Competitions - Prizes (Video)

Modified on Mon, 11 Jul 2022 at 02:42 PM




The newly developed Competition Prizes module has added a number of new features and refinements to enhance the usability and display of prizes won by competitors. The following video gives an overview of the new competition closing procedure as well as a run through of the new allocation methods and how to apply them.

The use of prize templates is highly recommended to increase accuracy of allocations and efficiency of process at conclusion of competitions.

Clubs that are existing users of prizes/ledgers will require assistance from MiClub support staff to define new Prize Types, Ledgers and conversion of existing member balances.  The display of Prize Accounts and/or prize redemptions will be unavailable for 24 to 48 hours to ensure an accurate audit and check of converted member transactions and balances.

Prize Ledgers


The Prize Ledger can now display up to three separate ledgers with Vouchers and Golf Balls able to be converted into a monetary amount:

  • Dollars
  • Balls
  • Vouchers

Two additional ledgers are available for Other allocated prizes and Points for Micro Power clients for each member and visitor

All allocations and redemptions appear in a bank-like statement for both admin and members. The date of the competition has been added for each prize as well as the allocation date.  Golf Balls and Vouchers can now only be redeemed as whole amounts or transferred into Dollars


Typically a club may allocate Dollars to winners, Golf Balls to place getters and a club glass(Other) for Near Pins.

eg John Smith has won $30, $20, 2 balls, 1 ball, 1 ball and two near pins
His ledger balances are:
Dollars - $50
Balls - 4
and 2 x glasses for collection from the office listed in Other

John can redeem $50 from the Dollar ledger, collect 4 x Balls and 2 x Glasses.  He can also choose to convert the 4 x balls won into the Dollar ledger should the balls have a monetary value.

ie Convert the 4 balls valued at $4 each to the Dollars ledger.  John's ledger balances would now be:
Dollars - $66
Balls - 0
Other - 2 x Glasses

The Ball ledger will no longer have part of a ball remaining with only whole balls to be redeemed or transferred to Dollars.

Vouchers can now be defined to hold a monetary value and be redeemed or transferred to the Dollars ledger in a similar method to Golf Balls.  A club may allocate vouchers that have a monetary value of $4. A member with 12 vouchers would have an amount of $48 to transfer to Dollars and be able to redeem.

Other ledger is now an effective tool for a club to allocate and track uncollected non-monetary prizes eg Bottles of Wine, Glasses, donated trophies etc

New and Improved Features

Allocations and Exclusions

The new prizes module in Competitions clearly defines and explains all Allocations and Exclusions.  Most Prize Allocations contain Prize Exclusions on the prizes that can be won.

exclude2Example above exclude guests from winning prizes also a Position Winner cannot also win a Place Getter prize.

Prize Exclusions display clearly shows any prizes a competitor has not been awarded.

Combine all in-conjunction Prize Allocations

Prizes can now lessens the number of in-conjunction competitions required. Team and scratch prizes can now be allocated at the same time as the individual prizes.  Previously an in-conjunction 4BBB with a singles event would require two separate competitions or running in-conjunction scratch 4BBB and scratch singles also would require four competitions.  It is now able to define all within the one competition and prizes results

A Prize allocation can contain all the following elements within the one competition and prize results

  • Singles winners and placegetters
  • Scratch Winners
  • Best Ball winners
  • Scratch Best Ball winners

Overall Winner

An overall winner can now be awarded a prize and then be excluded from winning grade prizes


Example above Ron Mannell wins the overall nut is excluded from the B Grade prize.

Gender Specific Prizes

Mixed/Medley events that have Male and Female scores combined but allocate separate prize pools can be displayed on one prize report.

Example below 60 men in the competition 3 winners and 4 balls,40 ladies in the competition 2 winner and 3 balls.

Also an overall winner can be awarded to either a male or female score then the gender prizes can be allocated.


Grade Proportions for Place Getter Prizes

Place Getters(Down the Line) prizes can now be evenly proportioned between the grades to reflect the number of competitors in each grade


Example above a greater percentage of balls awarded to C & D grade than A & B grade depending on entrants per grade.

Breakdown of 12 balls - A - 2 balls (17.5%), B - 2 balls(17.5%), C - 5 balls(40%), D - 3 balls(25%)

Scaling or Decrementing Place Getter Prizes

For place getter prizes that are scaled down by a constant amount depending on scores


Example above awards 4 balls to all players on 44 points, 3 balls to 43 points until all balls are allocated


Award randomly selected competitors to win a sweepstakes prize


eg Three competitors have been randomnly selected to win a Golf Ball.  The ball will be automatically credited to the member prize account


All prize allocations can now be fully templated to save time when allocating prizes.  Create, Edit, Clone and Delete templates in the new Template Manager




First step is to enter the Prizes for the created competition.  Select Prizes button in competition listings view.  

Two different screens can appear:
