Homestretch Golf is the first paperless solution for golf pari-mutuels. PGA Professional David Knox (Northern California PGA Section) created Homestretch Golf as a software solution to help his fellow PGA Professionals save massive amounts of administrative time normally associated with running golf pari-mutuels.
Here’s how it works:
Your participants can find their tournament on any internet-connected device such as their mobile phone (without the need for downloading any app) and instantly start browsing the field of players and saving pari-mutuel wagers on as many teams as desired. Homestretch Golf displays live odds to win in real-time as wagers are confirmed on-site by the Golf Professional, making the pari-mutuel process a more exciting and interactive experience for your participants. On the administrative end, Homestretch Golf completely eliminates the need for hard-copy wager slips, paper receipts, and any data entry into software or spreadsheets while making the payout process a breeze. Participants receive digital receipts once the Golf Professional confirms their wagers, and they also receive digital notifications of any winning wagers post-tournament adding to the interactive experience!
“My golfers quickly caught on and took part in the festivities. Our members loved the added Homestretch feature for our event. Homestretch Golf added excitement and perceived value to our Invitational!”
– Steve Cutler (Head Pro, Wynlakes Golf & Country Club – Montgomery, AL)
David’s idea for Homestretch Golf came out of years of running pari-mutuel golf events where he experienced the pain of dealing with paper slips, having to take the time to manually enter in each wager and then feel the stress of making sure the payouts were correct. Homestretch Golf allows PGA Professionals to tend to more of their event and reduce many error-prone pitfalls currently associated with offering pari-mutuels. Moreover, Homestretch Golf is proud to donate a portion of net proceeds to the American Cancer Society and believes that pari-mutuels are a great fundraising mechanism for charity tournaments worldwide.
Homestretch Golf launched in April, 2019, and a growing number of PGA Professionals are taking advantage of our solution to help them be the pari-mutuel experts at their club for their members. David sponsored the 2019 4-Pro Scramble, a Northern California PGA Section event, which had a field of over 100 PGA Professionals who enjoyed seeing Homestretch Golf in action and allowed for sponsor dollars from Homestretch Golf to contribute to the overall prize fund. The Northern California PGA Section enjoyed the newly found sponsorship dollars and the interactive wagering experience so much last year that Homestretch Golf will be serving again as a sponsor for the 2020 4-Pro Scramble as well as the 2020 Cal State Club Pro tournament where Pros and their Amateur partners alike will enjoy the paperless wagering experience.
