Golf Genius continues impressive WHS growth with Swiss Golf accreditation

Swiss Golf has become the latest governing body to provide World Handicapping System (WHS) accreditation to Golf Genius, the leading provider of cloud-based golf software solutions, for its renowned Tournament Management software.

The news means Golf Genius can fully integrate into the Swiss Golf WHS database and provide customers with the following functions relating to digital handicapped golf events:

  • Synchronise WHS compliant golf course scorecards
  • Synchronise members from the Swiss WHS database for automatic handicap index updates
  • Access to the entire WHS database to easily add guests from other clubs into competitions and validate their handicap index
  • Post scores back to the WHS database for handicapping purposes
  • A custom club mobile app that allows golfers to post general play scores

Golf Genius has led the way with WHS accreditations since the new system was introduced, with Swiss Golf joining many other governing bodies to have done so, including the Netherlands Golf Federation; each golf association in the United Kingdom & Ireland; GolfRSA; Golf Australia; and Golf New Zealand.

Through this WHS accreditation, every golf facility in Switzerland can now connect with Golf Genius Tournament Management and follow other users in the country that are running digital handicapped golf events.

One of those users is Gavin Healey, Founder of the Swiss Pro Series and President of the Swiss PGA, who has been using Golf Genius Tournament Management for over six years: “I introduced Golf Genius from the very start because of their live scoring capabilities. It has been so successful in our professional events, that we hope to implement the Golf Genius tournament management system into our amateur events over the coming months.”

Craig Higgs, Managing Director of Golf Genius International added: Announcing Swiss Golf to our portfolio of WHS accreditations is another significant moment for Golf Genius, as our drive to offer different regions a more unified solution to run their events grows.

“We pride ourselves on the way we listen to our customer’s needs and on the way we work with local WHS suppliers, such as GolfBox, as well. By taking this collaborative approach, we can ensure that this WHS accreditation is going to help every adopter of Golf Genius to improve their efficiencies and elevate their event offerings.
