Wynne, AR - Very pleasant day for golf on the gorgeous Ridges @ Village Creek.  


A' Flight - One of our guests from Arkansas tour, Bruce Upton, came over and kicked our guys butts with a 78! Nice Bruce.  Second place went to Tommy Warren, and third to Tim Ferrell respectively.

B' Flight - Another Arkansas guest, LR Gardner, did a replay of A flight in the B flight.  Gardner shoots 84 for the win, with Mike Bertoldo taking 2nd and Tim Western 3rd.

C' Flight - Richard Ward got back on the winning track with an 85. Bart Watkins finishes 2nd (again), and tour vet Danny McDougal grabbed 3rd.

D' Flight - Somehow, one of our new members has won all three majors this season. Darrell, I think you need to go to C' flight for that reason alone!  Darrell wins his 3rd major of the season at the difficult Ridges golf course. Congrats Darrell!  Mike Jared from Arkansas tour placed 2nd and Vince Vaghela takes third.


Next on the schedule is Glen Eagle golf course in Millington, TN on August 27th. Register and pay by Wednesday August 24th please.

 How Our Tournaments Work   

When you sign up for the tour, we will place you in a flight based on your current USGA Index or by making a determination based on your average scores. During the tournaments, you will compete against other players from your flight in a true stroke play event. You will compete for pre-paid Visa Gifts Cards and a trophy for the 1st place winner in each flight. Prize Pay-Outs are based on the number of players in your flight. $20 per player for a Standard event and $40 per players for a 2 Day Major event make up a portion of the prize pool.
