How To Add The Club Diary To Your Mobile Device

This guide will take you through the process for adding the latest club diary to your phone or tablet (a PDF version is also available).  It uses the calendar link from the Club's Intelligent Golf website and is a single calendar containing the events for all sections.  Calendars for individual sections are not available.  Please use the method that is most suitable for you. 

  • Method 1: Subscribe to the calendar using your Google account.  Works for all devices.
  • Method 2: Subscribe to the calendar without using a Google account.  Works for iPhones/iPads only.
  • Method 3: Save events to your local calendar app.  Works for iPhones/iPads but should only be used if you can't successfully subscribe to the calendar.

Method 1: Subscribe to the Calendar Using Your Google Account

First, you'll add the Chesfield Downs calendar to your Google account.

  1. Click here to go to the Google calendars page (sign in to Google if prompted).
  2. Down the left-hand side click the plus sign next to Other Calendars.
  3. Click From URL and type in http://bit.ly/chesfield (all lowercase and don't miss the dot).
  4. Click Add calendar (leave the checkbox above this empty).

Next, you'll sync your account with your calendar app using the steps below for your specific device.

Sync for Android

In some cases you won't need to do anything except wait for your device to auto-sync (normally within 15 minutes) after which time you should see the Chesfield Downs calendar in your calendar app. 

Optionally, you can initiate a manual sync from your device via: Settings > Accounts > Google > Your email > Sync Calendar 

If you still can't see the calendar you may need to enable it within your calendar app settings.  This differs depending on the app you use but for Google Calendar follow these steps:

  1. Open the Calendar app and click the menu icon in the top left corner.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and click Settings
  3. Click on the Chesfield Downs calendar (you may need to click Show More first)
  4. Toggle the Sync option to On then go back to the menu. 
  5. Scroll down until you see the Chesfield Downs calendar and click the check box to enable it.

Sync for iPhones/iPads

  1. If your iPhone/iPad is already configured to sync with your Google account go to step 2.  Otherwise click here first and carry out the steps in the section titled "Sync your account with Apple apps" then continue to step 2.
  2. From your device, click here to select the calendar to sync.
  3. Ensure the Chesfield Downs Golf Club Diary is enabled and click Save

Method 2: Subscribe to the Calendar without a Google Account

For iPhones/iPads Only 

  1. From your device, go to Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Add Account > Other
  2. Click on Add Subscribed Calendar
  3. In the Server section type http://bit.ly/chesfield (all lowercase and don't miss the dot), then click Next
  4. Change the Description field if you want to and leave everything else.
  5. Click Next then Save.
If you're unable to add the calendar this way then go to Method 3.


Method 3: Save Events To A Local Calendar App

This method is not recommended as it will store a static copy of each event to your calendar app.  There are over 600 events so please try subscribing to the calendar instead if you haven't already.  By subscribing you will also have the benefit of seeing calendar changes automatically.

  1. From your iPhone/iPad click here to import the Chesfield Downs ics calendar file.  This is the same file available on Intelligent Golf.
  2. A popup window will appear showing the events and number of events available. Click Add all then Done
