Golfing Societies have matches and meetings that are generally organised by the Society secretary. Members of the Society are invited to sign-up for the meeting and they need to pay. Managing meetings is a fairly straightforward process but these days tends to involve multiple emails, spreadsheets and chasing for cash or cheques on the day.
One of the peculiarities of Golfing Societies is Match Management. In a Golf Club, this is fairly easy; the secretary pins up a list on the noticeboard in the clubhouse and members express their interest by writing their names on the list. Clearly, a golf society does not have a clubhouse and the Golfing Society members can be spread far and wide. A further complication is that a Golfing Society, each match tends to have a Match Manager. The Match Manger is responsible for the fixture but generally doesn’t have the ability to contact all of the Golfing Society members.
Usually the Golfing Society Secretary will put out a fixture list and then invite the members to express their interest in matches via email – a lot of work and a series of complicated spreadsheets later, the secretary sends out lists to the Match Managers. The Match Manager then has to manually transfer contact details and start to email those that have expressed their interest – all time consuming and often exasperating. Our Match Management Module takes all of the pain away. Golfing Society members just go to the Matches and Meeting section, and express their interest with a single click. The Match Manager receives the request and a mailing list is built by the system so that the Match Manager can communicate right from the Golfing Society Website or from their normal email client.
