Senior Men's Club help


If you are having problems registering for an event, please contact the event's Tournament Director.

If your GHIN is not recognized, please contact either the Senior Men's Club Adminstrator (Mike Sayer) or the Pasatiempo Administrative Office to register your GHIN.

For technical issues with this system, please contact the Senior Men's Club (SMC) Webmaster via email or phone: (831) 426-4949.

The Pro Shop staff is able to register you for an event if you are away from your computer or smart phone.


Browser Settings


Pop-ups are simply new browser windows that are opened by a website. They can be quite annoying if a website abuses this function. We recommend restricting pop-ups to and other trusted websites.


The SMC website requires cookies. If you have not allowed cookies from you will see a warning message and none of the navigation of this system will work!

Cookies are a way for your computer to remember information you entered. Cookies never leave your computer, so they will not harm your computer or reveal any personal information. Your browser will allow you to restrict which sites may set a cookie, so you can restrict the cookie function if you wish.



Your First Time

Click Login in the menu on the top right of the SMC Welcome page. Your GHIN, no dashes and no blanks, identifies you to the system. Obtain a password from the system by entering your GHIN, checking the Forgot Password box and clicking the Login button. You will receive a temporary password via email in approximately 5-10 minutes. Be sure that your email Contacts include as a valid contact.

If you don't receive the email with the temporary password within 5-10 minutes, the email showing your temporary password is likely in your junk/spam mail folder. Please look there before calling for assistance.

If your GHIN is not registered, you will get an error message. Otherwise, if the password email doesn't show up, it is most likely you have changed your email address since registering with the SMC. See Contacts above to change your email address.

After you receive your temporary password, you use it and enter a "New Password" when you next sign-on.

Forgot Password

If you forget your password, simply follow the "Your First Time" procedure.

Note to FireFox users: This browser has the annoying behavior of asking you what user you want to change the password for, even when not changing a password. You can turn off this behavior a number of ways:

Remember Me

You can be Login’ed in automatically by checking the Remember Me box on the Login page. To retain this setting, use Exit when leaving SMC. To change your mind and have the system "forget you", simply click Logout on the bottom of any screen.

GHIN, Password & Role combination is remembered within the system for one year. Using Remember Me with role set to Tournament Director is recommended for Tournament Directors.

The system uses a feature called Sessions to remember your information between pages. Sessions, as implemented here, depend on cookies; if you disable cookies, the system will stop working.


Unless you are a Tournament Director or Pro Shop staff, you can ignore Role. Tournament Directors can Login as either a Member or a Tournament Director. Only if you login as a TD, will you have the ability to manage events.


If you do not Login, you can still see all the events as an anonymous member. You will not be able to register for or cancel from any event.


Event Registration and Cancellation

Once you Login, clicking on an open event will register you for the event or cancel you if you are already registered. In either case, you will have the opportunity to confirm your action. After an event closes, you must contact the Tournament Director to register late or to cancel. If you have to cancel, please do so before the event closes.

If you cancel within 3 days of the event, you will be billed for the event fee. If you do not show up on the day of the event, you will be billed $150.

If you gain priority to an AWAY match by signing up for the HOME match, play in the AWAY match, and subsequently attempt to cancel out of the HOME match, your request will be rejected. You will need to contact the TD to cancel and you will be charged for the HOME match.

HOME Event Occurs Before AWAY Event

When you are registering for an AWAY event that occurs before the HOME match, the system presents both matches.

The system DOESN'T assume you are committing to the Home match; you must positively indicate that choice by clicking the Home match.



The menu, listed at the top right and in blue, is best used to move around the various pages of the system.

Event Pages

Events are listed on two main pages:

Color coding is used to show the status of your event registration:

  • Confirmed
  • Wait List
  • Tentative Wait List
  • Cancelled

My Events

The top half of this page shows the events you are registered for. Clicking on an event link in this section will take you to the Cancellation page.

The bottom half shows the remaining events which are available for registration. Clicking on these event links will take you to the Registration page.

Senior Men’s Club

This page shows all the remaining events which are available for registration. Clicking on these event links will take you to the Registration page.

Viewing Event Rosters

Click on the confirmed number in the Players column to view the event roster.


Event Timeline

Events have a defined timeline, as shown below:

Event PhaseDefinition
Setup:Event is being planned; not open for registration
preWarn:Event is open for registration
Warn:Event is open but has only a few days remaining before closing
1 Day:Event will close within approximately 1 day
Today:Event will close today
Closed:Event is closed; you must contact the TD to register/cancel
Now:Event underway
Over:Event has concluded
Completed:TD has submitted final roster for billing

Typically, an event closes three days prior to the event date. The Tournament Director may close an event earlier, for example, when an event is already at maximum players and there is a substantial Wait List.



When you register for an open event, you will either be immediately registered or placed on a Wait List (see below). Please register as soon as you are able to confirm your availabilty, but not before. If there are too many cancellations towards the end of the registration period, some members may not get to play even though there were slots.

Home & Away

When registrating for a HOME match and you want to play in the AWAY match, but the AWAY match is more than a month in the future, you will need to return to the system when the AWAY match opens. Priority for these future AWAY matches is on a first-come, first-served basis, except that those who signed up for the HOME match and did not cancel out of the HOME match, have priority over those who are just seeking the AWAY match.


Once you are confirmed for an event, you will stay on the confirmed list unless you cancel, with one important exception: If you cancel a HOME match, but are registered for the AWAY match, your confirmed status for the Away match changes to Tentative and you will drop to the Tentative List for the AWAY match.

If you are confirmed in both the AWAY and HOME matches, play in the AWAY match and subsequently attempt to cancel out of the HOME match, the system will reject your cancellation and ask you to contact the Tournament Director to cancel you and inform you of the charge for the HOME match.

After the event closes, the Tournament Director will fill out the roster from the Wait List. At this point, all confirmed players will receive an automatic confirmation email.

If a roster position subsequently opens up, the Tournament Director will contact players on the Wait List via phone. Please make sure the TD has your best contact number (see Member Update below). If you are on an event's Wait List, please continue to monitor your phone and emails.


You may cancel your registration any time up to the day the event closes. If you don't have access to a computer, you may call the Tournament Director or the Pro Shop; see note above regarding HOME and AWAY matches. After an event closes, only the Tournament Director may cancel your registration.

If you cancel from an event prior to the "Warn" date, it is removed from your events. After the "Warn" date, a cancelled event remains on the "My Events" list, showing as cancelled, so that later you have a record that you did cancel.

Tentative or Wait List

Tentative status for an AWAY match indicates you have not registered for the related HOME match. If you subsequently sign-up for the HOME match, your Tentative status will convert to Confirmed, provided there remains open slots. Wait List indicates that the maximum number of entries has been reached. You will be automatically promoted to Confirmed status if someone cancels or if the Tournament Director is able to increase the number of slots.

When there are both Tentative and Wait Listed players, the Wait Listed players have priority if any slots become available, since they have played in the related HOME match.

Special Requests

Entered at registration, requests are reviewed by the Tournament Director and honored, where feasible. Special requests are displayed on the event details page reached via the event details button.


Member Update

Members may update their contact information in the system. Click on "Member Update" and follow the directions. Note: Your nformation is strictly confidential and not released/shared with any third party, except for the Pasatiempo office.


"How" Codes

Tournament Directors see how a member's roster status was last changed. If the code starts with "TD-" or "M-", the Tournament Director or Member respectively took the action to make the roster change. The codes and their explanations are:

How CodeExplanation
OpenA slot opened and member was promoted from Wait List
WaitTried to register but there was no slots available
