The swflamtour will have mostly one day events on weekends, with occasional two day events throughout the year. There will be a County Cup at the end of the year that will have top point leaders play in a Ryder Cup style event that will crown the County Champion. What county will have the bragging rights for a year?
There will be different formats played throughout the year, individual stroke play, point’s quota, and some team competitions. Be sure to check the website often for updates on future events that will be listed as the year goes on.
Membership to join the tour is $59.00 per year. You can play in certain events as a non-member for an additional fee of $20.00 plus the entry fee for certain events.
The first tournament to kick off the season will be an 18 hole stroke play event at Majestic Golf Club in Lehigh Acres, FL, on Sunday October 14, 2018, this event will cost $65.00 for all players. You will receive a free membership for the 2019 season of the swflamtour with the entry for this event, that’s right, a $59.00 value for helping us kick off the tour.
Some people may say, why Majestic Golf Club? Well some of you may know me, my name is Jim Osburn, and I’ve been around SW Florida for over 35 years and been in the golf business for that time. I’m the Golf Course Superintendent at Majestic Golf Club, My wife Julie and I moved here about 4 years ago, we live on the course. The golf course has made some major improvements over the past 4 years that I think everyone will be pleased to see. We put in new Imperial Nano (Ultra Dwarf) greens last year that have been very impressive to date. We look forward to showing the course to all that have played in the past and to the newcomers that will be joining us for this event.
We are looking for courses to host events for the 2019 season, one and two day events. If your club is interested in hosting an event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be handing out gift certificates at the host clubs for most events that have adequate merchandise available for redemption, occasionally we will offer certificates to golf stores in SW Florida as needed.
All swflamtour events will donate a portion of proceeds from each event to Jr. Golf in SW Florida which could be a school, individual or organization. It will vary for each event.
