Frequently Asked Questions

Using Tournament Manager

 Is it complicated to use?
No. Computer novice is assumed - you'll be up and running in 20 minutes.

 How do my golfers access their information?
1. Your group is given a website address. Golfers can go to this website any time to see tournament information. Tournament Manager's mass email feature enables you to automatically send each golfer his/her sign in information.
2. If your group already has a website, a sign in link can be placed on your own site.

 We have the legacy version of Tournament Manager. Can our information be transferred?
Yes, your golfers can be transferred. We will do this for you.

 Can I send group emails to tournament participants and membership lists?

 Is there a tutorial available to learn the system?
Yes. Includes a "Quick Tutorial", full online help, sample data to "play" with, and phone and email help.


 How many players can I have in my roster(s)?
You can have an unlimited number of players.

 Do we have to pay for inactive golfers?

Data Input

 Do I have to manually input all my players?
No. You can import any "standard" data file. CSV, tab-delimited, Excel, etc. Most programs can export their data into a "standard" format.

 Is there a course database?
Yes, there is a database of most courses from around the world. If a course you play on is not found, it can be added at any time to the course database.

 Do I have to input hole-by-hole scores?
Yes and no. Hole-by-hole posting is necessary only if you wish to show tournament leaderboard, skins, best ball, points, etc. However, you (tournament director/committee) don't have to enter any scores, if you don't want to. You can have the golfers enter scores as they play using their phones. When you let golfers post scores, your results are available immediately during and after play.


 Do you have customers outside the United States?
Yes! We have customers from most countries around the world.

 Do you sell or use my list of golfers for advertising purposes?
No. Never.
