Getting Started

GolfLeagueSite has a few options for you to get your league or tournament up and running on the site.


Demo - Existing Scoring Systems

RECOMMENDED FOR
  • flexible league managers without any format requirements
  • anyone who just wants to try GolfLeagueSite for free

The quickest and easiest way to get started with GolfLeagueSite is to test out an existing scoring system with a demo account. This option provides you a free trial account to get familiarized with the website and mobile app. You can manage up to 3 demo leagues in a self-service fashion or we can set it all up for you.

For each of your demo leagues you will choose from our collection of 60 custom scoring systems. Many of these scoring systems have ratings on a 5-star scale collected from player survey data. This can give you an idea of how well-received these scoring systems have been by the league golfers who have used them.

For each demo league you can load up your roster with your league members and each of them will be able to download and use the GolfLeagueSite app. You can create your season events and automatically balance your schedule. Your league can use the GolfLeagueSite app for live leaderboards during play or you can choose to enter scores manually as the league manager. If you choose to continue using any of our existing scoring systems to manage your league beyond the free trial period, this is the cheapest option.

PROS
  • Completely free trial to test out the system
  • Extremely quick startup time - you can be up and running instantly
  • Using established scoring systems of your choice - minimizes bugs
  • Cheapest option if you continue beyond free trial period
  • GLS costs are on a per player per season basis, allowing you to offset the cost into league dues
CONS
  • Less flexibility than commissioning your own custom scoring system
  • Must use the scoring systems as is, without modifications

Build Custom Scoring System

RECOMMENDED FOR
  • league managers who are already sold on GolfLeagueSite
  • leagues and tournaments with strict custom scoring requirements

You can commission your own custom scoring system to match your existing or intended league format. This option provides you a 30-day free trial (new accounts only) and lets you provide exact specifications for how the scoring/standings will work. You can create custom pages with your own content, statistics, results, and custom calculations.

With this option you'll provide your league specifications to us via email and/or virtual meetings (phone call or VTC). You can choose how your standings are dictated, how your printed and digital scorecards will look, and completely customize your league's home page.

GolfLeagueSite will develop your formats to the specifications you have provided and give you an opportunity to test out the resulting product. The cost will be a nominal amount on a per player basis, allowing the league manager to easily offset the cost into annual league dues. Throughout your first season, you can reach out to us to further refine your scoring system if necessary.

PROS

  • GLS costs are on a per player per season basis, allowing you to offset the cost into league dues
