Hurricane Golf TournamentHurricane Golf Tour launches Amateur Tour

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Hurricane Golf Tour is proud to announce the launching of the Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour (amateur.hurricanetour.com) for its inaugural season starting in 2014.
The Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour will allow golfers of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to compete at exquisite courses in 25 events across 13 different states. Players will be divided into five flights based on their age, and handicap respectively. There will be five open flights for players 18-49, as well as five senior flights for those 50 and older. These flights, determined by handicap, allow every type of golfer a chance to play against players of similar skill levels at each tournament.
Each tournament will consist of a two-day, 36 hole stroke-play format and a “19th Hole” dinner following the completion of the first round. The “19th Hole” dinner is included with entry, and is a buffet style dinner that allows players to meet and interact with one another. This dinner gives the players a PGA “Major Championship” style feel to the tournament and is offered only by the HAGT. There will also be raffles, giveaways, and awards for Best Dressed, Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, as well as the Dixon Golf Amateur Sponsorship.
The low rate of $25 is all it takes to become a member on the Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour and includes a wide array of benefits. Benefits of becoming a member include: access to HAGT events, the opportunity to qualify for the National Tour Championship, a free GHIN Handicap, personalized Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour Bag Tag, special pricing on the Hurricane Tour Shop, exclusive deals from HAGT sponsors, and a player profile on the HAGT website which tracks players’ stats and tournament performances.
Every event on the 2014 schedule will have a $2,000 prize purse.  The payouts will be given to the top three finishers from each flight, and will be paid out no matter the field size. If the flight has more than 20 players in it, the top five from each flight will be awarded in the payout. Payouts on the Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour will be in the form of gift cards to the Hurricane Tour Shop (hurricanetourshop.com).  The tour shop has everything a golfer’s heart could ever desire. Apparel, clubs, equipment, golf balls, accessories and much more are featured in top brand names like Nike, TaylorMade, Adidas, Puma and Cleveland.
The Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour also allows members the opportunity to earn credit towards their next tournament with the Player Referral Program. A member has two ways of earning credit. The first is to enter five email addresses of potentially interested participants and be rewarded with a $10 credit.  The second is every referral you give that signs up for a 2014 membership rewards you with a $10 credit. There is no limit on how many people you can refer.
The Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour will begin its inaugural season on May 17th-18th with the Hurricane Amateur Kickoff at Grande Pines at Grande Pines Golf Club in Orlando, Florida. Members of the HAGT will also get the chance to play on luxurious and top rated courses such as the Atlantic City Country Club which is ranked the #34 resort course in America by Golf Week, Oxmoor Valley Golf Club in Birmingham which is part of the Robert Trent Jones Trail that offers golfers 54 majestic holes of challenging yet exciting golf, the University Club of Kentucky in beautiful and historic Lexington and Hermitage Golf Course in Tennessee which is the #1 rated public course in the state of Tennessee by Golf Digest and PGA.com. These are just a few of the prestigious courses that HAGT members get a chance to compete on during the 2014 season.
All of this leads up to the National Tour Championship in Orlando, Florida on December 13th and 14th. The National Tour Championship is an invitation only event that will be the conclusion of the 2014 HAGT season.
