Peoria, AZ, July 21, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The Medal Play Golf Tour is ready to begin its revival season in the Palm Springs/ Inland Empire, CA area and in the Phoenix, AZ area under the direction of veteran tour director Blane Freytag. The tour, which provides amateurs the experience of competitive stroke-play golf, will host a local schedule in each area that kicks off in November that will feature a winter series (November – March) and a summer series (April- August).
The tour is simplifying its format by eliminating flights and having all players tee off from the white member tees set between 6,000 - 6,400 yards depending on the course. All scoring is done at net utilizing 80% of a verifiable handicap. “We will continue to pay out the top 25% of the field, same as before,” said Freytag. “Only now the payouts for the top finishers will be substantially higher due to flight elimination. We also took a look at the costs of operating the tour and have reduced the event entry fees to record low levels. It truly is affordable.”
“Now amateurs can play a tour just like the pros, without the travel,” added Freytag, “Our events are held locally on weekends, perfect for the average golfer. Our goal is to provide fun, fair, competitive individual stroke play golf tournaments. Everyone has an equal shot in our tournaments.” The Medal Play Golf Tour is for amateurs of all ages and abilities.
There will also be an optional skins game at each event. Results and points standings are posted within 72 hours at (www.medalplaygolftour.com).
Come join them in the excitement and experience of tournament golf in a friendly and competitive atmosphere. The Medal Play Golf Tour gives the everyday player the chance to compete in events for trophies, skins and prize pool money on a local and regional stage.
