Membership ID

The Membership ID is a unique password, entered by our golf members when registering with StrokeAverage.com. The combination of a member´s name and Membership ID is used to gain access to view the member´s golf statistics in the statistics area, without logging into their account. This enables a member to permit individuals (for example, a golf coach) to view their golf statistics, whilst not allowing anyone access to their account in any way. It is the member´s own responsibility to whom they provide their name, and Membership ID. If the member suspects unauthorized use of their Membership ID, they should log into their account and change it at the earliest opportunity. See the Terms and Conditions if you require further legal information.

Handicap Systems

Due to the global golf nature of StrokeAverage.com and the numerous different evolving golf handicap systems across the world (in both men´s golf and women´s golf), it is not possible to provide golf handicap tools on StrokeAverage.com. Statistically, it is far more accurate for golfers to monitor their golf coaching and golf game improvement through their Stroke Average.

Golf Measurement Units and Bands

All golf measurement units on StrokeAverage.com can be both entered and viewed in yards / feet or metres. Measurement bands include any distances which are further than the first distance but shorter than or equal to the second distance. For example, the band “2 - 4 feet” includes any measurement further than 2 feet and shorter than or equal to 4 feet. The measurement unit conversion calculations used on StrokeAverage.com are:

  • 1 metre = 1.0936133 yards
  • 1 metre = 3.2808399 feet
  • 1 yard = 0.9144 metres
  • 1 yard = 3 feet
  • 1 foot = 0.3048 metres
  • 1 foot = 0.33333333 yards

Technical Jargon about Golf Statistics

Golf statistics can be confusing, misleading and inaccurate if not correctly recorded and analysed by players or golf coaches. They are inter-related statistics, which means if one changes, it influences others. An infinite number of inter-related statistics combinations means it is impossible to build predetermined computer algorithms that perform golf analysis. Expert human judgement is needed when assessing player golf performances using statistics.
