ORLANDO GOLFWEEK AMATEUR TOUR OPENS 2015 SEASON MARCH 14 AT BLACK BEAR GOLF CLUB
The Golfweek Amateur Tour / Orlando will open its 2014 season on March 14 at Black Bear GC in Eustis. Thirteen tournaments are scheduled on some of the finest courses in central Florida. “Last year we played a terrific schedule; this year our lineup is every bit as good” said Tom Mirus, Tour director. “We will be taking the tour to some new courses this year. We are playing six courses we did not play in 2014. We are excited about the coming season. We will again qualify fifty players (10 from each of the five flights) for the Tour Championship in October. It is being held in Hilton Head, SC now and the players that made the trip last year loved it. I am sure competition for the invitations will be strong again this year. Plus, our players competed for nearly $50,000 in prizes last year.”
