So, you downloaded GolfStatus. Good decision!
Using GolfStatus can greatly enhance your golf experiences and help you earn rewards from courses and businesses. We want to make your interactions with the application as smooth as possible, so here are a few basics to get you going.
Once you’ve logged into the mobile app, you’ll arrive at the home screen. This is where the magic starts. Most of the time, you are going to want to "Check In" or "Play."
Whether you are practicing, playing, or just stopping by the course for an Arnold Palmer, check in. Check-ins spur serendipitous meetings with friends, mark snapshots of great courses you’ve been to, and capture moments to reflect on in the future.
If you are the sharing type, press the Facebook and Twitter icons to keep your social networks in the loop. Checking in and sharing can result in some great rewards from courses and businesses.
To start a round, press “Play” from the home screen or from a course’s detail page. After selecting your course, selecting or adding players, and choosing whether to use hole-by-hole GPS, press “Play.” Keeping score is simple; just enter your score and swipe to advance to the next hole. You can always jump to a specific hole, or view the full scorecard, using the options located in the lower right-hand corner of the app.
When you finish your round, hit the green checkmark button. Be sure to write a brief message about the round (e.g. Carded my first eagle on hole 11!) and press the Facebook and Twitter icons. After submission, rewards may be available for personal bests, scoring achievements, sharing, and more.
These basics will get you going. However, if you are interested in learning more about the many great features GolfStatus has to offer, be sure to check out our GolfStatus Guide.
