So here is a summary of how to get a good start:

  1. Decide what type of league you would like to start up?

    The league types currently offered by are:

    • Teams and Flights
      In this set up you can begin a golf league where the entire golf league is assigned to teams. The teams play head-to-head matches with other teams matched against the same flight player within each team. Points will be awarded and tracked for each team and for each flight.

      You will be able to see team results on the team leader board and, you can run reports for the division leader board as well. You will be able to see which teams lead on the points leader board. In addition, for each flight, you will have a flight leader board showing leaders within each flight.

      Here’s an example:

      A three man team would have a "A", "B" and "C" flight. The flights can be arranged in any order, but usually are arranged by handicap so that flights within each team will be matched with golfers of similar handicaps and abilities in other teams.

      Matches are automatically set up by GolfLeague so that "A" vs "A", "B" vs "B" and "C" vs "C" golfers. Each team plays a different team each week until all teams have played all other teams.

      Points will be awarded and the results of all matches are credited to the teams and the individual players. You can run the team leader board report (shows which teams lead), or the flight leader board report (Shows which players lead in the "A", "B" or "C" flight as in our example).

    • Teams Only
      In this scenario, head-to-head matches are set up the same way teams and flights are set up but reports would only show team results.


      Even though flights would not be tracked in this particular start up, a three man team would still have an A, B and C flight. Matches would be A vs A, B vs B and C vs C. The results of these matches would credit points to the team and to the individual player.
    Flights Only:
    • Flights Only
      You can create a league with an unlimited number of flights where there are no head-to-head matches. When you start up a league with this configuration, you can set up an unlimited number of flights, each containing any number of players. The flights could be any division; sort flights by handicap, men, women, adults, juniors or seniors. Players in each flight can compete against other golfers in their own flight. You can set up to award low net score each week, low gross score or award points for hole-by-hole gross or net scores as in a Stableford or Modified Stableford system.
      This golf league type will support any number of golfers in any flight. This arrangement will work for small golf leagues or very large golf leagues.


      Flights can print reports and reward players for low net in each flight or you can award points based on the players score as in the case of a Stableford scoring system.
    Individual Play:
    • Head-to-Head Matches
      In this league type start up, players are matched in head-to-head competition with other players in the league. Since this is an individual play format, there are no teams or flights. Players points earned are tracked for each schedule period. You can set up your league schedule in: quarters, half’s or for the full year. GolfLeague will track points in each of these periods.


      GolfLeague will set up a schedule of matches using the round robin scheduling algorithm, which will match every player against another player each week without repeating a player until all players have been played. Points will be calculated according to your settings for each match, and those points will be credited to that player.

      You can print the points leaderboard each week. Handicaps will be calculated automatically, adjustments to scores can be made automatically and handicap reports will be available for all players.
