If you had to choose one word for your attendees to describe your future golf tournament, what would it be?

Exciting? Fulfilling? How about… FUN!

After all, a fun tournament means happy golfers and likely better fundraising results for your charity. 

There are many ways you can plan a fun golf tournament; from contest packages to raffles to unique sponsorship activations – all of these efforts are sure to keep your players smiling. 

But have you considered one of the most important aspects of planning a fun and exciting charity tournament?

Live Scoring!

Discover our guide to executing Live Scoring with golf tournament software, and why it should be an essential part of making your golf tournament fun for your players. 

What is Live Scoring?

Live Scoring is a digital form of keeping score that allows you to get rid of paper scoring altogether. With Live Scoring, you can let your players input and track scores LIVE on their smartphones, so you can put a leaderboard on your tournament website to track the excitement! 

How Will it Help Make my Tournament Fun?

Live Scoring can up the excitement of your charity tournament by allowing players to track how they’re doing in comparison to others in real-time. This creates an atmosphere of friendly competition and ups the ante among players who came to win! Plus, they won’t be stuck dealing with frustrating paper scoring that can get damaged, lost or forgotten. 

… And it doesn’t hurt that manually counting scores will be wiped from your to-do list! 

Contact-Free Safety

Keep your golfers and staff safe from unneccesary contact by having golfers enter scores on their own mobile device. This will eliminate the need for collecting and handling paper score cards at the end of the round. 

Digital Sponsor Advertisements

Event Caddy's Live Scoring gives you the opportunity to include custom banner advertisements on mobile devices and the leaderboard screen. This is a very unique and effective way to provide brand recognition for your corporate supporters and raise more money when offered as part of your sponsorship packages.
