Women's Flight
Women's Flight will remain the same with a Net competition among all female competitors. Competitors in this Flight will play from the forward set of tees.

You HAVE to check out the new carpooling feature...! We are VERY excited to share this with you. If you are looking to carpool, we have developed a tool that should help. Please log in, register for at least one event and then, under Quick Links, hit the Carpooling link. You will then be asked to select driver or a passenger. You will then be taken to a page that shows (both via a list and map) all of the drivers, passengers and the location of the Tournament golf course. You can then reach out to someone to connect for a ride.

We hope you enjoy this new feature and are able to put it to good use..! 

BMO World Elite MasterCard
We would like to thank BMO World Elite MasterCard for their partnership with The Tour over the past three years. For those of you who so steadfastly supported The Tour, by procuring a BMO MasterCard, we would like to thank you for your loyalty. 

Andrew Mitchell and I are currently working on procuring another credit card company. Thanks to BMO for their support of, and contribution to, the wider Tour community.
