I joined the AmTour in April, played my first tourney in June. I love it, it is competative and they do a really good job of keeping the sandbaggers out. You tell them about where you think you should be, in the way of a handicap. After 4 tourneys they give you a handicap based on your scores. They re-evaluate on the 2nd of every month. Keep in mind once a player is promoted up they cannot sandbag and get moved back down. So that keeps the players honest, then you only have to worry about them actually cheating during the tourney, example: Improving a lie in the rough when no one is looking and stuff like that.
