Apply to Play


The following are directions to assist you with using the tournament registration system. This year we are using a new software in Golf Genius, not the previous Tournament Pairing Program in the past. If you need assistance please call 913.649.5242 ext 0.

Do you have an active GHIN number?

To be eligible to play in any KCGA events, players must have an active GHIN handicap number. Players can get a GHIN number through their golf club or through the eClub of Kansas City.

For instructions on how to get/renew a GHIN number through the eClub of Kansas City, click here:

To renew your GHIN number at your local golf club, contact the pro shop and pay their annual renewal fee.

Create a Player Profile in Golf Genius

In order to register for tournaments, players must first create a player profile through Golf Genius. To access the player profile registration page, use the link below:

Once on the player profile registration homepage, players will need to click “Click Here to Register”. You will need to enter your GHIN Number and Last Name and fill out the following personal information page with the required fields.

Once you have filled out the required fields, click “Register”. At this point, players will need to read through the KCGA and USGA Terms and Conditions. Click the two boxes to show that you acknowledge each Terms & Conditions and click “Next”.

Purchase a Membership Program

If you plan to play on the Stateline Amateur Tour or the Kansas City Junior Tour, players must sign up for these membership programs before signing up for individual tournaments.

The Stateline Amateur Tour costs $50 and the Kansas City Junior Tour costs $40.

Once you have completed your player profile, make sure you are signed in. Go back to the homepage and sign in using the new email and password you made when creating your player profile.

Once you are signed in under your player profile, click on the “Purchase Membership Program” tab. You will see both the SLAT and KCJT listed. Click the “Add to Cart” button next to the membership program you would like to play on.

A “Membership Programs Cart” button will appear in the right-hand corner prompting you to “Click to Checkout”. It will ask you for information in order to bill for payment. Once you have completed the information and billing tabs, you will successfully be signed up for your membership program.

Sign up for Individual Tournaments

To sign up for individual events, hover your mouse over the “Register for Events” tab. Under this tab, you will see a list of categories for all our events. Click on “All Events”. On this page, you will be able to scroll and see every event the KCGA will host this season.

Find the specific event you want to register for and click on the name of the event. It will take you to an information page, where you will see a “Register Now For ____” button on the left margin. Click “New Registration on the following page and follow the instructions for that event.

Continue this process for each event you wish to register for. If you try to sign up for a KCJT or SLAT without first purchasing the membership program you will not be able to sign up for an individual tournament.
