How Stixlink Golf Tournaments Work

Stixlink golf tournaments are based on Chicago or Stableford-style quota scoring system where each hole played is scored (aces, eagles, birdies, pars, bogeys, etc) with a point value determined by the tournament organizer at setup. Each golfer carries a quota that is based on their handicap and the course/tees that they play - using USGA handicapping rules and calculations. The first round quotas of all Stixlink golf tournaments are based on each golfer's current handicap index. After the first round, the prior round performance is used to determine the current round quota depending upon the golf course and tees played. Each round may have a positive (quota goes up) or negative (quota goes down) adjustment depending if the net points earned for the prior round was positive or negative.

Organizing Golf Tournaments

At this time, all Stixlink golf tournaments are by invitation only. The easiest way to get started is to organize your own Stixlink golf tournament for you and your friends. To get started follow these three easy steps:

  1. Download the Stixlink app for your smartphone and create a free account.
  2. Start a new golf tournament from the Leaderboards screen using the action button at the top-left of the screen.
  3. Invite anyone to play with you by choosing them from your address book or typing in their email address via the Invite Friend action.

Stixlink will send your friend an invitation via email along with links to download the Stixlink App if they don't have it already. Once your friend accepts the invitation, their status will change from Pending (P) to Active. Anyone who has been invited to play in your golf tournament may invite others to play. If your friend declines the invitation you will see a 'D' next to their name in the leaderboard.

Playing in Golf Tournaments

Playing in a Stixlink golf tournament is easy. Stixlink only requires the Course Name, Course Slope and Course Rating (for the tees that you played) so no complicated score-card entry is necessary and Stixlink remembers the last course you played. To enter your round:

  1. Click on the Play tab at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Type in the name, course slope and course rating of the golf course you played (if changed from the last time you played).
  3. Stixlink defaults to a par 72 course assuming all holes are par four (4). Single tap to increase par for the hole or double-tap to decrease par for the hole.
  4. Enter your score for each hole by single-tapping to auto-fill your score to par for the hole. Additional single-taps will increase your score while double-tapping will decrease your score.

Once you have entered in all of your scores, click the Post Score button at the top-right of the screen. Stixlink takes care of the rest and calculates your course-handicap, quota, adjusted gross score, net score and net points. You can view your current standings on the Leaderboards screen after posting your round.
