Automatic League Scheduler
The League Scheduler automatically pairs teams, rotates courses, and sets tee times \ start holes for your league. You also have the option to manually schedule team pairings, set courses, and tee times. To view the Automatic League Scheduler…from the Setup menu, choose “Automatic Scheduling”. The Automatic League Scheduler displays the match, tee time, and course played for each event. The first column displays the event number, the second column the event’s date, the third column the type of event, and remaining columns display each match in teetime order.
Use the following steps to automatically set your league schedule:
Example: To enter a position night for event #8, double-click the “Type” cell for event #8. In the “Event Type” box, put the dot beside the “Manual Pairing with custom description” option, and type Position in the box. You will now be able to manually pair teams for your position night. Click the Manually Pair Teams for event 8 button, to pair teams. See Manual League Scheduler for more information.
Note: If your league has a split season, the Scheduler does not need to know about a split. You can set a split at any time. See Split Season for more information.
League Manager allows your league to play on any number of courses. The available courses are displayed in the “COURSE# TO PLAY” list. You must specify a course for League Manager to function properly. League Manager uses the ratings and slopes of each course to calculate handicaps. Also, course pars and hole handicaps are used to calculate points, pars, birdies, eagles, skins, etc. If you do not specify a correct rating, slope, hole handicaps, and pars for each course\tee your league plays, the LEAGUE MANAGER WILL NOT calculate points and handicaps correctly. If you need to add or edit a course, click the Courses button. See Entering Courses for further information.
Note: If your league plays 3 or more courses you will need to manually specify which course the league plays on a given event. See Manual League Scheduler for further information.
Note: If your league plays 3 or more courses on the same event you will need to manually specify which courses each match plays on a given event. See Manual League Scheduler for further information.
Set Tee Times
After you close the “Automatic Course and Tee Assignment” form the “Start Tee Time” form will appear. If your league has tee times, type the start tee time and the time increment between tee-offs. Time increments are entered in minutes and seconds. If your league runs a shotgun start (each match starts on a different hole), check “Shotgun Start” and enter the hole the first pairing will start on. League Manager will automatically mix tee times and start holes so that each team has an equal opportunity to play different tee times and start holes.
Note: If your league does not have tee times or start holes just ignore this form. You always have the option of NOT displaying tee times and start holes on reports.
To print the League Schedule, click the Print button. You can alter the appearance of the schedule by selecting options on the Utility and Display menu. For example, you can change the font size, hide pairings for manually paired events, or even export the schedule to Excel or HTML format if necessary.
