All-in-one golf operations management – that’s exactly what Club Caddie delivers. The Michigan-based software company, backed by Jonas Software, specializes in core management software for small, large, public, and semi-private golf clubs across North America. It is owned and operated by enterprising golf course operators as an answer to their challenges of running profitable golf operations in today’s market.


Payment processing is a major component of the Club Caddie software suite, used for everything from pro shop sales and golf club halfway house purchases to tee sheet reservations, event booking and member management and billing.


“At Jonas Club Software we push ourselves to innovate on every aspect of member interaction at a club. Mobility in all forms, including the ability to pay anywhere, has been a major request from the clubs we serve,” said Jonas Club Software President Joe Oswald. “In working with First American, Club Caddie now has the ability to use the PAX D220 to safely and securely take payments anywhere a club wants to process transactions.”


When evaluating potential payment processing partners, Club Caddie vetted numerous providers, ultimately selecting First American for its nimble payment technology, successful integration track record, and depth of expertise within the golf industry.

"With the adoption of EMV, operators are seeing a wave of transformation in the way transactions occur,” said Club Caddie COO Ian Brigmann. “Similar to how Magtek had set the industry standard, First American and PAX are now paving the way with unmatched security, reliability, and near instant transaction speed. Club Caddie is happy to announce that we are leading the industry with the adoption of the mobile D220 solution.”


“The scale of Club Caddie’s business alone requires a partnership with only the best of the best in payment processing,” said First American Account Executive Jennifer Cunningham, who helped solidify the agreement. “Club Caddie is a top-flight software company, highly regarded in their vertical and they continue to grow. This is the start of a phenomenal partnership. We will produce great results together.”
