GolfBets Updates

Current customers can obtain the latest release for a small update charge from the GolfBets order page.

GolfBets tie handling was significantly changed in early 2002. Earlier versions allowed up to 10 ties each for win, place, and show. The new version limits payoffs up to 3 player/teams with up to 10 total player/teams once the winner entry for a given level is started. Version 6.01 released in January, 2006 includes more extensive data entry editing and file error checking and fixes the "corrupt file error message problem".

You may need to obtain an update if you are experiencing problems although you may want contact us first by email at
