1. Cost to join for the entire season is $100 per player (Player can enter at any time but must enter before his 1sttournament to be awarded Challenge points). Player can pay online (link below) or at their 1sttournament. If paying at 1st tournament please email me to confirm.
2. All golfers will compete in their respective flights (Champ – D) during tournaments to earn points.
Each registered player will receive the same amount of Challenge points
as points they earned for the tournament they played in. (For example
member wins 1st place in his flight he receives 450 points, he will also
receive 450 Challenge points plus any bonus points earned). EXCEPTION – If in any tournament there are 5 players or less in any flight only 50% Challenge points are earned.

7. All Challenge points must come from playing in a Philly Metro Tour tournament, no points will be earned for playing an event on another tour (exception is Manufacturers, which is a joint-tour tournament).
An email update with point standing will be sent to all registered
players following each Tournament. We will also have a link on our
homepage to show up to date standings.
