USGA TM Association Features Released

As many of you saw this morning, key player profile, event registration, season points and team matches features were released this morning to your USGA Tournament Management Association sites.

While we recognize this does not included all of the needed functionality, we do believe this is a great step forward to prepare for the complete transition from TPP Association to USGA TM Association.

We strongly encourage you to begin reviewing and testing these features and provide feedback to your account managers if the features are not operating as expected.

To better assist you with validating and using the new features, a test environment is now available for your use. Any staff members with a login account on the production site will be able to log in to the test site,, with the same credentials.

Your association test club on GHP has been loaded with various golfers to aid in your testing and evaluation process. The golfers are a mix of men, women, juniors, low Handicap Index, higher Handicap Index and seniors. These golfers can be used to simulate the golfer experience when creating a profile and registering for an event.

A few items of note on the test site:
