Points Setup for Golf League Secretary from Golfsoft® ...

Setup individual, team, and match league points from the ...
"League Points Control Panel"


The league points awarded for individual and team matches are set in the League Points Control Panel.  For "per-hole" league points you can select to "carry-over" halved holes or split the points.  When the scores are entered, Golf League Secretary will calculate the points for each match.

The point categories that are disabled are for 18-hole leagues which allow you to setup separate matches (nassau matches) on each nine in addition to points for the total match.  Since only one nine is played, 9-hole leagues only have points for the total match.  You can setup "Points Against the Field" for Individual or Team Low Net or Actual Score.  This means each player and/or team is playing against all the other players and/or team.

Also notice at the bottom of the form, "Accommodate User-Defined Points (manual input)."  When using the Hole-by-Hole Method (recommended) you can now easily enter Individual and/or Team Points which are not automatically calculated by GLS.  User Defined Points (UD points) are points which are peculiar to your golf league and must be calculated and entered manually. (example:  points for showing up, or points for a hole-in-one, or points on number 6 if you keep it out of the water, etc...)  You can have a combination of GLS calculated points and User Defined Points.  If you select User Defined Points, GLS will provide input boxes for UD points entry.

You can setup "Modified Stableford Points" for Individual Low Net per hole or Actual Score per hole.  In the Modified Stableford Scoring System, you play against everyone else in the league.  The game is based on a point system, where the points you earn are determined by your score on the hole.  How many points a hole is worth can be set by the league and changed at any time, thus the name "Modified" Stableford System.  Also, you can select up to 2 "Joker Holes" which "change the stakes" and provide an interesting challenge.  Joker holes are holes which are worth double, triple or even more points by assigning a "Multiplier" to that hole.  (See Figure 2)

You can also use the Stableford Scoring System as the basis for individual matches and set the points won as desired.  (See Figure 1)  You can base the match points on Net or Actual Stableford Scoring just as you would for Low Net or Low Actual Score.  (Example: Competitor with the Best Total Stableford Score Net in a match gets 4 individual points,  Best Total Stableford Score Actual in a match gets 2 individual points.)   In other words, the points earned are not the actual Stableford points a player scores, but a set number of points for having the best Stableford score.  If the two opponents have identical Stableford scores, they split the points...

You can set up Team Per Hole Points based on Low Net, Low Actual, Bestball Net, and Bestball Actual.  As with individual per-hole points you can select to "carry-over" halved holes or split the points.  Teams can also match their combined Net or Actual score Against the Field.  (See Figure 3).

On the "Options Tab" below, you can add Individual Points to Team Points for the purpose of establishing league standings, or you can keep Individual Points separate and use only Team Points for league standings.  Also, you can select whether or not individual points earned by a substitute player can be earned by the player and/or team the substitute is playing for.
