Charlotte, NC



To all Golfweek Amateur Tour Members,


On behalf of the entire Golfweek organization, I want to thank you for your membership of the Golfweek Amateur Tour.  We are incredibly proud of our relationship with what we feel is the best option for organized amateur competition for folks like you and me. 


I am writing to inform you of some changes to our magazine frequency and format for 2021. Our plan is to publish four issues in 2021 including our annual Golfweek’s Best in April and Ultimate Guide in December. In addition to these two issues, we will publish a new issue called Get Equipped in February that will highlight everything new in the game for 2021 including equipment, gear, places to visit and more. The second new issue is titled Golf Life in July and will feature in-depth stories and interviews with the movers, shakers and personalities that drive the business and sport of golf. We are excited about the new schedule and plan to bring the same style of expert, in-depth journalism that you expect from Golfweek..


I hope that you also enjoying as well as our weekly digital newsletter products including: Monday Rewind, Get Equipped, Get Primed, Golf Life and Get Better. You can sign up for these here.


Thank you again for being a Golfweek Amateur Tour Member.

  • Skins and CTP's will be paid at the course or by Venmo within 24 hours.  If you do not have the app set up, I can send you a link to install the app.
  • In order to speed up play, groups will be warned and penalized if they fall further than 1 hole behind. To help speed up play, please play ready golf and limit your ball searches to 3 minutes (Per USGA Rules).
  • Please make special requests such as playing partners BEFORE tee times are posted by sending an email to
  • For those that are new to the tour, let me outline a few of the nuances to the Charlotte events.   
Most 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.
  1. Your Tour Membership package will be emailed to you before your first local tournament you play in you will be able to choose from items in the online store ($50 credit).  
  2. We utilize Live Scoring in all events. 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.
  3. Side Cash Games.  These are all optional.
    • Flight Skins Games 
      • Each flight will have a seperate pot.
      • If there are less than 10 players playing at an event in the division, 2 divisions may be combined. 
    • Super Skins Game 
      • All Flights combined ($10 entry)
    • 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. If there are more than 4 par 3's, only 4 will be used for CTP.
    Playing - Other Tour Events.  

    The ability to play on any AGT tour event across the country is a great benefit.  If you play an outside event, points will automatically be added to your total for up to 4 events. Please refer to pages 17-18 of the Tour Manual for complete details on playing outside events. A single day event can only be replaced with another single day event and a 2 day major can only replaced with a local 2 day major (Regional events are not acceptable as replacements for local 2 day events). Additionally, points will be rewarded for up to 3 Regional events.

    Thank you to our 2023 Tour Sponsors:
