The tournament section can be found under our Events module:

Initial Setup: if you are a multi-course operator, ensure you are on the right course prior to setting up your tournaments!

  • Select Events in the sidebar menu

  • Click on Add in the top right hand corner and select "Tournaments"

  • Name the tournament, select a date and schedule (number of tee times to accommodate the size of the tournament), and describe the event.

Configuring Tee Times: 

  • Tee times: Choose between a standard, crossover, shotgun, or custom start.

  • Select the interval between each tee time.

Configuring Booking Options:

  • Assign the corresponding tournament price sheet or create and assign a new one in the same flow (based on the season, group size, and day of the week).

  • Do NOT enable Online Booking if you don't want players to book online.

Important Note: The event can be hidden from the booking widget, should you want to make this private. This event will still appear on the booking widget to

Setting The Recurrence:

  • Add the recurrence (if applicable), then configure that recurrence.

  • Choose daily, weekly, or monthly.

  • Choose the number of instances per day/week/month.

  • Select the day of the month (ie. the 15th) or the day of the week (ie. Monday).

  • Select the corresponding days.

  • Enter the date of the last booking.

In the example below, we have chosen a monthly event that recurs on the first Tuesday of each month for one year.

  Adding Bookings:

  • In the Events calendar, click on the first instance of the event.

  • Select tee times.

  • Click on the "+" sign in the fourth slot of the first tee time.

Follow this process when adding the bookings should you want to make it easy for your staff
