital scorecard portion of the app.


  •  DURING THE ROUND - Within the group, players will be marking for one other player (just as you would with a paper scorecard). The electronic scorecard has a section for "Marker's Notes". This is the equivalent to the tear strip at the top of a scorecard where the marker may keep his or her own scores. 
  •  WHEN ROUND IS COMPLETED - At the end of the round, all players in the group must report any rules issues to the committee and confirm hole-by-hole scores are correct.  If there are any discrepancies between your "Marker's Notes" and the scores your marker entered for you, they will be highlighted in yellow.
  • CERTIFYING SCORES - Once all scores are correct you will be prompted to "Certify as Marker" and then you will move to "My Scores", located at the top of your screen, and then be prompted to "Certify as Player".  This is the equivalent of signing a paper scorecard and satisfies the requirements of Rule 3.3b. Scores will be considered official and returned once the player has left the scoring area as defined in the Notice to Players.
  • Digital Scorecard Training - A step-by-step guide to digital scorecards.



In the event of ties, there will be a play-off for first place, if conditions allow for Championship Flights only. Ties for second and third will be decided using the USGA’s method for matching cards if not broken during the play-off for first place. Ties for First Flights will be decided using the USGA method of matching cards. In a competition with a multiple tee start, the last nine holes will be holes 10-18.
