Breaking News!!!

The March 24th, Country Club of Salisbury Event  has been Rescheduled to June 2nd.  This decision came about after many discussions with the course about the playability of the course due to the weather forecasted for this Saturday.  

I'll be updating the registration links to correct this on the schedule and allow for people that want to enter the event on June 2nd.

Next Event: Cedarwood Countyr Club

The next event on the Charlotte Schedule is our first non-weekend event of the season.  On Monday April 9th, we will be at Cedarwood Country Club in Charlotte for our 4th event of the season.  Cedarwood hosted the first round of the Charlotte City Amateur lst year and is a great Private Course in the Charlotte area.  Register and Pay to guarantee your spot in the field.  All payments should be received by April 2nd or your name will be removed from teh Who's Playing list.  

As of 3/23/2018 we had only 40 spots remaining in the field, so I encourage anyone that is interested in particiapting to register and pay asap to guarantee your spot in the field.

Practice Round Information:  TBD

Tee Boxes: TBD

Announcement:  Congratualtions to one of our own.....  On Monday, March 19th, Jerell Fields (Champ Flight) was the medalist at the 38th Carolinas Mid-Amateur Qualifier at Raintree CC (North).  Jerell shot a 5 under par 67 on his way to the medalist postion.  In total, 7 members of the Charlotte Tour competed on Monday.  The only other player to qualify was David Boyce (Champ flight) with a  score of 74.  

From all of us on the tour, congratulations and Good Luck in the next round.

Note to new and returning members.  
We sold out all of our early season tournaments so please do not wait until the last minute to register and pay for this event as I expect it will sell out in the next couple of weeks.  Also...Registering and Paying is the only way to guarantee your spot.  Registering gets your name on the Who's playing list but unless you have paid, your spot is not guaranteed.  All payments are expected in advance, no on-site payments. Also, returning players, please ensure that you have completed the Annual Registration "Join the tour" and paid your annual membership fee. Without completing these two items, I cannot enter you into any events until those items are complete. 
Thanks  Phil

For those that are new to the tour, let me outline a few of the nuances to the Charlotte events.   

  1. All Charlotte events are SHOTGUN starts, meaning everyone will leave the clubhouse at the same time and head out to their starting holes where play will begin.
  2. Your Tour Membership package will be given to you at your first local tournament you play in.  Carolina Lakes Feb. 3rd kicks off the regular Charlotte Tour season!
  3. We utilize Live Scoring in all events.  We added this last year and it was a huge success.  Not only can you track your progress against the field during the event, but so can your family and friends, no matter where they are.
  4. Side Cash Games.  These are all optional.
    • Flight Skins Games (only eligible for one depending on flight)
      • Champ and A Flight combined ($10 entry)
      • (B, C and D Flight) combined ($10 entry)
    • Super Skins Game 
      • All Flights combined ($10 entry)
    • Pins (aka closest to the Pin) (All Flights combined) ($5 entry)
      • Example 100 entries at $5 a piece = $500 in prize fund.
      • 4 total par 3's = $500/4 for a prize of $125 per par 3 closest to the pin.
  5. Charitable contribution
    • Each tournament (non-major) we run a 50/50 draw for "Stand Up to Cancer" (SUTC)
      • 50% of all proceeds donated to "SUTC"
      • 50% of all proceeds given to winning ticket holder.
      • secondary draws will take place depending on sponsor gifts (ie. Golf Balls)
Playing - Other Tour Events.  

The ability to play on any AGT tour event accross the country is a great benefit.  However, I need to know IN ADVANCE if you want these points to count for a missed event on the CLT tour.  If you want the (adjusted) points to count, I need to know which event you will be missing.  Also..a single day event can be replaced with another single day event and a 2 day major can be replaced with a local 2 day major.  Just send me a quick email outlining the event you are playing and the event you will be missing.  Thanks...Phil

    Gentry, Moss, Ahlers, Casper, Osborne win at Cowans Ford

    2018 Cowans Ford

    Cowans Ford CC - Recap

    119 golfers turned out on a wonderful Saturday afternoon at our first Private Course on Lake Norman.  The weatherman had predicted the possibility of a small rain shower through the day, but happily for all of us, this did not occur.  Although the course was dormant due to the recent spell of cold weather leading up to the event, the greens were in excellent condition.  

    In the Championship Flight, this battle came down to the last hole.  Mike Gentry was holding a small 1 shot lead heading into his final 2 holes (18 and 1) both par 5's.  Mike came away with a bogie on 18 to put him in a Tie for first, then on Hole number 1 (his final hole), he made Birdie to reclaim the lead and take home top honors.  Mike finished the day at 73 (+1), Joe Jaspers making his 2018 debut, finished solo second at 74 (+2), Jeff Malone had his best finish of the year capturing 3rd place with a 75 and Jay Barnes took home 4th place honors beating David Schmidt on a scorecard playoff (both players shot 77 (+5)

    In the A Flight, 18 holes was not enough.  After 18 holes, three golfers went back on the course to see who would take home top honors.  Jason Breedlove, Paul Aschmann and Darryl Moss all tied for the lead with scores of 80 (+8).  It only took one hole as Darryl Moss was able to par the difficult par 4, 10th hole and walk away the winner.  Jason took home second beating Paul using the scorecard playoff to settle 2nd and 3rd.  Corey Davis took home 4th place honors beating Michael Brandenburg in another scorecard playoff.  Both Corey and Mike both shot 81 (+9).

    In the B Flight, Dan Ahlers continued his strong play of late and takes home the top prize with a winning score of 82 (+10).  James Burrell continues to play well and finished solo second shooting 83 (+11).  Dirk Krause finished solo third with a score of 84 (+12), Daniel (Flip) Flippo was solo 4th with a score of 85, but that is not all.  Flip's number was drawn prior to the round and was awarded $265 in Cash as the winner of our 50/50 draw (all proceeds going to Stand Up To Cancer).  5th and 6th came down to another scorecard playoff as Chuck Young and John Rinaldi both tied at 86 (+14).  Chuck took home 5th and John 6th place respectively.

    In the C Flight, Christian Casper came away with a convincing victory shooting 82 (+10).  I'm going to guess that the shoulder surgery is working quite well.  Ken Young and Glen Nutting, who played in the same group, tied for second shooting 88 (+16).  Ken took home second using the scorecard playoff method of tiebreaking.  Fourth place was also decided using this same method, In the end it was Scott Cain who edged out Michael Guarino, both players shot 90 on this day.

    In the D Flight it was newcomer, Shannon Osborne who walked away with a 4 shot victory shooting a great round of 91.  Dustin McClanahan was solo second shooting 95 (+23) and rounding out the top 3 was Raymond Hoerr shooting a score of 96 (+24).

    Reminder....These events are filling up sooner than some of you think...Due to our membership numbers, I highly recommend that you register and pay to confirm your spot in the field.  I usually have a waiting list and if you need to drop out, your money can be refunded provided you give me ample notice and a solid reason.  Dropping out the day of the event or not even contacting me will result in you forfeiting your entry fee.
