Mobile Golf Scorer™ offers a variety of Games you can play on a Round:

For any number of Players:

  • Stroke Play Competition: The Players compete by comparing the Strokes they make. 
  • Stableford  Competition: The Players compete by comparing the Stableford Points they make. 
  • Par Competition: The Players play against the Par of the Course: if they shoot a Par, they tie the Hole, with a Birdie or better they win the Hole and with a Bogey or worse they loose the Hole. The result is like a Matchplay against the Course.
  • Bingo-Bango-Bongo: This is a fun game in which 3 Points can be earned on each Hole as follows: The First ball on the green (Bingo) earns 1 point, the Ball closest to the pin once everyone is on the green (Bango) also 1 point and the first ball in the hole (Bongo) earns 1 point as well. The player that is the furthest away must play first.

Players earn Points as follows: the best score 6 Points, the second best Score 4 Points, the third best score 2 Points and the worst (highest) Score no Point. In the case of a tie between Players, the points for the Scores are evenly split. (Example: Player A scores 3, Player B scores 4, Player B scores 4 and Player C scores 6 - player A gets 6 Points, Players B and C split 4+2 Points between each other and each gets 3 Points, Player C gets no Point).
  • Four Ball Las Vegas: A Team game 2 against 2. On each hole, the team players arrange their two scores to make the lowest possible two digit number. Example: On team A, one team member has a 4, the other a 5. The two member team score for the hole would be a 45. The points per hole is determined by the difference between the two team scores. If team A scores make a 45 and team B scores make a 55, the difference is 10 points. 55-45=10. Team A would win 10 points for the hole. Attention: Points pile up quickly playing this game.

In Settings-Others you can determine if you want to calculate the Results of the Four Ball Games (Four Ball-Best Ball, Four Ball-Aggregate, Four Ball-High Ball and their combinations) either by Strokes or by Stableford Points. This makes a difference, if Players have no Stableford Points but a different number of Strokes.
