We’re focused on two fundamental goals: making golf trips more fun and reducing work for the trip captain. The new iPad app helps us deliver on those goals in a very cool way.

GolfTripGenius.com announced that key features and functionality of its web-based service aimed at traveling golfers are now available as a new app on the Apple iPad.
Introduced earlier this year, GolfTripGenius.com helps golfers plan trips, set up pairings and manage tournaments, scoring and expenses.
The new iPad app allows GolfTripGenius.com customers to add to the fun and expand their mobility options while on a golf trip by using their iPad for scorecard entry and leaderboard display.
After their round, golfers can enter their scores on one of nearly 1,000 golf course scorecards accessible through the iPad app. (More courses are being added daily.) The players’ trip leaderboard is then automatically updated and shown on the iPad’s 9.7” LED-backlit display.
A video of the new iPad app shows how easy it is to use.
Mike Vallone said the iPad app decreased his work and added to the fun of a recent eight-player trip that he led to Las Vegas.
“I brought my iPad to the course, and as players came off 18, I quickly entered their scores,” said Vallone, an experienced golf trip captain from Cheshire, Conn. “On the shuttle back to the hotel, I announced the tournament and skins results. The guys were really impressed because it usually takes a while for someone to figure everything up. It was sure a lot easier for me.”
Mike Zisman, CEO of GolfTripGenius.com, said the introduction of the iPad app is consistent with consumers’ desire for ease of use, instant gratification and greater productivity through the use of their mobile devices.
“We’re focused on two fundamental goals: making golf trips more fun and reducing work for the trip captain,” said Zisman. “The new iPad app helps us deliver on those goals in a very cool way.”
The iPad, introduced by Apple in April, weighs only 1.6 pounds and fits easily into a small duffel bag or golf bag.
GolfTripGenius.com was launched in 2010 to introduce a new category of innovative, web-based golf travel solutions to traveling golfers, resort and golf destination managers and PGA Professionals. Powering these solutions is the first-time use of operations research programming and advanced mathematical algorithms applied to commercial golf scheduling and tournament design challenges. The resulting low cost, online products provide benefits that greatly enhance any golf trip experience.
