There are many exciting things that will happen this year in the Utah Junior Golf Association. Soon, the UJGA will change over from this website to our updated version, exciting! Another great addition for 2016 will be the introduction of our new tournament software program. We are excited to now release that we will be using BlueGolf as our tournament administration program, this is very exciting as this change will bring many new and innovative programs to our association. These will include but not be limited to:
- On-Line registration from your computer and smart phone (app soon to be available).
- Membership options that will provide an opportunity for the player to create a player profile (a valuable tool for College Coaches to view)
- On-line leaderboards that will be updated during and “quickly” after a tournament round is complete.
- Notification by email of tournament start times and results.
These are just a few……
We welcome you to come and join us at our annual UGJA Sign-up at the Thanksgiving Point Clubhouse on Saturday, February 20th. This will be a great opportunity for players and parents to learn more about our program. We will continue with our tradition of the Sign-up being the first opportunity to sign-up for UGJA tournaments as well as membership. As always, we will be in the upstairs conference room at the clubhouse from 9:00 am to noon, don’t miss it!
