Here are steps to create an account. (For password help, see the bottom of this article.) 



First, open the app from your phone. 



If you're using the app for the first time, you'll see a screen like this:


Click "Create Account"




If you've used the app before, you may see this start screen instead:



Click the settings icon in the upper right corner





Next, you'll see a list of choices for various settings. 


To create your Golf Pad account, click "User Profile"





Next, choose, "Create New Account"





Complete the fields shown, then click "Create Account". Save your password in a safe place. 





If you prefer, select either "Sign up with Facebook" or "Sign up with Google+". Log in using your account credentials. 





Now you're all set. Go play some golf! 


Important Note About Data


If another player signs in to their Golf Pad account on your mobile device, your data will be replaced by theirs. 


If your friend is a pro, this might be nice, but most golfers don't want this to happen. To avoid this, remember to only log in to your account on your device. 


If you forget and need help resolving the issue, email support@golfpadgps.com


Change Log In Credentials


If you ever want to change your account credentials, go to Settings > Profile. 


Reset Your Password


If you registered with email (not social media) and forget your Golf Pad password, go to the Player Dashboard. Click "forgot password". Enter the email address used to create the account. This will send a password reset message to that email address. If you forget the email address associated with your account, please contact support@golfpadgps.com.
