ADOPTION OF THE ONEGOLF/MiCLUB SCORING SYSTEM FOR ACTRVGA

All Members Please Note:

Sometime ago the ACTRVGA Committee voted to adopt the OneGolf/MiClub booking and scoring system to replace the older methods of booking-in, then recording results used by members and Committee. Many of you will be familiar with OneGolf/MiClub, as it has been adopted and in use at the majority of golf clubs in the ACT and NSW.

The ACTRVGA will be implementing this system locally first, so that when the 2023 AVGU National Championships are here in November we will be ready to use MiScore/MiTournament for bookings and scoring in a major tournament event.

The committee is currently collecting membership data so that MiClub can build the ACTRVGA booking and scoring system to enable up to 250 members access to MiScore. Implementation will hopefully be by mid-March 2023. The data currently being collected only includes 2022/2023 Financial Members and Life Members, and it is this group of 250 who will be given the opportunity to have access to this scoring system.

MiClub is developing this booking and scoring system just for the ACTRVGA and once live can only be used for and at the courses we play at throughout the year. Once in place, members will be able to use their smartphones for bookings and then to record their scores at the courses where they are playing.

No cards will be required for App users and scores will be relayed to Golflink quickly and efficiently as opposed to the current system of entering each player’s scores manually by members of the committee. Additionally, we will have the results each week automatically calculated, published and available online.

Most members would be aware that the MiClub/MiScore system is a subscription-based service. If the golf club you are a member of is paying for your MiScore App subscription as part of your membership fees, access to the scoring system is just for the use at your home club. Therefore, you will not be able to use the App at all of the courses where the ACTRVGA members play throughout the year.

Once the ACTRVGA MiClub/MiScore system is up and running, members who already have access to the Australia wide MiScore App on their smartphones need do nothing but enjoy the convenience, those members that do not have this access and wish to use it, will have to download and pay for the App. The annual subscription fee is currently $19.49.

For those who choose not to use a smartphone and the MiScore system, cards will be available at each course each week, along with a laptop computer. These members will need to enter their scores into Golflink manually themselves. A committee member will be there to assist but they will not enter you scores for you.

When the time comes to implement the system we really would encourage all members to use the MiScore smartphone system.

The committee will keep you posted on the progress that we are making towards the new start sheet and scoring system.
