Saturday June 2nd,
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.
For those that are new to the tour, let me outline a few of the nuances to the Charlotte events.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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)
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

Thank You to all that particiapte each week in the 50/50 draw.
For 2017, The Charlotte Tour donated $4,780 to this great charity.
With the additional 50/50 draws this year, I'm setting a goal of $7,500.
For 2018: The Charlotte Tour has raised a total of :
$1,785 or 23.8% of the goal.
What a day....The forecast was actually spot on Friday when they predicted no rain for us. This was not expected a few days earlier. I'm putting this down to having a backup date in place in case it was too bad to play. As luck would have it, the sun shined down on us for the entire day and made it hot and sticky.
115 players battled it out including 7 players from neighboring tours.
In the Champ Flight, it all came down to the last hole. Jay Barnes and Chad Hagerman were tied at +2 with one hole to play, Dennis Reames was only 1 back with one to play. Jay made par to stay at +2 on the difficult 18th hole. Dennis lipped a birdie putt on #1 to stay at +3 and unfortunately Chad hit into a greenside bunker on his approach to 18 and was unable to get up and down to force a playoff. In the end, Barnes claimed the victory, Reames took home second, Chad took home 3rd. Newcomer Chason Trahon tied for 3rd at 76 but lost on the scorecard playoff to claim 4th place.
In the A Flight, 18 holes was not enough. Seth Holloman and Mark Ballew both posted +3 rounds of 75 from the Challenge Tee’s, They went back to Hole 18 where Mark claimed victory. Third place went to Tom Chambers with a 78, Newcomer Andy Eaton shot 82 and claimed 4th place. Corey Davis won a scorecard playoff beating out Scott Ilowaite and Marc Janse Van Rensburg, all players shot 83.
In the B Flight, Nolan Elenz (81) took home a 1 shot victory over Will Ray (82), who continues to finish in the top 3 in each of his events. Flip Flippo was 3rd at 83. Robert Gruendel and Terry Upwright finished in a Tie for 4th but it was Robert who took home 4th which left 5th place for Terry.
In the C Flight, it was Matthew Gowan (88) who took home a one shot victory over Michael Guarino (89) and Bradley Leak (89). Michael took home 2nd place based on the scorecard playoff. Glen Nutting (91) took home 4th place honors.
In the D Flight, Richard Zonjic (98) made a successful return for 2018 with a 1 shot victory over Austin Marshall (99) from the Memphis/North Mississippi tour. Dannie Gay (100) continues his good play early in the year and takes home 3rd place.
