So, you’re considering registering for the City Tour this summer? First of all, you've made a great choice and we can't wait for you to see what we have in store at our summer golf tournaments. Second, you might have some questions about what to expect. Here are a few things you need to know:
1) Tournament dates
All cities will be competing on the same weekends this summer, giving everyone a chance to compare their scores and start the journey to qualifying for the Championship.
2) Weekends only
Saturdays and Sundays are the only days that matter for the City Tour, as all of our events are 18-hole tournaments on either Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Since tournaments are only 1-day, 18-holes, there's no need for a hotel or an extended trip. Clear your afternoon schedule, and get ready to tee off.
3) Team-based golf
Yes, golf can be a team game. Teams compete in pairs, with two or three pairs per team (maximum 6 players). Every pair plays either best ball or scramble (your choice). The best 2 pair scores count for the team score. No handicap is needed. Everyone has the chance to contribute! And best of all, you can play with your friends, colleagues, or meet new golf buddies along the way.
4) No membership fees
One of the few golf tours that doesn't charge membership fees, we want you to be able to play golf affordably.
5) Fun and social
Everyone loves competition, but from the time you check in, to being on the course, and announcing a winner there will be music, drinking, food and anything else fun within the decorum of the game.
6) It’s all about logistics
As a player on the City Tour we take care of you. From the moment you check in at the course we make everything easy. When you arrive at the course there will be City Tour banners and signage directing you to the registration table where you’ll find your friendly City Leader checking people in and handing out Srixon golf balls, bag tags, tees, snacks, ball markers, and more.
7) Don’t forget the prizes!
The winners of each tournament will receive prizes, have their picture taken, and of course are one step closer to the National Championship. We encourage all participants to stay at the course after the round and hang out at the 19th Hole.
