GHP Online Golfer Label Printing Setup (Optional)
Due to limitations with web browsers, JavaScript and what they are allowed to interact with on
the computer, label printing cannot be automated. We will have to follow the following steps to
set the printer up to print handicap labels. This setup will only need to be done once.
