Important Announcement - Golf Australia Approval of Self-Score Submission method.
For the past two years MiClub and Golf Australia have been exploring with The R&A, the permanent adoption of "self-scoring" for competition scores. During the COVID period, millions of competition scores were submitted using this method.
MiClub has now received advice from Golf Australia, further to Golf Australia consulting The R&A, that the MiScore app's self-scoring method is permissible under the Rules of Golf, effective immediately. Any queries on this matter can be directed to Golf Australia's Head of Rules, Simon Magdulski (email@example.com).
Golf Australia has advised that it will treat the MiScore app self score submission configuration selected by your club to be its official record of the verification requirements for scores submitted via the MiScore app in club competitions.
This will be well received by the many clubs and members whom have expressed their preference to return to the self-scoring method for the significant benefits it delivers.
MiClub is planning to upgrade all clubs that use the MiScore app to activate the self-scoring method in conjunction with a new hole by hole score comparison feature on Monday 17 July, 2023. An instruction kit for clubs to communicate to members will be provided on Wednesday 5 July, 2023.
The new hole by hole score comparison feature validates the individual hole scores for both player and partner prior to signatures and score submission.
