Powerful and straightforward to use.
As well as handling the standard formats such as medals and stablefords, intelligentgolf also provides full support for a wide range of other competition types as well, with all of the great online features available for your members to enjoy, and the same ease of administration for the club officials.
All competitions are capable of using our powerful and flexible signup process, both in the clubhouse and from anywhere via the internet, with most of the formats available for full player score input via the touchscreen.
A closely contested golf match is a joy to watch, but often a lot more engaging to play. Members who participate in club competitions foster a better club atmosphere, are more likely to be retained as members and also can bring the club revenue by their participation. With increasingly busy lifestyles, the days when clubs could almost go out of their way to make competition signup a lottery for their members are now over.
The intelligentgolf system allows clubs to put the choice back, while allowing a fair system of signup. No one should be disadvanged or excluded if they don't use the internet, but equally those with busy working lives cannot always make the time to get to the club just to enter a competition. Members can enter in the clubhouse via the touchscreen, or an administrator in the pro shop or secretary's office can enter them by phone.
Administrators have complete control over the signup options, with features such as:
Extending the signup features above to open competitions allows your visitors to the golf club to enter and access information with ease. Full payment integration with PayPal or SagePay handles the money, and competition entry filters on handicap and age, with full CDH validation ensure that only those who qualify can enter.
For those clubs running larger competitions, including R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking events, intelligentgolf allows you to run very professional events, with automatic submission of scores to Central Databases of Handicaps & the R&A.
Live scoring options display open competition results directly on your website, allowing viewers all over the world to keep up with the action, with no additional effort for the club.
Team open competitions are also easy to setup and enter, encouraging entry and maximising exposure and revenue for your club during an Open Week, or just your Seniors Open. Once a competition has been completed, it is also easy then to contact the competitors to invite them to sign up for next year's event, and to publicise the results.
Making intelligentgolf accessible to all
A key goal of intelligent golf is to be inclusive, and this extends to allowing those without internet access to still be able to use the key functions of the system. With a beautifully designed, but easy to use interface, members can access their data using the touchscreen, logging in using their existing membership card or their PIN number. The following features are then available to them.
The touchscreen requires internet access, but is optimised to work over even dial up connections using the latest AJAX technology. The screen is also customised with the look & feel of the club, and is there to complement the surroundings. A club can choose to use their existing touchscreen and swipe cards if they have them, or intelligentgolf can provide them for you.
Any intelligentgolf competition can be displayed on our live leaderboards, running on as many screens as you would like. With flexibility to display startsheets, sponsor information and of course hole by hole results, you can generate a great atmosphere in the clubhouse as the results are coming in.
An internet connection and a display device is all that is required to get this up and running, and the system is flexible with output devices, from a projector and screen, to full HD LCD TVs. The ability to have the leaderboard shown on multiple screens also gives more options when running multiple competitions simultaneously as well.
While most competition results are entered on completion of the scorecard by the player, and the entry via the touchscreen, intelligentgolf also offers for those special events a compelling, hole by hole option.
On our specially designed mobile interface, scores can be recorded by players as they are actually on the course. Used to great effect by England Golf, the Golfing Union or Ireland, County Unions and many prestigious clubs at their flagship events (The Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters,, volunteers positioned around the course record player standings, and this information is instantly updated on the internet and at the big screen leaderboards in the clubhouse.
This offers a fantastic facility for members and visitors alike, and brings a touch of The Open to your club's event.
