# golf scorecard

i am trying to get a formula to score a golf scorecard where you put in the score for each hole and the program sorts out the score say if a par 4 is played as par and index is 4 and the handicap is 8 player does not get a shot on hole so he only scores a 4, and 2 points if he gets a shot on the hole he would score 4, and 3 points this would

@dawesy In words such a formula would be:

(Par + 2 + Strokes Received - Score) but not less than zero.

Attached a simple version of a such a scorecard

# Re: golf scorecard

Hi Riny tried to set up what you sent but no go think it needs a more complicated solution
Ian

# Re: golf scorecard

@dawesy How complicated? You asked for a formula that takes Par, Stroke Index and Playing HCP into account. It can not be more complicated than that. Can you elaborate a bit more with regard how you want to use this formula and why it doesn't work for you?

# Re: golf scorecard

How does it work when a player gets more than one shot a hole as some of our social players get up to 2 shots a hole on the index
Thanks Ian

# Re: golf scorecard

@dawesy Ooops! Forgot about that. Changed the formula to allow for up to three strokes over par.

# Re: golf scorecard

Hi attached is a copy of the scorecard i wish to use as you see there are a number of players and i am not sure how to insert your formula the one you sent me works ok except for someone who doesn't get a shot on a particular hole i would be very appreciative if you could work out to the formula to work on my scorecard

Sincerly hoping  Ian

# Re: golf scorecard

@dawesy You need to incorporate the "strokes received" formula into the overall points calculation. To calculate all in one formula is possible but the formula becomes quite complex. Better to add a row for each player where the points per hole are calculated and then added up in the end. You can alway hide these extra rows if you want.

I took the liberty of changing some formats in your sheet 🙂

# Re: golf scorecard

Hi just received your reply had a quick look and looks good will continue with the rest when I get time and let you know how I go
Thanks for your input hope i don't mess things
Cheers Ian

# Re: golf scorecard

Again thank you
Ian

# Re: golf scorecard

@dawesy Glad to hear it worked!

# Re: golf scorecard

Thanks could not have done it without you Thanks again
Ian

# Re: golf scorecard

Hi there again after what you did for me with the handicap formula which is working great thank you again, i was wondering if it possible to highlite the highest number in a column say points or par score
Regards Ian Dawes

# Re: golf scorecard

@dawesy When you say "the highest number in a column", do you mean best result. I.e. highest points or lowest score.

Exactly which cells should be highlighted? Can you give an example of a sheet you would want to do this on? If you haven't already done so, look into Conditional Formatting.

# Re: golf scorecard

no luck with conditional formatting. yes highest points or lowest score. Columns w and x have copied a sheet hope you can read it don't know i i downloaded ok

@dawesy You just uploaded a bunch of text. Please upload a file like you used to and indicate which cell you want to highlight.

# Re: golf scorecard

Hi Riny sorry about the mess i sent hopefully this is better have attached a file of a scorecard if you can see this i have tried to highlite the highest and lowest scores i the following columns ( W which is total score to par ) and ( X which is total  points ) hope i explained i ok his  im

hanks

Ian

# Re: golf scorecard

@dawesy I added some conditional formatting to the last three columns. By the way, I moved the points out of column W. Otherwise CF will be a complete mess when you try to format both score and points. See if this works for you.

# Re: golf scorecard

Hi it appears to work thank you could you tell me is it a formula or conditioning formatting which ever could you send me how you work it out if that is possible as i would like to do the same in columns L and V if that can be done easily i am not sure how to set the formatting up
Thanks be much appreciated Ian
