The Senior Golf Challenge Launches in November Peoria, AZ, August 12, 2015 –(PR.com)– The Senior Golf Challenge is ready to begin its inaugural season in the desert communities of Palm Springs, CA and Phoenix, AZ under the direction of veteran tour director Blane Freytag. The series, which provides senior golf enthusiasts the experience of competitive stroke-play golf, will host a series of one day events geared to weekend senior golfers who wish to test their skills in a competitive environment.
The first events are scheduled for Sunday November 1st at Westin Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, CA and Sunday November 22nd at Ocotillo Golf Resort in Chandler, AZ. “Course conditions will be very good at both venues as they overseed early and we will be off the path,” stated tour director Blane Freytag. “Our events are exclusively for players over the age of 50 or will turn 50 at some point during the 2016 season.” The tour is offering free membership for the 2016 season and the opportunity to become a charter member by participating in at least 6 events during the season. Visit their website at www.seniorgc.com for complete details of the program. Events are also planned at Troon North Pinnacle, Moon Valley, McCormick Ranch, PGA West, Indian Wells and the Classic Club just to name a few.
The season will run from November thru early June avoiding the hot summer months. “The Tour Championship will be in early April for both tours,” commented Freytag. “During which course conditions and weather is ideal, perfect for our winter visitors.”
The tournament format is 4 flights at gross stroke play and 1 flight at net stroke play. “Our goal is to provide fun, fair, competitive individual stroke play golf tournaments at an affordable entry fee with decent payouts,” added Freytag. “With 5 flights everyone has an equal shot in our tournaments.”
At each event, the players are competing for cash awards and optional side games that also pay cash. Gift cards are also available if protecting your amateur status is important to you. Results are posted within 48 hours at www.seniorgc.com.
