March Golf Club Google Calendar
A Guide to Installing the March Golf Club “Live” Calendar
Traditionally, March Golf Club has issued an annual diary listing club events (matches and annual social activities). However, as the golfing year progresses, the printed diary does not reflect potential changes to any match/competition dates and times nor additional use of the clubhouse for such things as wakes and private functions. Of course, changes to matches and competitions is always made as a last resort, but it is inevitable that amendments will happen from time to time. The Club’s web site diary always displays a “live” diary but this involves logging onto the web. Therefore, we are offering Members an alternative way of always having a copy of an-up-to-date diary, available on a mobile phone, tablet or desktop.
What is this new diary?:
The alternative diary uses the free Google Calendar, displayed within the free Google app available for Android phones, iPhones, iPads and Android pads. The diary can also be added to your existing device calendar so that all your events are visible in one place (the normal way of differentiation is by using alternative colours for each diary).
How do I obtain a copy of the new diary?:
The process of obtaining the new diary is simple and involves no expenditure and you really don’t need to be “techie” to install it.
1. Use/Obtain a Gmail account:
Many Members already have Gmail accounts, which give immediate access to a Google Calendar and, if you don’t have one, it’s a simple matter of obtaining one by clicking on the link below and filling in the form:
