An established tournament of 19 years and counting, the Latino Golf Classic started as an annual outing for Mike Perez before he took over as organizer three years ago.
Raising funds for Laramie Community College scholarships, Mike took the reins to continue the tournament’s tradition of gathering friends over golf to make an impact.
Seeking a solution to make his planning process easier, and to offer up a convenient registration process for players, Mike came across Event Caddy PRO and hasn’t looked back since. In fact, he says, “I tell everybody about it!”
Watch the video and read on to learn more about Mike's experience as a charity tournament organizer with Event Caddy on his side:
Why Mike Chose Event Caddy: “I heard (our golfers) wanted an easier way to pay.”
When initially searching online for a solution, Mike explained that he was “looking for something that will help me out,” as the tournament management “had no infrastructure.”
“I had heard (golfers) wanted an easy way to pay, and do things online” he added. And after a quick Google search, he came across Event Caddy’s all-in-one platform, explored the reviews, and signed right up.
Not only do his golfers “love the process” of registering and paying online via his Event Caddy tournament website, “the course loves that we use this process because they don’t have to deal with any money, they don’t have to deal with any registration.”
“It’s simple for them, for myself, and for the players.”
Working with the Event Caddy Team: “It’s unmatched.”
From his first demo with Event Caddy Tournament Specialist, Liam, Mike said he “saw how easy it was to use.” Adding that, “I'm not as sophisticated with building websites and... you guys did everything on the back end and helped me migrate to have my own link.”
“It’s unmatched. It's easy. You guys respond right away,” Mike explained.
On Event Caddy’s features: “They’re all so good!”
While Mike loves the easy online payments and ability to build sponsorships on his Event Caddy platform, one of his favorite features are tools for golfer communications:
“I think the emails and the text messages are a pretty cool feature”, he told us. “Sending the emails out to the players, and then also the text messages as we get closer to the tournament, which you just send out... reminding them that you have a tournament coming up” is a huge bonus, he added.
