Enables golf association staff and club professionals to better manage a wide array of competitions – from USGA qualifiers and local championships at the association level to tournaments, leagues, and outings at the club level.
The USGA’s GHIN service has been an important technology tool for State and Regional Golf Associations (newly-recognized in 2018 as Allied Golf Associations), clubs, and golfers since its introduction in 1981. Historically, one of the core offerings of GHIN has been the Tournament Pairing Program (commonly called TPP®). In 2016, the USGA began to reimagine GHIN and explore opportunities to enhance its impact for the future. During this process, the USGA decided to collaborate with a software firm dedicated to the tournament management software market for the tournament management component. The USGA selected Golf Genius Software because of the proven quality of the product, its acceptance among numerous clubs, the scalability of the Golf Genius cloud solution, and the Golf Genius commitment to providing outstanding service to the USGA and its GHIN customers.
The result of the collaboration between the USGA and Golf Genius Software is USGA Tournament Management, now in use at thousands of golf clubs and virtually every State and Regional Golf Association in the United States.
USGA Tournament Management Club (TM Club), powered by Golf Genius Software, is a modern cloud-based software product that promises less work and superior results for golf professionals and tournament managers who organize and run golf tournaments. In addition to comprehensive tournament management functionality that saves the golf staff valuable time and eliminates complicated manual processes, TM Club also provides best-in-class fully customizable printed materials, unique features for organizing and managing golf leagues, and a comprehensive online knowledge base. Golf associations provide direct support to their member clubs, and have the option of escalating support cases as needed to the Golf Genius Support Team.

“As I've shared with Golf Professionals all over the region, USGA Tournament Management Premium has transformed the tournament experience for the members, guests, and staff of Audubon Country Club.
My staff and I are constantly searching for ways to make our event experience unique and memorable. The live scoring feature offered by TM Premium has added an irreplaceable element to our events that all participants rave about. We now have two large screens in our bar areas that scroll leaderboards during all major events.
TM Premium has made it possible to eliminate traditional scoreboards, saving countless hours during and after tournaments. It is without doubt is one of the best amenities we have provided our club in my 17 years as Head Golf Professional at Audubon Country Club.”
“USGA TM Club Premium enables the pro staff to easily print creative and attractive-looking printed materials such as scorecards and cart signs. We were able to raise our tournament administration fees for corporate events by $2 per player. That translates into real incremental revenue for our operation and a good return on our investment.”
“We run a multitude of events that involve many moving parts, from traditional member tournaments to a full calendar of outside events.
The ability to make each event unique in its own right - from the web portal to online registration to live scoring - has really added another level to the golf experience while streamlining the work on the back end for the golf staff.
We have been extremely impressed, and we could not be happier with the product.”
