GOLF CANADA ANNOUNCES PROMOTIONAL PARTNERSHIP WITH TOURNAMENTCADDIE
Web-based platform designed to automate and simplify the golf event management process
(Oakville, ON) – Golf Canada is pleased to announce a promotional partnership with Tournament Caddie, a Canadian technology platform designed as an easy to use, one-stop solution for recreational or charity golf event organizers.
Launched in late 2017, TournamentCaddie is a web-based software tool designed to automate traditional time - or labour-intensive activities associated with organizing a golf event. The product aims to makes the tournament organizing process more efficient and effective for organizers.
Participation in recreational, corporate and charity golf outings is one of golf's largest participation segments and each year in Canada, more than 37,000 charity events at Canadian golf courses help to raise more than $533 million for worthwhile causes. Golf Canada’s promotional partnership with TournamentCaddie is an endorsement of a platform that makes it easier for event organizers to maximize their event’s potential.
“The recreational and charity golf sector represents a huge component of golf participation in Canada,” said Golf Canada CEO Laurence Applebaum. “TournamentCaddie offers user-friendly platform with relevant features that we believe offers strong value to the committed golf event organizers who are driving charitable benefit through golf to communities across Canada.”
The platform empowers event organizers to create a mobile-friendly website that allows for easy collection of registration payments; management of golf pairings and foursomes; printing personalized event scorecards; coordinating prize table donations; and much more. TournamentCaddie also offers a turnkey hole-in-one insurance program (up to $50,000) for golf events which is executed through a separate partnership agreement with Aviva Insurance.
“TournamentCaddie is dedicated to supporting the thousands of event organizers that volunteer their time to raise money for worthwhile causes,” said TournamentCaddie CEO Donal Byrne. “Our platform isn't a traditional tournament management system in that we don’t focus on scoring, leaderboards or other competitive event features. Our focus is the event management experience—saving time, effort and expense for tournament organizers while providing a turnkey platform that can deliver event management activities and features with a few clicks of the mouse.”
The TournamentCaddie solution is free for organizers to set up their event experience within minutes. The platform charges a $4 service fee per each event participant which is billed through a secure, one-stop registration process. The service fee offsets traditional costs associated with website hosting or event management fees as well as manual costs to execute registration, task management, sponsorship, donation contributions, event-day activities, and post-event follow-up.
A TournamentCaddie event websites can be created FREE and launched live in minutes including a full registration experience, host course information, branding and sponsor logos.
