The golf season might be starting out slower than normal in some parts of the country, but active season for score posting will be underway coast-to-coast beginning May 1st, 2014. Remember “active season” reflects the quality of the course conditions where you’re playing not where you live. For example if you played down south over the winter there’s a good possibility that course was “active” and you should post any rounds played.
Golfers playing in British Columbia and Alberta have been able to post scores since March 1st, while active season for seven other provinces kicked off in mid-April. New Brunswick will officially open their season on May 1st.
In addition to Canadian golfers posting their scores online at www.golfcanada.ca and at member club kiosks, Golf Canada members can also post their scores quickly and conveniently from their mobile devices on the Score Centre Mobile App.
The Score Centre Mobile App provides members with an option to post and track their scores on the go. It’s currently available on iOS and Android platforms and can be downloaded directly from Apple’s App Store or Android’s Google play. Golfers can also download the app by visiting www.golfcanada.ca/mobile on their mobile device.
This past winter hundreds of thousands of scores were posted online and each year over 7-million scores are posted by Golf Canada members through the Score Centre Mobile App and online.
In Canada, the active season in each province is as follows:
BC = Mar. 1 – Nov. 15
