Introducing: USGA Tournament Management for RDGA Member Clubs

Click on the above image for a short introductory video about the new USGA Tournament Management-Club software.
Beginning on January 1, 2018, the USGA will begin offering its new USGA Tournament Management software as a program available to all member clubs of an officially-recognized Allied Golf Association - including all Member Clubs the Rochester District Golf Association.
This new tournament management product will replace all current versions of the USGA's Tournament Pairing Program, or TPP - INCLUDING TPP-Client and TPP Online Club. The USGA will be retiring their TPP programs at the end of 2017. After December 31, 2017, TPP will no longer operate or connect to any USGA handicap or course ratings systems.

Beginning November 1, all RDGA Member Clubs will have the opportunity to convert to the new USGA Tournament Management Club program (TM-Club for short). To learn more about this transition please read the TM-Club Announcement and the TM-Club Information Fact Sheet at the links listed below.

Clubs desiring to use the new program are invited to attend a TM Training Seminar prior to using the software.
