What is a Managed Account?
Are you looking to track scores and handicaps for your golf mates, fourballs or society?
The Managed Account system allows you to track scores for people you know who may not wish to log in to Golfshake and have a full Golfshake account. A Managed Account is an online virtual account which you control and manage adding scores on their behalf, Golfshake will provide the same handicap functionality.
Managed Accounts are created from your My Game section or from within a Golf Group. Using the Group/Society system allows you to then add them to a competition and maintain society results and scores, more information can be found here.
