Amateurs only B-Tier PDGA sanctioned tournament.
I will be adding $100 to the purse for each of the following divisions!: Advanced, Intermediate, Recreational, & Novice. In addition, any other division that gets 6 or more players will get $25 added to it's purse as well. This is a new format I'm trying. I had a great group of amateurs who attended the fund raiser Chain Reaction for Rio that helped us raise $831 for the American Brain Tumor Association. This is my reward to all the Amateur players who showed up and gave so generously. Come out, have a great time, and get a great payout if you cash!
Please note the change to the division schedule as shown below!
Two 27 hole rounds at Westpark, in Joliet, IL. (3 temp holes)
Westpark is one of the most popular courses in the Joliet area. Hole 2 is an easy shot down from the top of the ridge to the basket below, while hole 11, The Green Mile, is a long shot with a fairway that narrows significantly from the halfway point to the pin. The course plays thru mature oaks. Tee pads are natural.
The current plan is to add the same three holes between 8 and 10 that we added last year.
Pre-registration is highly encouraged. By pre-registering, you help us run a smoother tournament.
Day of Registration (if spots are available) and Check-In will be between 8am-9am both days. Please check in when you get there.
Players meeting will be held at 9:15am. Tee off at approx. 9:30am. Tournament headquarters will be in the pavillion above hole 8. The pavillion is off Wheeler Ave. The map below is fully functional.
Tentative division schedule:
Short tees first round, and long tees second round
All Am Masters divisions
All Women's divisions
Changing the tees to Shorts first round and Longs second round, weather permitting. Have two new long tees to add that will be fun.
If you are a current PDGA member, you get $10 off the registration fee. The registration fee includes $2 to cover the cost of accepting credit cards. The same fee is charged if registering in-person using a credit card. Of course, in-person cash registrations do not pay the $2 fee.
