GCS Software on User Friendly Touch Screen Terminals

We recognise however that not all of these features are applicable at all courses and importantly have provided the ability to selectively enable or disable options on a per-computer basis to suit various methods of operation.

Some clubs have no interest in allowing members to enter their own scores.

Members and guests can interact with the GCS golf management systems via one or more touch screen terminals located in publicly accessible areas of the clubhouse or environs. We've developed a software application that provides a variety of features that members and guests can interact with directly. We've called the application TSE... an initialism for touch screen entry.

We recognise however that not all of these features are applicable at all courses and importantly have provided the ability to selectively enable or disable options on a per-computer basis to suit various methods of operation. Some clubs have no interest in allowing members to enter their own scores for example, while others embrace it wholeheartedly.

While touch-screen technology is not mandatory, (the application can be accessed via mouse) presenting only a touch screen reduces the chance of anyone maliciously tampering with the computer system from a public terminal (without access to a mouse and keyboard) and that the usability of the system is maximised. Acceptance of the touch screen interface by members has been excellent.

Visitor logon via the touch screen terminal can be by card swipe or input of the visitor's GOLFLink number. This immediately retrieves the player's details from the GOLFLink database, ensuring that name, handicap, home club, gender and golf union ID are correctly recorded back to the club's local database. Visitors can join into competition events in the same manner as members, provided that the event is open to visitor entry. Visitors can also enter scores into the touch screen in the same manner that a member is able to do so.

Lookup of player’s GA Handicaps from GOLFLink is virtually instant from the kiosks. Where the player is booked into a competition the calculation of the Daily Handicap is presented on the screen. Similarly, where scorecard printing is initiated from a kiosk and further handicap lookup is performed to ensure that handicaps on printed scorecards are as accurate as possible.

Kiosks are frequently coupled with eScore readers to scan GCS eScore electronic scorecards. Presentation of the scorecard to the reader automatically logs the player in and presents the populated scorecard and calculated gross, net and/or points. A single touch will accept the score and log the player off, so could not be any simpler. Scores are fed automatically to online and television leader boards, and are ready for processing through to GOLFLink for handicapping purposes.

Golf Manager is a prerequisite of operating TSE.
