Tournamatic   Tournament Software as a Service

Are you about to host a golf tournament and in need of software to help make your life easier? Well Tournamatic is here to do just that.

As a former golf professional I know that organizing a golf tournament requires a lot of time. Many hours are required to take care of all the details. From setting up entry forms, getting sponsors to doing all the scoring and handing out prizes. I played a lot of amateur golf events this year and thanked each and every tournament organizer for all their hard work. In one of the events I knew the organizer. He had been running the the tournament for five years. This past summer was his final year. When talking to him he said he was burnt out and tired of donating so much of his time.

As technology advances, so do the software pieces that can help with organizing golf tournaments. But none of them can compete with Tournamatic. I’m going to list the two best features.

#1 – Web Based, No Downloads

All other golf tournament hosting software are just that, downloadable software. This means you have the use the same computer to organize your tournament. What if you only have a desktop computer and need to do scoring? Are you going to haul your desktop down to the course to enter scores? That doesn’t sound like fun!

Tournamatic is a web based application. What does that mean? It means you can access your tournament page from any computer as long as you can connect to the internet. Here’s how that works. So you create a tournament on Tournamatic’s website. You are giving a webpage http://yourtournament.tournamatic.com. That webpage is where you do all the work. People sign up there, you post tee times and scoring results. It acts as a hub and community for your tournament. How awesome is that?!

#2 – Collect Payments Easier

Do you hate having to run to the bank? Of course you do. That’s why online banking and interac transfers are so popular. Well, running to the bank to cash cheques for golfers registering for your tournament is a pain too. You won’t have to do that anymore and Tournamatic has payment processing through Stripe to make things easier.

Stripe works like Paypal. People can pay if they have a credit card and no account. So when they sign up they pay Stripe with their credit card. Stripe takes that payment and enters the money into your account. You then connect your tournament bank account to your Stripe account and transfer funds when you need to. No more trips to the bank to cash all those cheques. If you have over 100 golfers in your tournament, that can add up to five or six trips to the bank.

Plus, you want to make sure people pay when they sign up so you have money in your tournament bank account to purchase prizes and food.

I’m going to talk about more features about the golf tournament software Tournamatic in the future. So stay tuned for those!
