What is a "unique invitation link" and why did I receive it?
This unique invitation is how Golf Pad establishes a connection between your Golf Pad app, and Golf Pad Events. By establishing this connection between the app and Events, golfers can view their upcoming tournaments, see tournament details, and begin scoring on the day of the event. Tournament organizers that would like to use live scoring should email their field of golfers. When the emails are received there are two links for the golfers to follow.
1) is to download the Golf Pad app.
2) is a unique invitation link to accept invitation.
It is important to remember that when you receive this email from the organizer, your invitation link is specific to you. You will be asked to confirm your name to establish the connection between your app and the Events platform.
Invitation links should not be forwarded or shared with other golfers.
What should I do now?
