We will be utilizing PDGA’s Digital Scorecard for scorekeeping. This will help us keep the process of tallying scores and payouts quicker and easier.
Each card will need to use two scorecards, kept independently of one another. One should/can be the PDGA’s Digital Scorecard and the other a traditional paper scorecard that will be provided. (If everybody on a card decides not to use the digital scorecard, two paper scorecards must be kept by different players.)

The score keeping segment of the PDGA Digital Scorecard is designed to record scores and function with limited internet connectivity. The primary functions that require an internet connection is when the scorekeeper first logs in, adds or removes players and submits scores. If there are issues submitting scores due to connectivity, a “Retry” button will display so the players have the opportunity to find better service and try to resubmit scores.
If scorekeeper records scores in areas of the course with limited internet access, scores will still save to their device but will not show on live scoring. However, when internet connectivity resumes, the app will attempt to save any scores that were previous not updated.
