Just read a post about so cal amateur tours, just wondering if anything like that exists in the Tampa bay area, or Orlando...??

The golf channel tour thing is out of hand. 175 to play and its like a 6 hour round.

Thanks

I play in a weekly tourny its a 2 a side format and its based on points. You should check it out at any of the courses near you because the payout isnt bad, there is also skins, closest to the pin, and a honey hole which usualy gets up to about 400 bucks.

That was my thinking about the golf channel tour, plus it's like 200 just to join. Although I realize for many, that's not a lot of money.

yes just call up the head pro at any course in your area and ask them if they have skins and pins or 2 a side or any time of weekly payout roundup. The format for 2 a side is based on points, you pay 20 bucks to get in and 5 more for skins on the side. They asign you a certain amout of points based on your handicap and that is your "par" per say. Im an 8 handicap and they assign me 30 points to gather up in my round, 1 bogey 2 par 3 birdie and idk what eagle is, but once you finish up your round and say you get 6 points over your assigned points then you could when about $150 or even more it just depends on if anyone scores better than 6 points over, you get me? I like this better than amauter tours because its cheaper and your chance of winning money is far greater.

I live in the lakeland area and there are a bunch of courses around here that do it on a weekly basis. Honestly Im just realizing that I could make more money from side bets and weekly roundups like these than mini tours lol . If your interested you could come out on saturdays over here and get started the course I play at is huntington hills golf club.
