We need a 4 day tournament or something from this website. It is the only way to clear up how everyone actually plays. Let's all meet up play a couple rounds of scramble and an individiual event. then the winner can say whatever they want about their swing.

People have proposed this sort of thing several times before, and they always die before they happen. Use the search function to find out why.

Pick a course, get it pre-paid and people will show up. Hell if the goofy golf channel am tour gets people to travel I don't see why people wouldnt for this. We all have friends who play too and could bring them.

it's a solid idea, however just this spring we tried to get people from the Chicago area together for a golf outing.  We had 3 pages of people that said they were interested.  I took the initiative and organized a round for the beginning of the season, one other player actually made it out.  A few weeks later, somebody else tried, nobody was available.  After that, nobody even bothered posting to the thread.

If we can't get a group of people that live in the same city together for a single round on a saturday a 2-3 day 4 round event isn't likely to happen.

Hey!  The Am tour is fun!  (I don't really travel for it, as I've played 6 tournaments pretty much all in my back yard this year)

And there have been a few successful regional get-togethers of people on this site.

Those of us in Southern California are going to be having our 4th this coming October, and a bunch of guys in the Ohio/Pennsylvania area put one together just a couple of weeks ago.

But a National one?  Yeah, that would be tough.  (Unless you want to hold it in Socal!) ;)

I am not saying it isn't fun. I just can't believe people pay SOO much for a round of golf. A one day tournament you have to pay membership then like $125.00 and take a day off work.. Play a weekend Amateur event that is two days it is 150 or less, 2 rounds, and on the weekend. I just think they rip people off is my only bout against it.

Okay. Book your tickets.

Next August 7-10 at Whispering Woods Golf Club in Erie, PA.

One "get to know everyone" scramble on the 7th, and individual competition with 85% handicaps on the days that follow.

Entry fee is $10 + greens fees/carts. The $10 will go directly to the prize pool.

The winner, by my estimations, will walk off with a cool $30 or so (50% of the total purse).

I feel that will be a prime time for me to come up and work with you guys and then go out for some golf!  I missed the one a few weeks ago and I don't plan on missing the next one!!

Yeah I think Houston TX would be a good central location for this event.
