Who's Playing

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 


  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)

    2018 Carolina Lakes

    Sun City - Carolina Lakes recap.

    Over 100 golfers braved the cold temperatures to start off the 2018 season.  Having a 1-hour delay starting at 12 noon, we knew that time was not on our side, but everyone did a great job in playing "Ready Golf".  Not only did everyone finish with time to spare, we also had 1 on-course playoff in the Champ Flight which was also completed without issue.

    Todd Burrell and his staff at Carolina Lakes were great hosts once again for our opening event to the season.  Now...On to the golf...

    Championship Flight: 

    Jim Aughty and John Heffernan tied after 18 holes, both players shooting 2 over par 74's.  John missed a 12 footer on 18 to seal the victory, and that ultimately cost him the tournament win.  Jim took charge in the playoff and came away with the victory with a par on the second playoff hole.  In 3rd place, David Boyce took the honors with a 4 over par round of 76.  Rounding out the top 4 was Travis Dodge shooting a round of 77.

    A Flight 

    3 strokes separated a very close battle in this flight today.  Jason Breedlove came away with a 1 shot victory shooting a great round fo 76 in the cold conditions.  3 golfers tied for 2nd all shooting 77, and based on the handicap hole playoff system, Mark Ballew took 2nd, Darryl Moss was 3rd and Michael Brandenburg took 4th.  5th and 6th places were also settled via a scorecard playoff.  Robert Taggart, Chance Grego, David Rotatori and Scott Ilowite all posted scores of 78, but it was Taggart taking 5th and Grego taking 6th and final paying position for the A flight on this day.

    B Flight 

    This proved to the be flight that had the largest margin of victory.  James Burrell birdied 3 of his final 5 holes to shoot an awesome round of 77 and win by 5 shots.  John Torres shot 82 and took home 2nd place honors.  John Rinaldi and Cliff Morgan tied for 3rd with scores of 83, but again it was Rinaldi taking 3rd based on the Scorecard Playoff.  John Page took home the final paying position today after winning a scorecard playoff with Allen Hagen and Dirk Krause.  All players shot 84.

    C Flight 

    Another close battle in this flight as the top 4 golfers were all within 3 shots of other.  New Comer, Xin Zhang took home his second victory in the last few weeks.  (He also took top honors in the C Flight at the Dixie Classic).  Xin shot 83 and took a 2 shot victory over Ken Young and another newcomer, Jimmy Chang.  Both players shot 85 but it was Ken that took hone 2nd place on the scorecard playoff.  Craig Brown took home the final placing spot with a score of 86.

    D Flight

     Again, another close battle with 2 shots separating the top 3 places.  Chris McGee comes away with a 2 shot victory shooting a score of 93.  Chandler Carter and Dannie Gay tied for 2nd with scores of 95, but it was Carter that took home second place, based on the scorecard playoff.

    Again, thank you all for coming out on this cold day in February, our next event is less than 2 weeks away at Edgewater Golf Club in Lancaster, SC.  We have a limited supply of carts, so please register/pay to confirm your spot in the field.
