Build Teams

The heart of Tournament Manager is its ability to build teams...manually or automatically...with any number of golfers per team - 2-somes, 3-somes, 4-somes, 5-somes, 6-somes, 7-somes, and 8-somes.

  • Many pairing options! Tournament Manager can consider one, many, or all of the following parameters when building x-somes: Handicaps, Flights, Groups, Gender, Cart/Walk, and/or Preferred tee time. Select the appropriate pairing options and watch Tournament Manager go. For example, you could make Tournament Manager build simple foursomes requiring an A,B,C,D golfer in each a complex 2 men, 2 women in each foursome, each from a different club (group), respecting walk/ride, considering each golfer's preferred tee time, trying to balance each foursome A,B,C,D - while trying to maintain equal team handicaps. It would take days to do manually. Tournament Manager does it in a matter of seconds. It even has an option to automatically avoid pairing husbands and wives together.
  • Up to 9 grouping fields available. Use the group field to make Tournament Manager handle complex pairings. Example: Assume you're running a tournament with 100 golfers. 25 are professionals and the other 75 amateurs. You want to calculate 25 equal foursomes with one professional per foursome and the remaining three amateurs. Place all professionals in group 1, and all amateurs in group 2. Then mark "Balance Groups" and calculate pairings. This golf tournament software will assure that one professional appears in each foursome....while maintaining any other options you set.
  • Many calculation modes:

    Equal x-somes: Calculates x-somes with total group handicaps as close as possible for each x-some.

    Balanced x-somes: Calculates x-somes with a balanced number of flights in each x-some. For example, a balanced foursome would produce an A,B,C,D in each foursome, while trying to maintain equal team handicaps.

    Flighted x-somes: Calculates x-somes with the same flight in each x-some. For example, a flighted foursome would try to produce an A,A,A,A in each foursome while trying to maintain equal teams. The next set of foursomes would be B,B,B,B, etc.

    Mixed Flighted x-somes: Calculates x-somes with the mixed flights in each x-some. For example, a mixed foursome would try to produce an A,A,C,C in each foursome and B,B,D,D in each foursome. Or A,A,B,B and C,C,D,D, etc...

    Random Pairings: Calculates completely random x-somes, without regard for any criteria (handicaps, flights, gender, carts, etc.) See our free golf pairings generator.

  • Powerful manual pairing options. Allows you to lock any number of golfers on the same team. You can manually build some teams (or parts of teams) and let Tournament Manager automatically pair the rest.
