Golf Genius Coming Soon
At the end of 2017, the Golf Association Services of the Carolinas (GASC) will switch from the GHIN Tournament Pairings Program (TPP) to Golf Genius, a quicker and easier-to-use program for residents and staff. 
 
The main difference in the two programs is the login process. Golf Genius requires each golfer to use their email address as their username in order to access the program. That requires each golfer to have their own email address. If you currently do not have an email address or if you share an email address with a spouse, you will need to get your own email address. Provide your new email address to the golf staff at any of the Sun City golf shops, and they will enter your new email address into the current TPP system prior to transition.
 
Golfers who are already registered and using TPP with a valid email address on file do not need to do anything prior to the changeover. The GASC will automatically upload Sun City’s current golfer profiles into Golf Genius so all golfer information, including email addresses, will be transferred over.
 
The GASC will provide the golf staff with an instructional video for login and navigation, which will be posted to the Sun City golf webpage, replacing the current TPP video online.
 
Stay tuned to eNews Weekly and the Golf eNewsletter for more information regarding the transition to Golf Genius. The switch to Golf Genius will not affect Sun City’s current GHIN Handicap Program as GHIN will still be used for score posting and handicap purposes.
