If you are not feeling well, DO NOT COME

If you are uncomfortable, DO NOT COME


If the 2020 season is anything like last year, there are a few things that will make things easier.      

Registration is a two part process, Register is part 1 and Paying for the event is part 2.  Only when both of these are completed is your spot guaranteed in the field.  Over the last 2 seassons we have sold out all of our events with the exception of aq few.  So, If you are planning to play in an event, please register and pay as early as possible to avoid being left out.

Playing AWAY events.  With your AGT membership you are allowed to play in any event on any tour where space is available.  However, points can only be accumulated towards the points race IF you let me know in advance of playing in the away event.  By doing this, it stops people for requesting points after the event when they finish high in the standings and not requesting the points when they don't.  The Make Up points can only be requested for events that you plan on missing on the Local Tour Schedule.  

      For those that are new to the tour, let me outline a few of the nuances to the Charlotte events.   

      1. 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.
      2. Your Tour Membership package will be given to you at your first local tournament you play in.  Carolina Lakes Feb. 1st kicks off the regular Charlotte Tour season!
      3. 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.
      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 $10 per ticket
        • 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.
          • second draw for Course Sponsored Rounds (twosome/foursome)
          • thir draw for 1 dozen AGT Logo 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

        2020 - Cowans Ford

        115 Golfers attended the GolfWeek Am Tour event at Cowans Ford Golf Club in Stanley, NC on Saturday March 14th.

        There was some very close competition in all the flights on Saturday which made for some exciting and nerve-wracking finishes.

        In the Championship Flight, we had some great scores on the day.  Cowans Ford member, Scott Patnode, fresh off his Senior Tour victory shot a blistering 4 under par round of 68 to win for the first time this season on the Golfweek Am Tour.  Scott was one clear of Jay Barnes (-3,69) who unfortunately made a bogie on his final hole, the 18th. Third place goes to Scott Roberts (-1,71) and rounding out the top four was Mike Gentry (+1,73) beating Matt Kilgo on the scorecard playoff.

        In the A Flight, Ryan Brandenburg wins for the first time in 2020 with a round of (+3, 75) to take home the crystal.  Dan Stroud (+5, 77) claims second place honors.  Phil VanGeersdaelen (+7,79) wins a scorecard playoff over Judd Dye (+7, 79) to take third and fourth respectively.  Rounding out the top 5 was Andy Murrow (+8, 80) winning a scorecard playoff over Allen Hagen).

        In the B Flight, David Aussicker kept it between the white lines today with a score of (+8, 80) to take a 3 shot victory and claim his first win in 2020.  Chris Beeman, a late entry on Saturday morning, claims second with a score of (+11, 83).  Chip Goode claims third with a score of (+12, 84).  Dale Ambrose (+13, 85) and Russell McDonald (+13, 85) tied for fourth, but it was Ambrose winning the scorecard playoff to take fourth.  McDonald had to settle for 5th.

        In the C Flight, Eric Herman takes home first place honors with a score of (+14, 86) and a 2-shot victory.  Casey McCreary making his tour debut in 2020, claims second place with a score of (+16, 88).  Glen Nutting takes 3rd with a score of (+19, 91) winning a scorecard playoff with Tony Pharr (+19, 91) who takes home fourth place honors.

        In the D Flight, Greg Scott, wins by 4 shots with a score of (+21, 93) over David Rosier who takes second with a score of (+25, 97).

        Congratulations to Chengyu Sun, who made his first-ever HOLE-IN-ONE on the par 3, 7th hole today with a 6-iron.  The only bad thing about this accomplishment was that Chengyu was not in either skins pots (Flight or Super).

        Our next event takes us to River Run on the Monday March 30th.  

        If you are looking for events to play in the coming weekends, please look at the neighboring tours as we do have many events in the area.  The Upstate tour is hosting two events in NC on the next 2 Saturdays.  The 21st at Riverbend in Shelby, NC and then the following weekend (28th) at Apple Valley at the Rumbling Bald Resort at Lake Lure, NC.

        We will continue to monitor the status of the COVID-19 issues daily and will keep our players informed of any changes to the tour schedules.

        Thanks to all that came out today.
