Configuration Options

The following features can be configured and utilized for each pool.

Scoring – Strokes, Earnings, Best Per Round
When viewing results for your pool, you can sort by either your team’s total strokes to par, dollar earnings, individaul rounds, or combination of all the best rounds from each of your top golfers.

# of Entries
Unlimited! There is no limit to the number of people that can join your pool. If your pool grows into the 1,000s of people we’ll help make sure it runs smoothly with custom views.

# of Golfers Picked
By default we have everyone pick 6 golfers, but you can fully customize your picksheet and let people pick 2 golfers or 50 golfers or anything in between.

# Golfers Scores Used
You can choose to count only the top 4 of 6 from each team, for example. This helps when some of your golfers don’t make the cut … by only using only your best golfers you minimize the impact that those golfers have on your overall score.

Cut Options
If a golfer doesn’t make the cut, he can be assigned an 80 for rounds 3 and 4 or the highest score from the rest of the field for rounds 3 and 4. The same rules apply to WD/MDF/DNS golfers.

Projected Earnings
Throughout the tournament projected earnings are recalculated based on the current leaderboard.

Picksheet Tier Setup
Golfers can be separated into different tiers on the picksheet based on world rankings, or fully customized to place golfers into indiviual tiers. For example, you can split the field into the 3 different groups of golfers. The first group has the 10 best golfers in the field, the second group has the 11th – 30th best, and the remainder of the field is in the 3rd group.

# Selections Required in Each Tier
You can choose to have 1 golfer chosen from each tier, or 10 golfers chosen from only 1 tier. Or you could customize like 1 golfer from Tier 1, 2 golfers from tier 2, and 3 from the last tier. Up to you.

Round by Round Scoring
Players in your pool can be ranked based on their team of golfers individual daily rounds. This is fun if you want to have different prizes based on each individual round.

Leaderboard View
This will give you a summarized view of your pool by hiding all of the individual golfers and only displaying each team’s total score and the position in the rankings.

Signup Deadline
If for some reason you want to allow people to join your pool and edit their teams after the first tee time, you can extend the signup deadline to a date of your choosing.

Pricing

$20 per pool, paid only by the pool admin.

Foursomes are free! Pools with 4 or fewer entries are free.

This fee is to provide online setup and live scoring. This fee is in no way related to gambling. We do not manage any gambling related activity on our site.

The Finer Details for Pool Admins and Participants

Pick Locks
Entrants are not be allowed to add or update teams after the first tee off, unless you extend the default signup deadline. Only the admin is able to add or delete teams after that time. If someone’s picks need to change after this time, the admin is responsible to create a new team for them and delete their old team.

Withdrawals 
It is the responsibility of pool admins and participants to monitor player withdrawals leading up to the tournament, and update your teams if one of your golfers withdraws from the tournament.

Sort Options
It is up to each pool admin to decide how to score your pool. There are several options on the View page, so make sure your participants know which of the sort options are in play for your pool.

Playoff Holes
Should golf tournaments end in a playoff, the golfers in the playoff will not receive credit for the strokes earned or lost during the playoff.

Tiebreakers 
Pool admins must decide on a tiebreaker, if desired. There is a field for everyone to guess the final score of the golfer that wins the tournament. This score will not include any playoff holes. Here are some additional ideas to manage tiebreakers:

  • Every winner is treated evenly
  • Everyone guesses the final score for the golfer that wins the Tournament
  • Have a scorecard playoff with the best players on the team. For example, if I have Tiger at -5 and Rory at -3, and you have Bubba at -4 and Phil at -4, then we both have -8 but I win because when we match my best against your best mine is better.
