TheGrint Tour is a PGA-style amateur golf tour in 18 cities across North America. Players of all skill levels can compete in local tournaments against other amateur golfers for cash prizes, skins and the season-long points race trophy. The North Carolina Tour is run by Michael Hawkins and hosts over a dozen events within an hour or two of Charlotte. I’ve been playing on the tour since 2021.
I’ve been working with Homestretch Golf since 2020, promoting their paperless pre-round pari-mutuels and wagering software for clubs and tournaments. If you are a club pro or a tournament organizer, check out their solution for running Win-Place-Show type competitions where participants can easily make wagers and see LIVE odds on their phone.
The Below Average Golf Association brings players that like competitive matches together with golf brands and sponsors who want to get their names and products more exposure. I connected with this group a few years ago and love the concept. Andy Keene has grown it since then and now runs regular events a couple of times a month. Buca Belts has sponsored me on this tour and I now own almost 20 of their belts!
A great place to practice all parts of your game. They have dozens of artificial tee mats as well as a traditional grass tee area. The soft mats feel like solid turf, don’t mark up your clubs and they accommodate regular golf tees. There’s also a great chipping green with a sand bunker. Buckets start at $6 for 45 balls and they offer memberships, lessons and group outings. Inside the well-stocked pro shop, you can also get a few cold ones to drink while you practice. And if you sign up on their web site, you can get an email discount for a free small bucket right off the bat.
