Impact Tournament Systems offer premier golf-event scoring and presentation software that has changed the way Golf Professionals plan, run and execute their tournaments and club competitions. 
Impact's software was designed by individuals who are experienced with running golf tournaments and know first-hand some of the frustrations event managers encounter behind the scenes. Its user-friendly interface makes event setup, score entry and output an easy, hassle-free process for any kind of tournament or league. Impact keeps your participants engaged before, during and after your event as well thanks to its array of presentation options, including real-time live scoring and on-screen displays to report results and other tournament info, acknowledge sponsors and more on-site at your event. 
Impact Tournament Systems is an Affiliate Partner of the Association and the official scoring software used by the PGA of BC.

Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan is now in effect, and our members and facilities are reminded of the impacts relevant to the golf industry, including in retail, food & beverage and office environments.

Earlier this week, the PGA of BC published a number of resources from WorkSafeBC and provincial health authorities outlining the crucial steps in re-opening additional segments of golf facilities. These include developing a COVID-19 Safety Plan, best practices in welcoming patrons back to pro shops and restaurants, and more. Click below to access these Phase 2 recommendations and resources.

Updated resources also include best practices on coaching and teaching from the PGA of America, and Frequently Asked Questions about the return of sport from viaSport.
The PGA of Canada announced this week that the national Player Rankings will be paused for 2020, while the PGA Championship of Canada has been postponed.

The decisions come amid nationwide uncertainty on zone and national championships due to ongoing challenges related to COVID-19. The suspension of the PGA of Canada Player Rankings also means that PGA of BC Professionals will not be subject to any disadvantage compared to their colleagues from other zones due to the cancellation of our 2020 Assistants' Championship. The current rankings will carry over to the 2021 season.

Meanwhile, the PGA Championship of Canada presented by TaylorMade & adidas Golf was scheduled for July 6-10 at Edmonton's Royal Mayfair Golf Club, but will not be able to accommodate a later date in the season. PGA of Canada officials stated that they will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments across the country and evaluate opportunities to conduct the championship elsewhere later this season.

Dates and locations for the 2021 and 2022 events remain on hold as the partner associations await clarity on the future of public events and related health risks.

Apprentice Professionals needing to complete their Instructor of Beginner Golfers workshop are advised that registration is open now for an October session scheduled in Richmond.

The three-day seminar will be held Oct. 5-7 at Mayfair Lakes Golf & Country Club, administered by PGA of BC Professional Doug Hastie (British Columbia Golf). The deadline to register is Sept. 21.

Apprentice Professionals are reminded that Instructor of Beginner Golfers is one of four PGA of Canada Training Academy core courses that must be completed in the first full calendar year of membership (ie. the year after passing a PAT or being granted an exemption) to avoid being placed in the Inactive category. Typically, only one workshop is held in BC per year, so don't miss out on this required course.
