GLS offers many ways to set league points, and GLS will automatically calculate the points, on-the-fly as you enter weekly results.  There are several types of points available for the league:  1. Individual Points; 2. Team Points; and 3. Match Points (which are actually a form of team points).  Of course, for individual leagues only individual points are available.  You decide how many points are awarded for the following categories.

League Points are set during League Setup. You can decide if Individual Points are combined with Team and Match Points to determine Team Standings. You may want to keep individual points separate.

You can edit "League Points Parameters" after league setup by clicking on the Edit Menu…Edit League Rules. Make the desired changes then click OK, or click CANCEL to close without making any changes.

Available for 18-hole league only.

2  Against the Field Points can be awarded for Individual Low Net for the Week or Team Low Net for the Week. The players or teams compete against all other players or teams. You select how many points are awarded for the player or team with the lowest net score, and the points difference between each place. Ties share the points for the places they hold and are rounded to the nearest point. Example: (20, 2-man teams league). You select Individual Low Net Against the Field with the player scoring the lowest net getting 40 points, and each place below descends by 1 point. There would be a total of 820 points available. The player with the lowest net receives 40 points and the player with the highest net receives 1 point. If 4 players tie for 3rd place, they would split 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th place points equally (38 + 37 + 36 + 35 = 146 / 4 = 36.5.  New for GLS 2005, points are rounded up to the next half point, instead of whole point, allowing for more precision.

A 4-Man Team Bestball Score is determined by taking the bestball score of the 2 team members playing together from one match and adding it to the bestball score of the 2 other team members playing together in the other match. It is not figured as the bestball score of all 4 players.

In the Modified Stableford Scoring System, you play against everyone else in your foursome, or actually everyone else in the league.  The game is based on a point system, where the points you earn are determined by your score on the hole.  How many points a hole is worth can be set by the league and changed at any time, thus the name "Modified" Stableford System.  You can also use the Stableford Scoring System as the basis for individual matches and set the points won as desired.  Example: Best Stableford Score (based on NET or ACTUAL) in a match gets 3 individual points.  You can base the match points on Net or Actual Stableford Scoring just as you would for Low Net or Low Actual Score.

5  You can easily enter Individual and/or Team Points which are not automatically calculated by GLS.  User Defined Points (UD points) are points which are peculiar for your golf league which must be calculated and entered manually. (example:  points for showing up, or points for a hole-in-one)  You can have a combination of GLS calculated points and User Defined Points.  If you select User Defined Points, GLS will provide input boxes for UD points entry.
