Registration for the 2019 golf tournament season is now officially open. This year we have changed platforms and will be using the Golf Genius Tournament Management program. To help with any confusion, here are a few tips to prepare you for the registration process.
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, visit: Get/Renew an Eclub Handicap.
To renew your GHIN number at your local golf club, contact your pro shop and pay their annual renewal fee.
Create a Player Profile in Golf Genius
In order to register for tournaments, players must first have a player profile through Golf Genius.
If you have played in KCGA events in 2018, you will have received an email with specific instructions to create a password under the email we have on file.
If you are a new player to KCGA events, please create a new player profile by clicking on the “Sign In/Register” button.
If you attempt to register and receive a notice that your email address is already in use, please contact the KCGA staff at (913)-649-5242 before creating a duplicate profile.
Visit the player profile registration page.
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”.
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.
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.
Contact the KCGA with any questions
On March 1, the KCGA staff will be prepared for any questions or issues regarding registration. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Give us a call at (913) 649-5242. Any extension will be available to help you with this process. We look forward to a great 2019 season!
