App Store Description

Improve your game and compete with friends! GOLF-A-THON helps you understand your handicap and forecast the impact of your scores.

Organize fun golf challenges between your friends and utilize data from your USGA GHIN handicap account to automatically determine competition results.

Challenge your friends to decrease their handicap over a season, see who can achieve the lowest Eclectic score over a season, or create a multi-day team tournament during your next golf get-away.

Play games during a round such as Sixes, Sixes-Match Play or Nines. Flexible scoring options allows customization of specials (junk bets) and other game aspects. Optimized payouts show the minimum number of payment transactions when settling-up.

Accumulate Achievements for exceptional play and then view them in your Trophy Case.

* Play different challenge types such as Handicap Improvement, Eclectic (Ringers Tournament) with skins or multi-team tournaments utilizing Stableford scoring
