NCGA Tournament Management

Powered by BlueGolf

ncga bluegolf

After the USGA announced their decision to not renew their contract with Golf Genius effective 12/31/2021, the NCGA explored many options for our own tournament management program and what we could offer to our clubs. We knew that many of our clubs have been asking for a system that is easy to use, so this was also an important objective in finding the best partner for all of us. We found an excellent partner in BlueGolf whose very user friendly system will allow all of us to run many types of tournaments and events. Importantly, NCGA will be providing this complimentary to our clubs - free of charge. 

And, we are making a long-term investment which will allow us to include several exciting premium features such as online tournament registration (subject to credit card transaction fees), and real-time online scoring in 2022. Other tournament management programs charge up to $3,000 per club for these premium features. The NCGA believes there is no need for a club to pay for their tournament management software.

We feel this program is more intuitive than the current platform, and anticipate that the training will be minimal. However,  BlueGolf and the NCGA customer service teams will be providing all of the support necessary for our club officers/leaders to transition to this new system. We firmly believe that this change will lead to increased member satisfaction.

Since this will be the only tournament management solution that the NCGA will be supporting for 2022 and beyond, we encourage clubs to transition along with us. For those clubs not currently using a tournament management solution, we encourage checking out this easy-to-use solution. All that said, it is the choice of the club to determine the best solution for their needs.
