The Confederation of Professional Golf [CPG] has today announced a three-year partnership with Golf Genius to provide its market-leading tournament management software (TMS) and activate new, shorter formats of golf.
As Official Tournament Software partner, Golf Genius will help the CPG elevate its schedule of events and communicate directly with its Member Country PGAs and their individual Members for tournament management support.
Craig Higgs, Managing Director of Golf Genius International, commented: “We look forward to establishing a strong relationship with the Confederation of Professional Golf in what represents a very exciting partnership for Golf Genius.
“We’ll be looking to take their events to the next level and demonstrate to each and every CPG Member Country how they can improve their tournaments with our event management solution, which is trusted by organisations such as the PGA of America, England Golf and the USGA.”
In response to the global coronavirus pandemic, Golf Genius has further developed its digital solutions, providing tournament organisers with more options to run safe, contactless events, as used by the European Tour from the restart of the 2020 season.
The Golf Genius digital scorecard, advanced leaderboard presentation, prize fund management, and complete set of registration and communication tools facilitate professional, efficient events with easy set-up and admin.
Golf Genius’ flexible scoring solution will enable the CPG to activate leagues across a collection of competitive, shortened and more inclusive formats of golf.
Commenting on the new partnership, Ian Randell, Chief Executive of the CPG, said: “Golf Genius have really established themselves as leaders in the area of tournament management software over the last few years and in partnering with them, we look forward to continuing to build our own tournament offering and facilitate a shared calendar of tournaments and education activity, made up of our activities and those of our Member Countries.
“We will also work with them to develop software solutions for game development, both on and off course, and as such this relationship will also help further our commitment to develop the game more broadly, enabling its benefit to be wider-felt by golfers across all nationalities, levels and abilities.”
Among those who have already become customers of Golf Genius are the PGAs of Belgium, Holland and Portugal, who have been using the renowned tournament scoring solution to run enhanced events.
Frank Kirsten, CPG Chairman and Director of the PGA of Holland, added: “By embarking on our own relationship with Golf Genius, we will be able to provide a significantly enhanced tournament service to our PGA of Holland Members in 2021.
“This newly-announced partnership between the CPG and Golf Genius is fantastic news for other CPG Member Countries and their members as well, and will enable them the opportunity to further their own tournament golf offerings in their respective countries.”
To mark the start of the partnership, Golf Genius is extending a free demo offer to all CPG Member Countries to experience the cloud-based, live scoring software first-hand. For more details, contact CPG Communications & Event Manager, Tom Bentley [email@example.com].
