USGA Tournament Management

Top Logo


The USGA’s GHIN service has been an important technology tool for the MGA, clubs, and golfers since it was developed in 1981. One of the core products included with GHIN is 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, which is a USGA-branded version of the established and successful Golf Genius tournament management system that replaces TPP® and provides many additional benefits.


We have had a very successful season with TM users and clubs have adapted to the program with ease. We encourage you to take the time to look at all the benefits of this exciting new program and begin planning for the 2022 season. Find out how TM can boost participation and revenue with less work!


*As a reminder TM will be replacing the GHIN Tournament Pairing Program, which will be shut down at the end of 2017 season. 


What is it?

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. As they do today with TPP®, golf associations will provide direct support to their member clubs, and will have the option of escalating support cases as needed to the Golf Genius Support Team.
