GA tees off new Tournament Management System

Golf Australia today announced the launch of its new Tournament Management System. Golf Australia and several Member Associations have been working with Perth- based company MiClub in developing MiTournament an all encompassing tournament management system that provides on-line registrations, draw formulations, web-based and smart phone leader-boards. The development of the system is a major step forward for the industry, and is far more advanced than systems previously used by Golf Australia for its National Championships. Championships Manager, Therese Ritter said, The development of MiTournament will not only save time from an organiser s point of view, but most importantly, it is a significant step forward in providing improved services to our players and supporters . The system will allow players to easily register on-line, can advise players of their tee times via SMS or e-mail, and will soon provide a much improved live scoring service. MiClub Director Peter Maddison said We saw this as an excellent opportunity to use our experience to develop a smart solution for tournament management. We look forward to evolving MiTournament with expanded services for associations, clubs and participants. Many of Golf Australia s Member Associations and Golf clubs will also take up use of the system over the coming months.
