Golf League Tracker New Features

New features and enhancements are made to Golf League Tracker each season. Below lists the major new features added each season. For more details, see the Product Release Notes for minor additions, changes, and fixes.

New Features for 2020

World Handicap System Support

The USGA and 5 other world golfing organizations have settled (more or less) on standards for a new unified handicapping system, and Golf League Tracker led the way and implemented the formula before the USGA even went live!

Automatic GHIN Pull

Golf League Tracker can now automatically pull player's handicaps if you want to use official GHIN handicaps. All you need is the GHIN and the last name of the player. You can choose to update Golf League Tracker when YOU want (with a push of a button) or set it up to automatically update nightly.

Automated Renewal for Multiple Leagues

For those of you who run multiple leagues, Golf League Tracker now automates the renewal process for you. Copy all of your leagues at once to the new year, and purchase all leagues at once with your multi-league discount.

Custom Tee Times for Specific Rounds

You can now add custom tee times for specific rounds. For example, let's say you normally play at 4:00pm start with 9 minute tee times, but on your 12th round of the season, the course has an outing, and would like you to go off at 4:30pm instead. You can now set those tee times which only affect the 12th round.

Switch Seasons with a Click

If you want to see previous season, you now only have to go up to the "Menu" in the upper right and click "Switch Season" and choose which previous season you'd like to see. The page will refresh (keeping you on the same page) and you'll be switched automatically. No more logging out and back in to switch.

Live Scoring Improvements and Additions

New and Improved Settings Screen for Equitable Stroke Control

A new settings screen has been created solely to setting Equitable Stroke Control which makes it more intuitive and fool-proof to get your settings right.

Enhanced Scheduling for Multiple Groups and Split Tee Times

  • If your league uses League Groups (aka, divisions or flights), you can now set the schedule so that players play within their group, or outside of their group.
  • Added ability to schedule round for only a single League Groups. This enables you to do things such as split tee times, where one group plays on one side of the course and the other group plays on the other side of the course at the same time.
  • If your league uses "Split tee times", which is where you have half your league go off the front, and the other half go off the back, the auto scheduler has been enhanced to automatically set the schedule.
  • You can now choose how to schedule each round when using the auto scheduler: Set the schedule, skip the round (For position rounds), or leave the schedule as is for that round.

Export Any Report

The export feature has been moved to the upper right of any report or grid, and rewritten so that any report can be exported. The can then be exported to CSV or copied to your computer's clipboard in raw format.

Handicap History Report

Chart how a player's handicap has changed over time

Player or Team Head to Head Report

If you're an individual league, you can see the results of a specific player vs another player over time, across seasons.

If you're a team league, you can see the results of a specific team number vs another team number of time. Note that the members of that team may have changed over time.

Scorecard Hole Highlight for Shotgun Starts

When setting up your tee times, you can choose a starting hole if you're a shotgun start. This new feature will highlight the starting hole for the player by putting a pale background color on the scorecard when you print it.


New Settings for 2019

New Features for 2018

  • Multiple tee box support. You can now create multiple tee boxes for your courses, assign players to them, and calculate and adjust handicaps based on the course rating/slope and print scorecards with the tee box information.
  • New Stroke Play format: Set up a point system to automatically award points for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc., either by an absolute point system, or a percentage based payout.
  • Complete rewrite of the sub request functionality. A sub request is now tied to a date rather than a round number, which eliminates scheduling problems when a rainout occurs.
  • Subs who have reserved a player's spot are automatically pre-selected when entering scores.
  • Several new settings to customize sub request e-mails and who receives them.
  • A new updated e-mail server, which allows e-mails to be queued. This means you don't have to wait for e-mails to be sent, resulting for a near immediate response when requesting subs or sending e-mails to your players.
  • Another new update to the server infrastructure for a faster user experience and higher up-time availability.
  • Several new settings which allow you to customize your display for various screens.
