Tournament management

Create tournament in PC CADDIE

Of course, this guide cannot replace the Online documentation for Pcc's tournaments, this is referring to the tournament management in PC CADDIE relevant for the PC CADDIE://online tournament management.

First, create any tournament in PC CADDIE; the marked fields are of particular importance for the module:

EntryEnter here the maximum handicap that should be accepted for registration.
Prizes/CategoriesAt the latest before transferring the results, you must also set the appropriate prizes for the tournament. If you do not specify them, a list “gross total” and a “net total” will be generated as result lists.

Click on the button Internet after finishing creating the tournament.

HINT: Always jump from field to field with the handy tab key.

Please make it a rule not to enter as much information as possible, and as many check-marks as possible, but only what is necessary.

We start with the tab Information:

RemarkThe remark appears in the header of the start and result list; for example, a catering information could be entered, or the indication that some changes are still possible.
Entry fee info and StartThese are displayed on the Internet directly as you enter them here.
Display statusShould be on “Entry, start and results lists”, otherwise no transfer of the tournament takes place.

Now switch to the tab Categories:

Gender onlyFor example, you can set here that only ladies are allowed to register for a women's tournament.
Age groupsThe age groups are especially interesting for senior days or for association games. These refer to the age groups deposited in PC CADDIE, which are prescribed by the association. You should not change these. There is also the possibility to activate other age groups.
Team announcementsChack this box as desired (only possible for golf clubs).

Now switch to the tab Number of players:

If you do not have any special provisions for guests, the same number must appear in the guest field.

Total participantsEnter here the maximum number of players allowed to participate in the tournament and the number of guests (the number you would also block in the timetable for the tournament). The guests are part of the participants. So in the above example, 50 people, of which up to 25 guests are allowed to participate in the tournament.
Internet registrationBe sure to enter the number of participants or guests that are allowed to register online.
Waiting listIf you want to use the waiting list management of PC CADDIE, enter a corresponding value here as well.
Allow these guestsSet additional criteria (see the following picture) for the guests on your system

Please note the individual start preference or the option of single players to enter foursomes.

If a player was allowed to specify a start request during the online registration, the tournament buffer in PC CADDIE looks as in the following screenshot:

As soon as you are in the player editor, a player with a given start request would have an “Information I” with an asterisk (). Clicking on it opens the following window:

  1. Here is the player's start request, namelly that he wants to play with Timo Tester.
  2. The player has also given a Priority. He would like to play early.

Detailed information can be found in the tab Record.

We now go to the index card Entry limits:

Here as well, you don't have to fill-out the guest fields if you have no special provisions for guests.

EntryGive your members the advantage of the first registration (2 weeks in this case); a longer registration on site would be possible. The registration deadline (REGISTRATION TO) must be filled out, nobody can sign in without a completed registration deadline.
HCP-LimitsThe statement “less is often more” is completely correct here.
Direct debit for Internet RegistrationYou can leave this deactivated, as in the example with the members, make available as a choice, or even make it mandatory, as it is set for the guests.

Open the last tab Functions:

Book direct debit for
Internet registration
Book the debits for the internet registration after the tournament.

HINT: Other buttons:

  • The button Copy (F6) kYou could copy already made settings from a similar tournament. Of course, the data still needs to be adjusted. But for the recurring monthly competitions this button can be very helpful. Always keep in mind that you are copying to a NEW tournament from an OLD tournament.
