Wayne, PA — Golf Genius Software (GGS), the leading worldwide provider of tournament management solutions, and England Golf, the governing body for amateur golf in England, have announced a multi-year licensing agreement appointing GGS as England Golf’s official tournament management software supplier. England Golf will now utilize Golf Genius TM Association to manage its entire calendar of championship events.
This decision by England Golf follows their approval of GGS as a software supplier licensed by them to support England Golf’s forthcoming implementation of the World Handicap System (WHS). Golf Genius Software has deep experience with the new WHS system, having worked closely with the USGA in their implementation of WHS which was launched in January.
Following a successful trial at the Men’s and Women’s English Amateur Championships in July, England Golf decided to adopt Golf Genius TM Association for all of its events, including the Brabazon Trophy and English Women’s Stroke Play. England Golf plans to leverage the software’s comprehensive range of innovative tournament management features, including the unique live digital scoring platform, to deliver enhanced event experiences for leading amateur golfers.
James Crampton, England Golf’s Championship Director, commented: “We’re delighted to have Golf Genius as our approved software supplier for championships. With the help and expert knowledge of Golf Genius, we aim to bring our championships to life for the golfing public through the flow of information and live scoring from events.” Crampton continued: “The ability to move to a paperless and digital system for competitors is also a forward-thinking move in keeping with England Golf’s ambitions to deliver first-class championships for our community of golfers.”
Craig Higgs, Managing Director of Golf Genius International, said: “We are genuinely excited for the opportunity to serve the needs of England Golf, and look forward to adding significant value to the tournament operations of their many historic and prestigious amateur events.”
Mike Zisman, Co-CEO of Golf Genius Software added: “This agreement with England Golf to support their prestigious amateur tournaments is a testament to our UK team’s relentless dedication to customer success at the highest level. We are honored to have been chosen as the official tournament software supplier by England’s governing body and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
