PUMA Open Competitions


The PUMA Open Competitions System provides all the functionality required to enable golf clubs/organisations to run Open Competitions. It can be used to run singles, pairs, AM-AM (team) or Texas scramble competitions and is in use by clubs and Counties across the country to enable them to run and manage their Open Competitions efficiently and effectively.

If you are you still writing cards by hand or struggling to quickly determine who has won then the PUMA Open Competitions System can help you.

Unfortunately it was not cost effective to obtain a license to link PUMA Open Competitions with the new WHS portal and therefore scores cannot be returned using the system nor current handicaps downloaded. However, the system will continue to be updated to comply with the latest CONGU© /WHS handicapping rules/guidance.

Q What does it Cost?

Each license costs £100 which includes your first year’s software support. It is entirely up to you thereafter whether or not you renew the support agreement that will expire at the end of each handicapping year. The support fee (currently £20) covers the cost of developing enhancements to the system and incorporating any changes to the CONGU©/WHS handicapping rules. Multiple copes of the system can be purchased at a reduced rate – please contact us with your requirements.
