When planning for your next golf event, club competition or Pro-am tournament, event set-up can be a difficult process if you don’t know where to start.

  • How do I create an event?
  • What if I want to set up a league/roll-up/community?
  • Is there a simple way I can communicate with the players?

The answers to these questions can be found with Golf Genius. Through their industry-leading tournament management system that is fit to all formats and event types, you can take your customer experience to the next level and deliver a fantastic golf event.

What is a tournament management system?

Tournament management systems (TMS) provide options for you to plan and set-up a golf tournament. Quite simply, these systems are where a PGA Professional or tournament director spends all their time behind the scenes getting everything ready to run a smooth and successful golf event.

Golf Genius’ tournament management system provides PGA Professionals with a complete set of tools to manage a wide variety of golf events across your busy events calendar. It saves you time, allows you to deliver a great experience and can help generate additional revenue.

What does the Golf Genius tournament management system involve?

Player Portals
For each event or league/society/roll-up, PGA Professionals can easily create a bespoke tournament portal to communicate information directly to players, including tee times, pairings, daily results and live leaderboards.

Online Registration
The Golf Genius Club Premium has one of the very few registration systems in the industry built exclusively for golf. This allows players and teams to register for an event online or on their mobile devices, in a matter of minutes.

Email and Text Messaging
When using Golf Genius’ tournament management systems, PGA Professionals can send customised email and text messages with information specific to each pairing and player.

Managing an Event
Golf Genius provides a streamlined process to handle single round events on a single course – with the quick event setup feature. It also allows each event to have any number of tournaments, multiple tournaments in a round or tournaments over multiple rounds.

Player Rosters
The Golf Genius TMS provides a Master Roster (containing all players at a particular club or facility), an Event Roster (the set of players participating in each event), and a Round Roster (the set of players participating in a particular round of a multi-round event or league).

Golf Courses
Golf Genius includes the ability to search the USGA Course Rating Directory and download courses with basic course information along with the ability to fully manage all course and tee details.
