Hilton Head-Savannah



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. 


As you know, one of the current benefits of your Golfweek Amateur Tour membership is a subscription to Golfweek Magazine.  Over the past few years, we have made continuing adjustments to the frequency of our printed magazine to better align with how advertisers value our print and online offerings and in the best interests of our long-term business.  Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our advertisers and our overall business, we have had to make even more reductions to the frequency of our printed magazine for the remainder of the year in order to keep our talented writers and support team in place.  We appreciate your understanding.


At the same time, we have invested heavily into www.golfweek.com to make it the best place for avid golfers and golf fans to get their golf news.  I encourage you to bookmark the site and to subscribe to our daily newsletters.  Here is the link: https://golfweek.com/newsletter/


Thank you again for being a Golfweek Amateur Tour Member. 


Best regards,

Patrick Leahy

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 Gifts Cards and also an etched crystal trophy for the 1st place winner in each flight. Prize Pay-Outs are based on the number of players in your flight.

We have optional cash games at each event. These include Skins and Super Skins Games and each tournament has Closest to the Pin Contest on the Par 3s.
Based on where you placed in the tournament, you will be awarded points. All participating players receive points no matter what place you finished in for the event. The Season Long Points Winner for each flight will be awarded a special trophy. The top 10 in each flight have the opportunity to compete in the National Finals at Hilton Head Island.

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
- D Flight: 19.0 and Higher Handicap

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to assist in any way that I can...
