Lawrence Moses is a PGA Apprentice at Clifton Park Golf Course and manages multiple leagues within the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation. Prior to using GolfLeagueGenius, he was unable to provide golfers with the ideal league experience he strived for. Here is his story.
Before GolfLeagueGenius, I spent hours of my time invested in managing leagues. Not only was it time consuming, but I didn’t have the confidence to attempt different formats and try new things. Organizing weekly rosters, events and scores over multiple leagues was extremely difficult and there was a large margin for error.
What tournament formats do your leagues play?
I have recently added a new league that uses USGA handicaps, plays four different courses from four different tees, runs three different weekly games, and tracks ringers for each course played. In addition, I am adding a Ryder Cup format during October for the top 24 players.
How has GolfLeagueGenius.com made your life easier?
The amount of time I spent on these leagues has been cut in half. I now have the confidence to try new formats and attempt to add even more leagues to our facility.
What is your favorite feature?
The ability to create a professional-looking website filled with options such as photo galleries, message boards, player profiles, player statistics, and event results will give PGA professionals a much needed tool when soliciting new leagues to their golf course. In one season, I have seen a revitalization of league play at Clifton Park. All it takes is a few moments to show league managers what is available and how it fits their needs.
What has the reaction been from the other golfers?
Our members really enjoy the software. They love the live scoring and member portal. The league talk function has been a lot of fun for the golfers and brought a new sense of competition on the course. They are constantly looking at photos, results and their own statistics. For these old timers it is their version of Facebook.
