Faldo Series to be powered by Golf Genius from 2024 onwards

Golf Genius, the leading provider of cloud-based golf software solutions, has announced the Faldo Series as a new customer, effective immediately.

Faldo Series will utilise Golf Genius Tournament Management to elevate the end-to-end golfer experience across its three tours – Elite, Junior, and Futures – with elements such as Series Calendars, WHS Handicapping, Online Registration, Payment Processing, Live Scoring and Golfer Communications.

“The Faldo family have contributed significantly to the development of golf, in particular junior golf, so we are delighted to be helping them grow the series even further by enhancing their golfer’s enjoyment through our technology,” commented Craig Higgs, Managing Director of Golf Genius International.

In keeping with the WAGR status of many of Faldo Series’ events, the software will feed-in various elements of external data to allocate and award world amateur ranking points, and automatically communicate up-to-date information with players and parents throughout the tournament process.

Designed for young people from the age of 7 to 25 years old, the Faldo Series has three levels of inclusive events to compete in high level amateur events with the goal of accessing professional tour events and have fun whilst doing it: the Futures, Junior, and Elite Tour’s.

The Futures, new to the 2024 schedule, is a national competition open to any youngster between 7-12 years old. Starting with qualifiers at local clubs, regional finals across the country, and finishing with The Faldo Futures Final, Golf Genius will offer a unique solution for more junior golfers who will get to play some exciting, competitive golf.

“Delivering our tournaments through Golf Genius will be a game changer for the Faldo Series, as it will allow us to create an enhanced, digitally motivated experience for every golfer that participates, whilst keeping all the administration and player information in one place,” said Director of Faldo Series, Matthew Faldo.

“We look forward to seeing the positive impact Golf Genius Tournament Management will have across our three tours and our overall administration of them throughout the 2024 season.”
