OTHER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES


GOLF SCORECARDS, INC. EDUCATION
“Principles of Scorecard Design”, is a free one hour online course eligible for 1 PGA Education Credit. The course was developed by Golf ScoreCards, Inc. and can be found at www.golfscorecards.com. To earn a credit a PGA member must watch the video and then pass a short online assessment.
Although scorecards are a small budget item, the look and feel of the scorecard communicates volumes about your facility and it’s important to make it as functional and aesthetically pleasing as possible. “Principles of Scorecard Design” goes over each aspect of the scorecard individually, covering everything from how to display combo tees on your grid to whether your scorecard should include a map. The course also reviews the economics of scorecard ordering and what variables affect price. By the time you complete the course, you will have the tools you need to evaluate the design of your scorecard and optimize your order quantity.
