If the 2019 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. In 2018 we sold out all of our events with the exception of 1. 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. There are plenty of opportunities to play away at some great tracks that are not too far away, for example....
- All 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.
- Your Tour Membership package will be given to you at your first local tournament you play in. Carolina Lakes Feb. 2nd kicks off the regular Charlotte Tour season!
- We utilize Live Scoring in all events. We added this last year and it was a huge success. 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- secondary draws will take place depending on sponsor gifts (ie. Golf Balls)
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

Thank You to all that particiapte each week in the 50/50 draw.
For 2018, The Charlotte Tour donated $8,745 to this great charity.
This year, I'm not setting a personal goal as all money collected/donated goes to a worthwhile cause.
After the fifth event we have raised $1720.
Salisbury Recap 2019
112 golfer’s teed it up on a sunny and cool Saturday afternoon in the Carolinas. While the grass on the fairways have not turned and started their growth, the greens at the Country Club of Salisbury were great as usual.
In the Championship Flight, David Schmidt wins for the first time in 2019 with a round of 1 over par 72. Pictured above is Dave with his mother who was present after the round to see Dave receive his awards. Second Place went to Joe Jaspers (73, +2) who tied with Jim Aughtry (73, +2) but it was Jaspers winning on the scorecard playoff. 4th went to Brian Swenson who shot 75 (+4) without carding a single birdie on the day.
In the A Flight, it was Chris Cloud (77, +6) claiming his first victory in 2019. Chris was 1 shot ahead of Mike Weber and Judd Dye both players shooting 78 (+7). 2nd went to Weber after beating Dye on the Scorecard playoff. 4th went to Jason Breedlove (79, +8) and 5th went to Michael Brandenburg (80, +9).
In the B Flight, we had our only playoff. 3 golfers tied at 85 (+14) and returned to the 10th hole to settle the score. It only took one hole and a score of par for Brad Greene to claim the victory over Larry Watkins (2nd) and Joe Lewis (3rd). 4th place went to Andy Ricci (86, +15) who was only 1 shot back and 5th place went to Tyler Phillips (87, +16)
In the C Flight, Andre Bank (87, +16) wins by 3 to claim his first victory of the season. 2nd goes to Russell McDonald (90, +19) who continues his strong play early in the year. 3rd and 4th had to be settled by the scorecard playoff and when the dust settled, it was Hector Moreno (91, +20) taking 3rd and Phil Waldier (91, +20) taking 4th.
In the D Flight, Toby Strickland (91, +20) wins by 4 and claims his first victory of the season. Matt Walker continues his strong play early in the year and takes second after winning a scorecard playoff with George Wood. Both players shooting 95 (+24).
Thanks again to everyone who comes out to compete in our events. We raised another $345 for our Charity of choice "Stand Up to Cancer" and we thank you all for participating in this great cause. As of today, we have raised a total of $1,720 and are blowing away our numbers from last year.
Our next 2 events are back to back MONDAY's. April the 8th we are at Cedarwood CC for a 1:00 p.m. Shotgun start and the following Monday (15th) we head over to Pine Island CC for a 10:00 a.m. shotgun start. Please register and pay early. As you have seen we have sold out all of our events with the exception of 1 and you certainly do not want to miss these two courses.
