  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Please do not hesitate to contact us at support@golfify.io if you have any questions.

    Which game formats does Golfify support?

    Golfify supports Strokeplay, Stableford and Matchplay scoring formats.

    Does Golfify support pairs or team competitions?

    Yes.

     

    Golfify supports Alternate shot, Scramble, Greensomes, Pinehurst/Chapman and Better Ball team modes.

     

    For Better Ball competitions you can also specify the scores to count and by default, better ball competitions have an individual leaderboard too, so you can host two competitions in one.

    Do players also need a Golfify Plus subscription to join events?

    No. Subscriptions and passes are only required by the organiser of an event, if the competition contains premium features.

    Does every player in a competition need to use Golfify?

    No. You can add players who cannot use the app as 'inactive' players in the Competition Player Manager. They will still appear in the competition as per normal. You can add their email when you create them so they can recover their account if they do decide to use the app in the future.

     

    We recommend a minimum of one player per grouping to have access to the app, this will give the best 'Live' experience. However, as the host you can add scores for each grouping in the player manager, so in the event a grouping has no active users, you can still add scores.  

    Can you combine multiple rounds into one leaderboard?

    Yes. Combine up to 10 rounds in one leaderboard. Check out the examples to find out more.

    Does Golfify work with the new World Handicap System?

    Yes, you only need to update your handicap index on the app. The app will then generate each players handicap for the day based on the USGA formula if you are outside UK and Ireland, otherwise the Golf England formula is used. If the course rating or slope rating is not available, default values will be used.

    Can I maintain a handicap through Golfify?

    Not at the moment. Ultimately there is a prohibitive cost to enable this. If your handicap has changed you will need to update it before starting a new round. The competition host can also override it.

    Does Golfify support 9 hole courses?

    Yes. In fact, you can customise the holes you play in any order you like using the Hole Selector in the host settings.

     

    If you score as a single grouping, Golfify will automatically adjust your scorecard for any holes not played.
