This little area is designated for frequently asked questions. We may not know it all but we at least act like we do. If you still have questions after reading through this section of the site, try asking a lawyer, doctor, plastic surgeon, or executive of any kind. Chances are they golf more than we do.
If you still have questions after this section and you have asked the mentioned professionals, you can send us any outstanding questions you may have. Please honor the fact that we are not very good at physics, astrophysics, atomic physics, biology, demonology, scientology, or anything else ending with the -ology.
How much does the site cost?
Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Nada. The site is FREE for all to use. That is how we roll around these parts.
Why do I need to create an account?
You don't have to create an account. The site will be be a little more fun if you do though. Members can enter scores, comments, track courses they have played, track scores they have shot, compete with others members. Members can also utilize the mobile application which is tied to their Extreme Caddy account.
How do I view tournament results?
You are going to need an account. It's free and only takes a couple minutes, so no worries. Once you get logged in, from the my account page, you will see a link on the left hand side for tournaments. Once on the tournaments page, find the course and tournament you are looking for.
Why do I need an account to view tournaments?
Simple, we want users. If you create an account to view tournament results, why wouldn't you come back to enter scores in? Besides, Extreme Caddy is a free service with no catch or anything else you should be worried about. I speak the truth.

If you are a golf course and you want to put tournament results online, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to assist you. We will set you up with instructions and information that will make tournament management easier than ever.
What is Extreme Rating?
Extreme Rating is how you stack up to the rest of the users on Extreme Caddy. Although some users opt not to use the score tracking functionality, Extreme Rating stacks your numbers up to others that have entered scores. So Extreme Caddy members that have never entered a score are not part of the rating.
How do I use the mobile applications?
Extreme Caddy is accessible via mobile devices. Best utilized for phones such as iPhone, Pre, Droid and any other mobile browser that is webkit enabled. Extreme Caddy features it's very own scorecard. Track your score from the course during your round. Once the round is complete submit the score to twitter or your extreme caddy account, right then and there.
Why don't you have an iPhone App?
It is a personal preference really. We could have created an iPhone App, with all the bells and whistles, but then most of our audience wouldn't be able use the functionality. We opted to go with a web app instead. Since we aren't charging anyone to use the app, why not make it available to other devices as well. iPhone and iPod Touch still work great and look like native apps but now Droid and Pre users have the same functionality. Web apps are the way of the future. Mark our words.
What do you do with my personal information?
We put it away and forget about it. We use your email address to send account specific emails only. Which means no spamming. We use your name to welcome you to the site by name. I would like to think we are on a first name basis.
Why can't I view a certain course?
Extreme Caddy is starting out with regional courses. Since Extreme Caddy was born as a school project, resources are limited. If you would like us to add a specific course please let us know the name and location and we'll get started. Inability to view certain courses does not restrict any other portion of the sitez functionality which means you can still track scores, courses, and compete freely.
Will Extreme Caddy improve my golf game?
This is a good question and like any other site, I am going to have to say 'of course we will help.' There are two things that are keys for success in any sport, practice and preparation. Extreme Caddy will help you prepare for courses that you have never played or don't play regularly.
With the course and score tracking we are also promoting regular play or practice. The more golf you play the more fun the site will be. Practice and preparation, two P's in a pod.
