At this time you can use social sign in (like Facebook, Google or Apple) to create and log in to your Golf Pad account. This option will be removed soon due to technical reasons and to streamline account management.
Because of that we do not recommend using social sign in to create new accounts. If you already use social sign in for your Golf Pad account, you can still log in this way, but we strongly encourage you to change to email-based login at your earliest convenience. Please see this article to learn how to change your account. All your data including playing history, statistics and upgrade status will stay safe.
Not sure what type of sign in you use? You check under Golf Pad preferences / User profile.
