Why would we? USD19.99 p.a. and Handy Cap is free.

Handy Cap has been brushed from using Australian Golf handicapping information and has been forced to end..

This notice came up the app today.

Shocking news for the guy running it after all the hassle he had a month ago to get it up and running again

That notice appeared to be somewhat dated, referring to the earlier problems. I wonder if it's due to internet problems and so many other sites just crawling along. Like MyGov grinding to a halt. The last the Gov would want to do is admit that NBN hasn't got a hope in hell of handling all the extra traffic.

It will be all about revenue. If GA can't make money out of it, they won't support it. So they've killed access to the data, and will develop their own app, apparently.

 

When the function exists and was already in use.

 

Money grabbing arseholes.

Golf Australia regretfully advises that it is unable to continue supplying Australian golf club member data to the Handy Cap app.
Golf Australia had been in talks with the application's developer to acquire Handy Cap in order that use of the app could continue.
However, these talks broke down.
While Golf Australia apologises to those who use the app regularly, it also asks that people understand the reasons behind this decision.
Golf Australia chairman Andrew Newbold said: "The integrity of our handicap service to members is paramount.
“Any threats to the security of that information might have far-reaching consequences for not only Golf Australia, but for our members as well.
“It is vital to the future of grass-roots golf in Australia that we strengthen our position in this area."
Golf Australia understands the disruption this move has caused and that there is now a gap in the marketplace.
While the evolving Covid-19 situation requires our focus, Golf Australia is actively working towards the development of an app for Australian golfers.

If GA do as 'good' a job with their new app, as they have for golflink then:
1. It probably won't work, &
2. If it does, it will be flooded with ads and will be impossible to use on a phone.

They don't seem to be able to get anything right with computer interfacing.
