New Features for 2023
Create Custom Reports
The custom report option allows administrators to take a report, choose which filters to apply,
change the sorting to their liking, then save those modifications as a "Custom Report". Custom reports
can be added to the home page using the Custom Report Widget, and they appear in the Stats
section under their own "Custom Report" heading.
- Handicap Differential Report: Show the performance of the league for different courses and front/back of the same course
- New Dashboard Widget: Standings by League Group
- Added the League Group option to the reports which didn't have that as a filter
The Live Scoring Leaderboard has been optimized for leagues who play different sides and/or courses on the same day
Option to display tee boxes for each card for a variety of ways. For example, showing all tees entered for a course, or only tees which
are assigned for the league, or tees used specific to each scorecard.
New higher resolution images! Resolution has been changed from a max of 1024 pixels for width/height to 1920.
New Manage Rainout functionality. The new system has a more step-by-step approach to rainouts to help prevent someone from accidentially
moving or cancelling a round
- New option for Stroke Control: Net Triple Bogey
For individual player leagues, you can find the player on the score entry screen by name and
Golf League Tracker will automatically open their scorecard for entry. This is in addition

the player/team list by group, or show all.
- Ability to manually add a sub for an open sub request
New Settings for 2023

- New option to distribute player/teams by group rather than putting all the groups together

New Settings for 2022
New Features for 2021
Image Gallery/Document Library
This optional upgrade allows the league administrators to upload photos for their league and organize them into albums. Along with the image gallery,
comes the Document Library which allows league administrators to upload documents pertaining to your league for safe keeping, or to share
with your league players.
New Point Engine
The points engine was rewritten from the ground-up for 2021 which opens up several new features:
- Live Leaderboard Enhancement - allow a running point total as the round is played
- Live Leaderboard Enhancement - for leagues who use League Groups, display the group name in the leaderboard
Save and record points in one step - Entering scores and points was consolidated into one step where points can automatically be calculated when scores are saved. If your
league has special rules or you want to override the points calculated, you can optionally "record points" after entering scores so you can make any manual
adjustments as you please.
New Scheduling Functionality
Auto schedule for a single round. This feature allows an administrator to choose a subset of players
from the league and have the system automatically set the pairings. Most leagues auto schedule all the players ahead of time
before the season begins, but if you have a sign-up sheet and don't know who is playing from week to week, this feature
will make scheduling much easier.
Player Score Entry for Handicap Manager Leagues
A new setting which allows League Administrators to enable Player Score Entry for handicap leagues. After scores are entered,
the league administrator then "confirms" or "deletes" the score.
- The ability for the league administrator to add scores for all players for a single date, rather than one by one
Standard League Manager - Win/Loss/Tie Weekly Report. This report compares a player/team score vs all other players/teams for the week, and calculate a WLT for
each. You can run a net or gross skin report, and show the WLT in 3 different formats: WLT, Points (1 pt for a win, 1/2 pt for a tie), or a Win %.
- Handicap Manager League - Scoring average by player
- Handicap Manager League - Scoring average over time by player
New League Dashboard Widgets
- League Contacts widget allows the display of the league officers on the home page dashboard
Document Library Widget - With the optional Image Gallery/Document Library upgrade, this widget allows you to
display a list of uploaded documents on the home page dashboard
For Handicap Manager Leagues and for historical scores, an administrator can choose the course and tee box the player played when entering scores, or enter a
custom slope/rating/par for the score entered.
The ability to change team assignments and/or schedule after scores were entered for that round. Previously once scores were entered for a given round,
the team/player assigment and schedule was locked in. This change makes it much easier to add players after the fact to the system.
- When setting up an individual player league, the league setup was improved to allow the auto assignment of the player numbers.
Rewrite of all Legacy Code
Legacy Classic ASP code was rewritten to use c#/mvc for a consolidated platform, improving performance and reliability for the user.
New Settings for 2021
New Features for 2020
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.

so they appear at the top of the leaderboard.
New and Improved Settings Screen for Hole Stroke Limits
A new settings screen has been created solely to setting Hole Stroke Limits 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
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.

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

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,
