2015 GTA AM TOUR SCHEDULE
We have the BEST ever Tour schedule in our twelve year history..! Ninety percent of courses are not just private but high-end private. In addition to this fantastic lineup, originally posted on The Tour website, we have recently added two new events to the 2015 Tour. On Monday September 14, 2015 The Tour will visit the Heathlands Golf Course at Osprey Valley Resort for the Golf Away Tours Open. On Wednesday September 16, 2015 The Tour will, for the first time, visit The Briar's Golf Club in Georgina. Please visit The Tour's website now and register for these events.
This year we will be providing the following per event prizing for regular season events:
1st place - One $250 TaylorMade/Adams online Gift Card
2nd place - One $150 TaylorMade/Adams online Gift Card
3rd Place - one case of Mill Street beer and one dozen TaylorMade golf balls
Net Prizing - one case of Mill Street beer and six TaylorMade golf balls
Points and prizing will be increased by 50% at Majors and doubled at The Tour Championship.
Prizing based on the per Flight field size:
Up to 5 players = 1st Place
6 - 10 players = 1st and 2nd Place Prizes
11+ players = 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Prizes
SEASON-LONG MYRTLE BEACH ORDER OF MERIT PRIZING
We are VERY fortunate to have Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday returning as the Order of Merit Sponsor. As with the previous three years, the top three per Flight winners of the 2015 Myrtle Beach Order of Merit will receive a 2015 or 2016 golf trip to Myrtle Beach..! As will the top two in the Myrtle Beach Net Order of Merit...!
This year The Tour will be introducing a new Flight called the R Flight. Anyone can join this group of golfers who will be teeing off after the C Flight at each of the 2015 Tour events. The R Flight has been created to provide recreational golfers with an opportunity to play some of the best golf courses in Ontario for FUN...! Golfers in the R Flight will not be required to have a Handicap Factor.
Golfers joining the R Flight will pay 50% of then applicable Tour Registration fee (will receive a Sponsor Gift bag), will pay the same event fee as the competitive players, will be provided with a golf cart and will, for the most part, be teeing off in foursomes. R Flight golfers will not be eligible for prizing, points and/or skins but will be eligible for Sponsor discount and Host Club access offers.
If you know of anyone interested in signing up for The Tour, please have them visit the "Join Now" section of the website. Once again, this year, we will be providing Tour players, who refer a new player (who plays at least two 2015 events), with a $50 thank you for referring a friend. We will also be conducting draws for rounds of golf at Coppinwood for those of you who refer your friends and family members to The Tour. Please ensure your friends record you (on the Join Now page) as the person who referred them.
DISCOUNTED EVENT FEES AT CLUBLINK COURSES FOR CLUBLINK MEMBERS
Tour players who are also ClubLink members will receive, courtesy of ClubLink, event discounts at the National Pines (BMO World Elite MasterCard Major) and Heron Point (P.J. Dermody Classic) events. ClubLink will not be charging The Tour for you to play at those events. The Tour will charge you the full amount (as the billing is automated) but will then refund you the difference between the event fee and $80.
In order to take advantage of this discount, players must email the Head Professional and me at least 7 days prior to the event to let him/her know that you will be playing in the event.
SPONSOR GIFT BAG
The first 400 players to register for the 2015 GTA AM Tour will, once again, receive a Sponsor Gift Package. At this time, the Gift Package includes the following: PrivPlay Membership, Sundog sunglasses, Mill Street Brewery T-Shirt, Nature Valley bars, BMO World Elite golf tool kit, P.J. Dermody Insurance day timer, Tour branded items including T-Shirt, hat, water bottle and towel and hopefully, some more, yet to be announced swag!!
On behalf of the entire Tour Team we hope you have a FANTASTIC 2015 golf season and we VERY much look forward to hosting you ON TOUR in the near future!!
In good health,
