How Our Tournaments Work   

When you sign up for the tour, we will place you into 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 stoke play event. You will compete for pre-paid Visa or MasterCard Gifts Cards and also an etched crystal trophy for the 1st place winner in each flight. Prize Pay-Outs are based on the amount of players in your flight. We will take $20 per player for a Standard event and $40 per players for a 2 Day Major event and add it to the prize pool. For every 4 players in the flight, we will add another place to pay out. Please click on the link below to view the complete prize pay-out matrixes for both Standard and 2 Day Major events.

We also have optional cash games at each event. These include Skins Games based on Flight, Super Skins which includes all flights together and Closest to the Pin.

Then, based on what place you took in that tournament, you will be awarded season points no matter what place you finished for the event. For each half of the season and for each flight, the highest points winner for each half season will have half of their entry fee to the National Championship in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina paid for. The Season Long Points Winner for each flight will be awarded a special trophy and we will also pay for their next year's Membership to the Tour!

Listed below are the flight assignments...

- Championship Flight: 0 to 3.9 Handicap
- A Flight: 4.0 to 8.9 Handicap
- B Flight: 9.0 to 13.9 Handicap
- C Flight: 14.0 to 18.9 Handicap
