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
There are two ways to choose a course, If you are adding a score for a new course, you can use the Post Score option on the Main Menu (under My Game) or perform a search using the Course Locator to find the course that you played. You can also use the Quick Add Scores panel for round configurations that you have entered in the past.
The Post Score option is a linear, wizard-like interface that leads you through the process of selecting a course. You choose the Country, Region and City for that course before you are presented with a list of courses to select.
The Course Locator allows you to search for a specific course in a much more flexible manner. You can perform a search on the Course Name, Course Type, Address or proximity to a Zip/Postal Code in addition to the standard Country, Region and City options. and a link to Post Score is provided for each search result returned by the Course Locator.
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) and Scoring Model (Simple or Full) for the newly posted score.
- The Simple scoring model allows you to report aggregated totals for each statistical category. This includes your total score, number of putts, greens in regulation and fairways hit.
- The Full scoring model allows you to record your scores on a hole by hole basis, including your drive distance, the clubs you used to tee off with and hit your approach shots, and whether you hit the green in regulation or drove the ball in the fairway on a particular hole.
Both Scoring Models allow you to compile your statistics and provide you with a historical reference about previous posted scores. Some statistics are not tracked when using the Simple Scoring Model, however a Golf Frontier Handicap (based on the USGA or CONGU Handicap system), can be calculated using either Scoring Model.
Step 3: Enter your Scores
Once you have selected the applicable settings for this posted score, you can then start entering in your scores and statistics. The scorecard interface allows you to specify nine 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 or any penalty strokes on the given hole.
