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

    2018 - Northstone CC

    Northstone CC - 2018 Recap

    On Saturday, 114 players Teed it up at Northstone CC on a hot and humid afternoon.  For a time, the sky’s darkened and it appeared that we were minutes away from being called off the golf course, but as luck would have it, Lake Norman caused the storm to disappear in the nick of time and we got the round completed as intended.

    Championship Flight

    In the Championship Flight, we had our only on-course playoff with John Heffernan and Brian McGowan both finishing at 73 (+1).  It took two extra holes and it was Heffernan pulling out the victory with a par on the second playoff hole.  3rd place went to Daniel Jackson with a 75 (+3) and the 4th and final paying spot went to Mark Ballew with a score of 77 (+5)

    A Flight

    In the A Flight, Northstone Member, Whit Fairer 73 (+1) put his local course knowledge and a nice Eagle on 12 to secure a 4 stroke victory shooting his best round on tour this year.  With the eagle on 12, Whit also collected a flight skin and super skin on the day and an extra $278 .  2nd place went to Clabie Edmond who played in the same group shot 77 (+5).  3rd place went to Joe Zabrecky who beat out Paul Aschman on the scorecard playoff, both players shooting 78 (+6).

    B Flight

    In the B Flight, it was Chuck Young with a great round of 80 (+8) to secure a 1 shot victory over Local Northstone resident John Andersen who shot 81 (+9).  3rd, 4th and 5th had to be settled with a scorecard playoff as we had 3 golfers tie with scores of 82 (+10).  In the end, David Aussicker was 3rd, Allen Hagen was 4th and Xin Zhang took home 5th.  Rounding out the top 6 and final paying position was Ben Hughes who show 83 (+11).

    C Flight

    In the C Flight, Michael Guarino who shot 86 (+14), grabbed a one shot victory and more importantly his first ever tour win.  Michael has been close over the past two years but has always come up a little short, but not today.  Mike Carson who shot 87 (+15) took home 2nd place.  3rd and 4th place was decided by a scorecard playoff where James Carey beat Andrew Schwab, both players shooting 88 (+16).

    D Flight

    In the D Flight, Northstone member Phil Waldier took home his first victory of the year shooting 88 (+16).  Eric Herman took home second shooting 91 (+19) and Keith Gibson rounded out the top 3 with a score of 92 (+20).

    Thanks again to all the players for coming out on the hot afternoon to continue our streaks of sell outs.  Our next event takes us to Cabarrus Country Club in Concord.  We have a limited field of 96 players so do not delay in completing your registration (Signing up and paying).
