What Administrators Need to Know
Previewing the following information and videos come highly recommended for all new, tournament administrators.
The purpose of this page is to familiarize you with tournament setup and system functionality. Setup initially starts with a golf club search to verify club and course information previewed by your potential players on the Events page.
After your initial club search, you'll perform tournament setups, including:
- Completing general tournament data (# of days, start date, image upload, fee calculator, player entry fee, course handicap calculator, and more)
- Setting up the Gross and/or Net skins games for multiple flights and unlimited players (includes paid-in-advance and daily entry fee calculations, multi-day pool % settings, and more)
- Selecting the club(s), as well as one or more course(s) at the club
- Selecting tee names or creating custom tee names, tee colors, locations, ratings, and slopes
- Entering hole handicaps, par values, and distances.
- Player divisions and Gross/Net flight setups, if required.
Scorecard values are easily entered, using our built-in internet scorecard links. Or you can do it by finding the scorecards during your club search, if available. For any scorecard we don't have in our database, we have step-by-step instructions on where and how to find clubs and scorecards on the internet.
This is great news for you. We give you discounts for finding and acquiring new course scorecards. We'll pay you to enter the scorecard data that we don't have and you enter into our database.
Also included is a link to the USGA Course Rating and Slope database, so you can easily find and enter tee ratings and slopes during the Club/Course setup.
Rest assured! The feature-rich, setup instructions and tutorial videos are quick and easy to preview, anytime, 24/7. They'll quickly get you started. Setup shouldn't take you more than an hour. After that, you're ready for player signups.
We even provide a secure gateway where your players can use PayPal or Stripe to pay their entry fee. This service can be added for a small service fee.
