Breaking Down Registration One Step at a Time

Do You Have an Active GHIN Number?

To be eligible to play in any CLG events, players must have an active GHIN number. Players can get a GHIN number through their golf club or through an online eClub.

For instructions on how to get/renew a GHIN number through our various eClubs, visit here: https://www.golfnations.com/central-links-golf/

When doing so, please make sure to select the eClub that matches the county/zip code you live in. Under each option a drop down will allow you to see what counties are associated with each eClub.

To renew your GHIN number at your local golf club, contact the pro shop directly.


Log In to Your Player Profile in Golf Genius

In order to register for tournaments, players must have a player profile through our tournament management program called Golf Genius. If you had a player profile with the KCGA or KGA, your log in information will be the same as last year.

To access the player profile registration page, visit here: https://www.golfgenius.com/pages/1297184

If you did not have a profile with the KCGA or KGA, you will need to register and create a player profile using your GHIN number and last name.

Once you have filled out the required fields, click “Register”. At this point, players will need to read through the CLG and USGA Terms and Conditions. Click the two boxes to show that you acknowledge each Terms & Conditions and click “Next”.

Please read over the instructions on the registration page if unsure about what to do or contact a CLG staff member at (913)-649-5242 or (785)-842-4833 so you don’t accidentally create a duplicate profile.


Purchase a Membership Program

If you plan to play on any of our various tour programs such as Stateline Amateur, Senior Series, Mid-Am Series or Junior Tour, you must first register for that membership program before tournaments are available to you. Below are the fees for each membership program. Click on the name of the program to learn more about it before registering.

Stateline Amateur Tour – $50
KC Junior Tour – $40
KS Junior Tour – $25
Senior Series – $65
Mid-Am Series – $35

Once you have completed your player profile or are logged in under your old profile, click on the Purchase Membership Program tab. You will see all five of our membership programs listed. Click the “Add to Cart” button next to the membership program you would like to play on.

A “Membership Programs Cart” button will appear in the right-hand corner prompting you to “Click to Checkout”. It will ask you for information in order to bill for payment. Once you have completed the information and billing tabs, you will successfully be signed up for your membership program.

If you have questions regarding a membership program, please reach out to a staff member before signing up for it.

Sign Up for Individual Tournaments

To sign up for individual events, hover your mouse over the “Register for Events” tab. Under this tab, you will see a list of categories for all our events. You can search for an event based on category such as Juniors or Men’s events or you can click on “All Events”. On this page, you will be able to scroll and see every event the CLG will host this season.

Find the specific event you want to register for and click on the name of the event. It will take you to an information page, where you will see a “Register Now For ____” button on the left margin. Click “New Registration” on the following page and follow the instructions for that event.

Continue this process for each event you wish to register for. If you try to sign up for a junior tour event or a senior series event without first purchasing the membership program you will not be able to sign up for an individual tournament.


Sign Up for Team Events

When signing up for team events, both players must have a player profile in order to enter the event properly.


Contact the CLG Staff with Any Questions

Give us a call at (913) 649-5242 or (785) 842-4833. Any extension will be available to help you with this process. We look forward to a great 2020 season!

Introducing the 2019 Junior Ambassadors Team

 

The New Junior Ambassadors Program

This year we are excited to announce a new program within the Kansas City Junior Tour: the KC Junior Ambassadors. The mission of the Junior Ambassador program is to not only promote the game of golf to everyone in the Kansas City area, but also to encourage players who have never played before to join. Junior Ambassadors were invited based on their friendly and positive attitude as well as their dedication to helping and encouraging players of all talent levels on the Kansas City Junior Tour this summer.

Junior Ambassadors will be tasked with inviting new players to join the Kansas City Junior Tour as well as being a point of contact for those who have questions or are unsure of what to do at a Kansas City Junior Tour event. We are excited about the great group of kids that have accepted their invitation to be a part of the Inaugural Junior Ambassador Program. We hope to keep young players involved in golf no matter their playing level. Whether you shoot in the 70’s and 80’s or you are just picking up a golf club, there is always a spot for you on the Kansas City Junior Tour.
