The MGA is pleased to announce the launch of the USGA Tournament Management (TM) Program in time for the 2017 season!
Here is what you need to know:
TM is the result of a collaboration between the USGA and Golf Genius Software. Golf Genius is recognized as the industry leader in software solutions for tournament management. Golf Genius was selected by the USGA due to the proven quality and versatility of its product, the scalability of the Golf Genius cloud solution, and the Golf Genius commitment to providing outstanding support.
Two versions - USGA TM Club and USGA TM Club Premium - will be offered to our Member Clubs. Complete details about both versions as well as an overview of support that will be made available are included below.

USGA TM Club provides all the tools needed for the golf shop to set up and run member events, leagues and outings. It substantially reduces the workload in the golf shop and provides best-in-class and fully customizable printed materials. USGA TM Club will be offered to MGA clubs at no charge and as part of the suite of MGA Member Club services.

USGA TM Club will be functionally equivalent to TPP and will be included as part of the MGA Member Services program. There is no additional cost for this service.
USGA TM Club Premium will be functionally equivalent to the current Golf Genius product and available as an upgrade for a set annual fee. The USGA TM Club Premium product includes additional capabilities to improve the golfer experience via the GGS mobile app, live scoring, online registration and payments, and a customizable website for each event, league or outing.
USGA TM Club Premium is functionally equivalent to the existing Golf Genius product and will deliver all the benefits of USGA TM Club, plus capabilities to improve the golfer experience, enhance tournament operations and create new revenue opportunities for your facility: A mobile App for live scoring, live leaderboards and sponsor content.

The investment in USGA TM Club Premium includes a $300 one-time setup fee (not applicable to clubs that are current subscribers of Golf Genius) and an annual subscription fee of $2,500 for facilities with not more than 36 holes.
Here is additional information about the support that will be provided to all clubs as well as instructions on the next steps for your club.
SUPPORT: The MGA will be the first point of contact for support for all USGA TM Club and USGA TM Club Premium users. A second level of support will be provided by Golf Genius. Support will be provided by phone, email and help chat on the TM web site.
TPP TRANSITION: The MGA will continue to support users of TPP Client and TPP Online through the 2017 season. Please keep in mind that TPP Client is not compatible with Windows 10 and or a machine that uses Outlook 2012. While TPP Online is compatible in most operating environments, we strongly encourage users to convert to either USGA TM Club or USGA TM Club Premium in time for the 2017 season. The ease of use, features and speed at which USGA TM Club or USGA TM Club Premium operates offers significant improvements over TPP. The USGA has also recommended that any TPP users who want to archive any information do so by exporting documents before the end of 2017.
CURRENT GOLF GENIUS CUSTOMERS: Existing Golf Genius customers will be able to continue using the product without disruption and will benefit from the MGA's pricing structure.
TRAINING SESSIONS: Clubs that are interested in learning more about or would like to begin using USGA TM Club or USGA TM Club Premium will be requested to attend an informational/training session conducted by MGA staff over the next few months. These sessions will be conducted on a regional basis for your convenience and are not required for existing Golf Genius customers.
NEXT STEPS: If you are interested in learning more or to begin using USGA TM Club or USGA TM Club Premium, please complete a brief five-question survey. The survey is designed to assess your needs and to customize the regional educational/training sessions that will be offered.
