Record and Track your Golf Scores
Golf Frontier makes it easy to record and track your golf scores and statistics. Recording this information is critical if you wish to establish a golf handicap, or to improve your game through statistical analysis. This walkthrough describes the process of posting an individual golf score using Golf Frontier. You must sign up with Golf Frontier to take advantage of scoring and stat tracking functionality, its free and anyone can join.
Step 1: Choose a Course
To Add a new score, select the Add a Score option from the Game Menu after you have logged in. From the Add New score page, you can use the search box to locate the course you played. The search box allows you to search by course name, address, city and postal code. The course search supports partial names as valid search criteria.
Once you have run the search by clicking the search button, you will be presented with a list of courses that match the specified term(s). If you cannot find the course you are looking for, you can continue searching by entering a new term into the search box. Once you have located your course, choose it by clicking the Select link on the right side of the screen.
Step 2: Choose Parameters
Once you have located the course, you are then prompted to select the tee that you played along with the Holes Played (Front 9, Back 9 or 18 Holes) for the newly posted score. If you do not want to enter in your scorecard hole by hole, you can also choose to only enter the totals. This option makes it faster to add a score, but also less useful, since little game analysis information can be extracted from totals only.
If your friends have allowed it, you can also post scores on their behalf. This is an opt-in feature, and can be set up for each user under their friends page.
Step 3: Enter your Scores
Once you have selected the applicable settings for the score, you can then start entering in your scores and statistics. The scorecard interface allows you to specify eleven distinct aspects of your game for each hole. You can enter in the score, putts, whether you hit the fairway and/or green. You can also record the distance of your tee shot, what club you used for your drive and approach, and whether you had a sand save, your first putt distance, number of chip shots, and total penalty strokes for each hole. These statistics are completely customizable as well, you can remove them from your scorecard via your user profile page.
As new scores are entered, Golf Frontier will calculate statistics, as well as include the score in your handicap calculation. You can return to the score at any time to make updates as needed. Any changes to a previously entered score will automatically be reflected in your career staistics and handicap calculation.
