Step by Step Guide

1. Download MiScore on your Mobile

Open the Apple App Store (for iOS devices) or Google Play Store (for Android devices) and type "miscore" in the search field. Tap MiScore to view the app page then tap "Install" or "Get" to download the app. You may need to enter your Apple ID and password to complete the app download.

When the download has finished tap the "Open" button. The MiScore app will launch and you can proceed to use the app. The MiScore app icon will be saved to your mobile device's home screen to launch the MiScore in the future.

2. Add your club and login

Tap the "+" icon and type your golf club or course's name into the search field. Tap your club to select it. Then login with your member username and password. If you are unsure what your member username or password is you can go to your club's website to recover login details or contact your club directly for assistance.

If you are a public player wanting to use the app for social scoring, you will need to make sure you contact the club to register and receive a login to use the app prior to playing. Your login will likely be the email address you registered with and a password provided by the club.

3. Confirm starting hole and playing partner

You must be already registered in a club competition to score with the MiScore App. If you are registered, tap "SCORING" to begin. Confirm your starting hole using the drop down menu. Tap the name of the playing partner that you are scoring for. You will be entering scores for a playing partner in your group and yourself. Tap "CONTINUE TO SCORING" to proceed to score entry.

Currently you can only score for a player partner and yourself according to the current rules of golf. However, in later versions of MiScore this may change subject to the approval of your club or course.

4. Score entry

Enter each player's gross score for each hole using the "P" (for pick-up), "PAR",  "+", and "-" buttons. Adjust the gross score as required then swipe across to proceed to the next hole. If you need to amend a score you can always swipe back to a previous hole. Make sure you enter a score for every hole!

Tapping the "SCORE" value will display your total scorecard with all entries from the round. This is a great feature for checking your scores.

GPS distance
The "TO PIN" or "TO MID" value represents the distance in metres from the pin or middle green in relation to your current position (GPS). If you tap on this value it will take you to an interactive GPS map that visually shows you distances on the fairway with surrounding hazards.

Pace of play

In the top left of the score entry screen there is a helpful pace of play countdown timer that shows you the time you have remaining on each hole. This time can also show how long you have spent on each hole, depending on how your home club has configured the competition. 

5. Check and submit your scores

Check the final scores for your playing partner and yourself. If the totals do not seem correct tap the "NAME" or the "TOTAL" score to view the scorecard. Make sure a score is entered for every hole, otherwise you will not be able to complete the score submission!

If you and your marker both agree on the scores, sign the screen using your finger in the space provided. Tap "Clear" or "Undo" to erase the previous signature and sign again. Under COVID-19 restrictions, you can sign for yourself and your playing partner to avoid contact. NOTE: from August - only the device owner is required to apply a signature for score submission. Please read this notice

Note from July, some Clubs have opted in to allow comp players to submit their own scores - this will be clearly identified on the submission page.
