New Jersey/Pennsylvania Team Wins 2019 Writer Cup at Forsgate Country Club
The 12th annual Writer Cup, presented by Tagmarshal, at New Jersey’s Forsgate Country Club was captured by the team representing New Jersey/Pennsylvania media.
The Writer Cup is a popular match for bragging rights between journalists from the Metropolitan New York/National team and New Jersey/Pennsylvania team scribes. Forsgate Country Club created this spirited event and has hosted all 12 tournaments.
The sponsorship comes on the back of Tagmarshal’s partnership with the Metropolitan PGA, whose shared mission is to promote interest, participation and enjoyment in the game of golf.
A total of 63 players took to the field for the coveted Writer Cup title. For the event, Tagmarshal provided its golf course intelligence and pace-of-play management solution that enabled the club professionals to track each group’s progress on the course.
This opportunity was afforded to illustrate just how efficiently the Tournament Track solution can manage all types of competitions, from qualifiers and local competitions at the club level to tournaments, leagues, and Tours at the association and professional level.
The media group got the opportunity to experience practical, in-depth examples of the platform’s on-course experience and operational management functionalities, with access to their individual and the overall tournament performances, together with up-to-the-second tracking of results.
At the celebration dinner, which consisted of a traditional steak and lobster dinner, Chris Schiavone, Forsgate’s Managing Partner, was presented with a charitable donation to the Forsgate Foundation by Bodo Sieber, Tagmarshal’s CEO. The Forsgate Foundation benefits a variety of community service organizations and area caddie scholarships.
Beyond Tournament Track, Tagmarshal also provides premium and core systems, used in day to day golf operations to optimize the on-course experience for members and guests, which have enjoyed rapid adoption and positive results with partner courses in the NY Met region.
