Two times a year we raffle of free foursomes for the courses we play on the CLT tour.  The first drawing will take place prior to our second round at Irish Creek on Sunday the 24th of June.  We will announce the winners and present them with their certificates before they head out to their respective hole.  The cost of these raffle tickets are $20 a piece and a link has been place above so you can purchase online.  You will also be able to purchase at the course on Saturday and prior to our round on Sunday.  Sales will conclude at 12:30 and we will immediately do the drawings.  To date, we have already raised over $2000 based on our 50/50 draws at our events.  I set a goal of $7500 this year and I'm positive we will surpass that in 2018.  Thanks as always for your support as we all know someone who has been affected by this horrible disease.

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

    River Run CC 2018

    River Run CC   6/11/2018

    92 Golfers from the Charlotte, Central Carolina and Upstate tours battled the hot and humid conditions in Davidson on the Monday afternoon.  The greens were fast and the rough was long which made for a challenging day for all the players.

    In the Championship Flight, returning Member Jay Jay Howard took home the 1st place Trophy and Gift Card after posting an excellent round of 74.  John Heffernan (76) beat out Jay Barnes (76) for second based on the scorecard playoff method.  Rounding out the Top 4 was Matt Gray.

    In the A Flight, we needed extra holes to decide the winner today.  Don Bridges (79) and Ivan Jones (79) from the Central Carolina tour went back to 18 to start the playoff.  Don made a par on the first extra hole while Ivan ran into some problems with the lake guarding the right side of the hole and ended up with double bogie.  Paul Aschmann (80) took home third. Rounding out the top 4 was Phil VanGeersdaelen (81).

    In the B Flight it was Dean Barron (83) who won for the first time ever in the B Flight.  It looked like Dean was going to walk away with the win, but he started leaking a bit of oil over his last few holes to stay ahead by one.  Xin Zhang (84) continues his strong play this year and take homes 2nd.  Mike Edwards (85) takes home 3rd and rounding out the top 4 was James Burrell (86).

    In the C Flight, Christian Casper (87) returns to the winner’s circle by taking a 2 shot victory over three golfers who all shot 89.  Eric Seibert (89) takes second in the scorecard playoff and Colton Hollis takes 3rd and last paying position.  Scott Cain (89), just missed out this week after winning the last event.

    In the D Flight, it was Vince Thompson (91) from the Central Carolina tour who takes home first place with a 2 shot victory over Raymond Hoerr (93).

    In less than 2 weeks, the second Charlotte Major will be upon us.  We are taking the first 112 paid players to play at the Club @ Irish Creek.  Please make sure the PAID status on the Who's playing list is correct.  If you see something wrong, please let me know asap so I can research.

    Thanks as always for the support and see everyone in a few weeks.
