CT Amateurs Golf Tour holds two to three tournaments a week. Typically we play private courses during the week and public courses on the weekend.
No, play in all or one. You decide what works best for your schedule, but we have a feeling you're going to want to play them all!
We take great pride in keeping our pace of play at a reasonable rate. Rounds may take a little longer than your average round with friends as this is tournament play and should be treated as such. Our CT chapter averages five hours on the weekend and four hours during our weekday tournaments. We practice ready golf. There are no gimmies, you must putt everything out. The "B" division always has the option to pick up their ball when they reach a net double bogey. If an “A” player picks up their ball without putting out, they are disqualified from the low gross portion of that tournament, however they can still compete on the net stableford portion of the tournament.
We score using the Stableford point system. You receive points per hole all off of your net score. In essence you're playing the golf course not other members. We also have a stroke play only division. We also offer stroke play for our "A" divi
You will switch scorecards with another member of your foursome at the first hole ( if you are sharing a cart it can not be your cart buddy). You will track that persons score and on the bottom of the scorecard you will track your own score. After the round is complete you are required to come to the club house and sign and attest your score card and place it in the card box at the registration table. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GO OUT TO THE PARKING LOT WITH YOUR SCORE CARD.
The net portion of each tournament consists of and "A" and "B" division. The "A" division consists of golfers with a Handicap of 11.9 or below. The "B" division consists of golfers with a handicap of 12 or above.
Yes. You can establish a USGA Handicap Index through CT Am Tour or we can use an existing handicap index you have established through your home course.
The members with the highest point totals at the end of the tournament gets paid in CT Am Tour credits. Typically the top six to eight players in each division win something. Your credits can be applied to any upcoming tournaments to reduce your cost to play. If you win $100 in credits and the next tournament is $100 then you play for free! Credits do not carry over to the next season, you can however apply them to your membership renewal. CT Am Tour Credits have no cash value and can not be transferred.
We offer 6 side bets which are paid out in cash at the next tournament. These are not required and offered to enhance the competition of the tournament. You can select which if any side bets you want to participate in each tournament. Gross skins - $10 Low gross - $10 Closest to the pin - $10 (2 holes) Net Skins - $5 Kicker- $5 No zero pool - $5
I monitor the weather very closely. If the weather looks like it's going to be an all day rain event we typically reschedule to a different date.
You must make sure to wear proper golf attire. This consists of golf pants or shorts, a tucked in golf shirt and appropriate golf shoes. If you come wearing non appropriate attire you will be disqualified from that days tournament.
