Golf leagues run the gamut. One league might be highly competitive while another is casual and concentrating on fellowship and fun. A league might have mostly players in their 30′s and 40′s or have a whole range of ages. There are men’s leagues, women’s leagues and mixed leagues. Some leagues will have beginners and others will have highly skilled golfers while others will have a mix. What’s your league like?
If you’re puzzled about how to start or run your golf league, our 22-minute video, How Best to Run a Golf League, might be just what you need. The video will help you…
- determine your league type
- games or playing format recommended for each league type
- a case study
- handling seasonal challenges encountered by leagues (golfer absences, incomplete rounds, change in number of players / teams, rain-outs)
The video will help you figure out what kind of league you have using the League Quadrant tool. The League Quadrant tool helps you decide if your league is a high or low competition league. Additionally the tool will help you conclude whether your league is a high or low diversity league in terms of skill levels. Determining your golf league’s type leads you to the next step of deciding which golfing play formats most appropriately fit your league type.
Play formats include team-based individual match play, team match play, Stableford, best ball, skins and more. In addition to solving a problem through the case study, the video will walk you through solutions for some of the challenges leagues face during their season.

What are some of your hassles as a manager of a golf group (Please name hassles you face by commenting on this post. We may be able to add features to lessen those as well.)?
- manually inputting and maintaining member information
- collecting dues from members
- communicating with the group
- lack of an easy way for members to access needed documents
- being the conduit for member-to-member contact
Golf Group Manager gives you the online tools to…
- Host a member area with password protected login (each member has unique password). This means your golf group can carry on its business securely and privately behind a login screen.
- Create a membership database with information (addresses, phone numbers, etc.) added by members and/or administrators. This means less work for the administrator(s) as the membership can do much of the data entry for their contact information and update it.
- Communicate via email – or messaging within the online group area. This means the administrator has a central console from which to contact members either by email or messaging and members can do the same.
- Collect membership dues. This means administrator’s time collecting fees is minimized and streamlined.
- Store documents which members can access (registration forms, newsletters, special event fliers, etc.). This means you can store and make documents available to your members online in a secure way.
- Create a member forum where members can carry on online conversations. This means you have a safe and secure forum that cannot be found by anyone except your members who log in to gain access.
- Allow membership to find substitutes or playing partners. This means that the burden of substitutions can be shifted to players as well as giving players the means to find contact information and communicating with other group members to create foursomes for a golf outing.
- Export information to various file types. This means that your information can be exported for creating a report or for importing into other programs such as GolfSoftware.com’s League Manager, Tournament Manager and Handicap Systems.

GolfSoftware.com University is here!
When it comes to running a golf league, with 20 years of experience under our belt, we’ve learned what works, what doesn’t and have identified the challenges most often faced during a season. Leveraging this experience we’ve developed our flagship course for GolfSoftware.com University…
League Management 201: How Best to Run a League
- Determining League Type
- Games Recommended for Each League Type
- Handling Seasonal Challenges
Format: Online Webinar
Duration: 1 Hour
Synopsis: The course will start by introducing you to the League Quadrant, a tool you can use to identify your league type (eg Hi-Diversity/Hi-Competition). Next you’ll see the games we recommend for each type of league and we’ll conclude with recommendations on how best to handle seasonal challenges that ALL leagues face (eg decrease/increase teams, incomplete rounds, golfer absences, rainouts). And as time allows we’ll conduct a Q&A session at the end of the course.
If you’re a league manager who’s struggling to find the best format for your league, who’s struggling for the best way to handle common seasonal challenges or who’d just plain benefit from some fresh ideas, this course is for you!
