Dynamic vs Static QR Codes for Golf

Static QR code

A  Static QR code is useful in situations where the QR code doesn’t need to be updated such as one time only marketing campaigns or the destination will not be changed.

They also have a wide range of applications which are not available in dynamic QR Codes. This is because they cannot be changed or tracked.

Mainly used for these type of applications. Most are just links to other services. Link, Text, E-mail, Location, Phone, SMS, WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom, WI-FI, V-card , Event, PayPal, BitCoin

Dynamic QR code

Have you ever seen QR Codes on Food Packaging? Imagine how expensive it would be for food manufacturers if they had to print new packaging every time their QR code needed an update. Dynamic QR codes are editable and offer more features than Static QR Codes.

Dynamic QR codes have a short URL embedded in the code, which can redirect the user to the destination website URL. The destination URL can be changed after the QR code has been generated, while the short URL embedded in the code remains the same.

Dynamic QR codes are easier to scan than Static QR Codes because the QR code image is less dense. Unlike Static QR Codes, you can protect a Dynamic QR code with a password, find out how many people scanned your code, or track what type of devices scanned it.


In this article we have looked mainly at golf courses etc however there are many new golfing activities springing up around the country.

Golf is traditionally played on grass, but there are other versions played on different surfaces. In Winter there may not be grass available, but that shouldn’t stop you from playing golf.

You can play Snow Golf, just like regular golf, however the golf course is covered with snow and ice. The summer variation of this is Beach Golf, a simplified version of golf played on sand with a polyurethane foam ball.

Indoor golf is also becoming popular.
