The thing about golf moving into the digital era is the dearth of independent Australian feedback and review of the various club software management systems. The management of many clubs outside of the urban areas is still voluntary manual accounting without specific Golf software. For some there is not even the swipe system in place as you turn up to play your round at a rural club. They are volunteer operated a paid greens keeper with perhaps a part time secretary or club members collecting green fees etc. They simply operate to play golf with no major income outside annual memberships. 80% of Australians do live in urban areas There is a lot more rural golfers playing at 5 times the number of clubs.

This is not a thread for the usual banter and throw out wit of posters, its purpose is to get the user opinions from their experience with the various , software systems.
At my club the committee is looking at making that transition into installing a golf club software system which is going to be up to an $8,000 outlay. We are golfers first, filling the positions of captains, treasurer, general committee members etc. to operate the club. setting up programs, starting competitions on our days off then going out playing as well. Yes we are employed and run a variety of businesses.
The software packages that I am aware of include MiClub, Pricap (Slice), the micropower integrated business solutions PowerPlus Golf just to name a few. I did a search and there are no independent reviews or comments by users that come up. Do the same for phone, a tablet or a software package in general and there is some information sites that deliver.
Did find this one commentary of system use "The Brisbane Golf Club will return to using MiClub golf software to run its golf operations effective from Monday, 15 October 2018. The Club moved its finance, membership and point of sale software to Mpower in 2017 and a few months later also installed the Mpower golf software in order to run a fully integrated system." https://www.brisbane...-golf-software/
The forum is now open for your experiences and if you have first hand practical application of the various software packages in your regular golfing life work wise your contributions will be much appreciated.
