How do I Enter my score?
Adding your score is easy -- just follow these steps
Find the course you played
- Click on the Find a Course Button on the toolbar at the top of the screen to bring up the Course Locator
- Enter the part of the course name in the course name field.
(example: if you played Virginia Oaks type in oak in the course name field.
- Click on search button. This will display all the courses that contain the string you typed anywhere in the course name.
TIP: The less you type in the more likely you are to find the course in case it has been entered with a slightly different spelling. I usually leave the city and state blank.
- IF the course you played is not shown, try searching again entering only the state. If you still can't find the course you may have to add it using the link at the bottom of the search results screen
- Alternatively to quickly find a course you've played before you can click the Previously Played Courses link on the left sidebar. This will display all courses you have played before. You must be logged in to see the previously played courses. But anyone can search for a golf course and read reviews etc. NOTE: The initial sort of previously played courses is by number of times played -- this is so if you play a "home" course often it will show at the top. You can change the sort by clicking the arrows in the column headers.
Select the Tees you played
- Click on the Enter Score link next to the course name
- After clicking on the Enter Score link next to the course name, you will be shown a list of tees that are in the system for the course you played.
- If the tees you played are listed, verify the slope and rating are correct, and then click on the Enter Score Link to bring up a copy of the scorecard for entry.
- IF the tees you played are not listed or the slope or rating are incorrect, you must enter the information for the tees. Use the link on the bottom of the tee listing (below instructions) that says Add details for a different set of tees. This will require you have a copy of the scorecard since, you must enter yardages and hole by hole handicap.
Enter your Score
- Enter the date played. The default is today. You can enter old rounds out of order -- as long as you put the date in correctly for each round your handicap will be calculated correctly
- If this is the second round you played today set the round number to 2 ( The round number is only used when you play 2 rounds in the same day, it is usually just 1)
- If you are a member of a group, you may enter scores for other members of your group. Use the drop down to seelct the player whose score you want to enter.
- Enter score for each hole using the tab key to move between fields. The total will update as you enter each score.
- If you don't have the card and only know the total score, you can enter that, but the service won't use this in your detailed average number of pars, bogeys etc.
- Click on the Save Score button
Note:You can also enter a score from the course home page by clicking on the Enter Score link next to the tees you played.

PLAYER VS GOLF COURSE
PEG CHARTS has developed a proprietary formula to rate an executive golf course. The formula is specific to executive golf courses and can be applied to any executive golf course anywhere in the world. After a PEG CHARTS Course Rating is established it is possible for a player to create a personal PEG CHARTS Handicap by simply providing some explicit information about each round he plays. A PEG CHARTS Handicap will establish how many strokes a player may deduct from his score in order to make it likely that he will match par for the round. A secondary benefit of having a PEG CHARTS Handicap is that it allows executive golf course players of disproportionate golfing ability to play together and each have an equal possibility to win the match. Up until now executive golf course players who wanted to have a match with a fair and even chance to win the top prize had to resort to random methods of odds making on the first tee box to level the playing field. At best this was only an arbitrary negotiation to determine who got strokes on which holes. A member’s PEG CHARTS Handicap is updated after each executive golf course 9 hole round he posts in the data base. As a player’s proficiency changes his PEG CHARTS Handicap will change accordingly to always keep a current, accurate and unbiased scoring profile.
