The ‘Team Hole by Hole’ scores from the ‘Score Entry Method’ dropdown list allows you to enter a single ‘Hole by Hole’ score for each team. Also, it offers you to enter net scores manually by setting the ‘Net Score Entry’ to ‘Manual.’

Once you select, the ‘Elimination’ checkbox will appear by default which allows you to eliminate the scores of a player in case you used them twice.

Peoria handicapping present in the ‘Handicap Method’ of ‘Other Options’ allows you to identify any number of holes to be used as players enter their scores.

Then accordingly, it will compute the player or team handicap.
