As always, new features and enhancements are made to Golf League Tracker each season!
If you're an 18 hole league, you can award separate points for front and back 9 net score totals
Limit a player to twice that of par for a given hole when calculating handicaps
By default, Golf League Tracker will only count those players who are playing for a given week when calculating how much is in the pot. With this option you can specify a fixed amount regardless of the number of players.
Additional point options for Stableford leagues: Triple bogey and "triple eagle" (4 under par)
Similar to multiple divisions, you can now group together players or teams, and filter by that group on the main League Standings screen. For more information on division and team grouping options, please see the How-To Guide on the subject.
If you're a best ball league, you can now specify whether or not hole points are added to the team's total. Previously, this was not a separate settings, and the rule for this would be based off of the Match Play Point Method setting.
The number of handicap padding scores can now be specified. Previously it defaulted to whatever number of scores you used in calculating your handicap. However, for leagues who used their entire season for the handicap calculation, handicap padding wasn't viable, so this option is born.
For any competitions which are hole based (i.e. match play, best ball, stableford) you can limit the number of strokes a player may receive on a par 3.
A new option for Net Skins. By default all net skins players receive their full handicap. With this option, you can have handicaps for net skins based off the lowest handicapped player in the field.
For 2-player teams, points are awarded to the team with the most total number of holes won of the individual match play matches.
For 2-player teams, points are awarded to the team if both players won their match play match. If both players don't win, you can set whether those points are split between the two teams or not awarded.
When a player plays against a sub, you can give them a minimum amount of points they will win, regardless of the outcome of the match. This can have an effect of awarding more total points than normally possible. For example, if you play 1 point per hole, and have this set to 5 points, if the sub won 6 points, and the player won 3 points, the player will automatically receive the minimum 5 points, with a total of 11 points being awarded.
When a player plays against the course, you can give them a minimum amount of points they will win, regardless of the outcome of the match. This can have an effect of awarding more total points than normally possible. For example, if you play 1 point per hole, and have this set to 5 points, if the course won 6 points, and the player won 3 points, the player will automatically receive the minimum 5 points, with a total of 11 points being awarded.
This setting allows regular league members to receive points for just showing up. Subs and absent players will not receive these points. This encourages players to attend the league.
When printing score cards, you've always had the ability to enter a message to appear on the card right from the Print Score Card screen. But now that players can print their own cards, Administrators needed a way to still include a message, and this setting solves that problem. When you change this setting, the message you set will appear on the card in addition to any option message that you may enter at the time of printing.
