Can I Use 18Birdies to Run My Weekly League?

Having a regular golf group is a great way to keep that competitive edge while staying close with your golfing crew.

We often will get requests from golf league organizers asking if it is possible to run a weekly golf league while solely using the 18Birdies app...the answer is YES!

This means less work for you each week, Tournament Organizer.

Invite Members | Adding a Player to Your Group

From the Group Details page, tap Invite Members

From here, you have a few different options. You can either invite from your existing 18Birdies friends list (Invite from friends list), search and add from the 18Birdies database of users (Search 18Birdies users), or invite from your device contact list/ address book (Search my contact list).

Once you have invited the players and the group is formed, you will then need to create the first tournament.

    The Tournament Code will automatically be copied to your clipboard.

When you hit Post, a notification will automatically be sent to the entire private group that you just created. The players will then have the option to accept the tournament invitation or decline the tournament invitation. 

The players will then automatically be added to the tournament and you won't have to worry about anything until the day of.

When the day of the tournament rolls around, each player will just need to start their tournament round and you should be good to go. The tournament leaderboard will be live and accessible for all participants. 

For any of the players who did not play in the weekly tournament, they can enter the Gallery Code and follow along with the days play, or view the results after the round.
