That may be 'what' it does, but I asked 'HOW' it does that! Are you suggesting that the phone location of a card, where scores are being entered, is checked for proximity to the course, rejecting it if not close? So a delayed entry of cards from a 'tour' would likely fail? If so, the process is fraught with rejection chances that should be covered by other processes within the system - registration with the club of intention to put a card in for example.It prevents players simply entering scores via the EG App when they haven’t even visited the location of the course where they have purported to play at (I am surprised that you aren’t aware of that if you have any WHS knowledge). This prevents false, non existent scores being posted on the portal - clearly cheating to falsify their handicap.
I suspect though that you are aware of this and are merely trolling and so will stop feeding you now.
And no, not trolling! Just trying to extract what you really mean by geo-fencing. I've not encountered the issue! It's not something I consider part of WHS - but is APP (which I rarely use) related!
