The Members of the Profesional Golfers of Kenya (PGK) are set to benefit from a Tournament Management System (TMS) after a partnership with Safaricom Kenya Limited that saw the golfers receive a KES 1 Million Sponsorship.

This comes only a few days after the communication service provider announced support for this year’s Barclays Kenya Open. The TMS Platform will host the website with information on players and tournaments that includes a full tour membership system, tournament entry option, player database and financial records.

Other information on the TMS will include tournament draws, score charts, cut and a result portal that is linked to the Professional Golfers' website giving members access on mobile as wells as email and SMS.

Founded in 1992, The Professional Golfers of Kenya have been managing the golf affairs in the country as an independent sports body and offering open membership to the East African Community.

During the unveiling of the partnership, Steve Okeyo, Regional Sales, and Operation Director reiterated on their desire to continue their investment in Sports as part of the communication firm's belief to attract and transform the lives of players.

PGK who have already tried the system in a series of Kenya Open qualifiers for their members stated how thrilled they are, to provide these digital services to their members. The platform has made tournament administration easier and they hope it will inspire young golfers to climb the career ladder as reported by the PGK Chairman Charan Thety.

The TMS platform, which was developed in the UK by OCS Sports, will be managed by the YPTR Division based in Kenya. PGK is committed to growing the sport in Kenya by attracting events year round and the TMS has just come right in time to take part in the revolution.
