Walt Disney World® Golf Welcomes The Golf Channel Amateur Tour
Walt Disney World® Golf, operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, is pleased to welcome the Golf Channel’s Amateur Tour to Disney’s Magnolia and Disney’s Palm golf courses.
The 5th Annual Disney Masters will take place from October 21–22, 2017 and will consist of two age groups for both men and women. One age group for those under 50 and one for those 50 and over. Each age group will consist of six U.S.G.A. handicap based flights.
The Golf Channel Amateur Tour is the largest amateur golf tour in North America, conforming to the U.S.G.A. rules of Amateur Status, while providing an authentic Tour-style tournament experience to male and female players of all ages and abilities.
The event format allows golfers to compete with others at their skill level, based upon their U.S.G.A. handicaps. The events are generally individual stroke play formats, played at scratch within each handicap based flight. Players are then re-flighted monthly, based upon their handicaps within the Golf Channel Amateur Tour events played.
The top 3 finishers in each flight at the Disney Masters, including ties, will earn an exemption into the 2018 Golf Channel Amateur Tour National Championship.
We look forward to welcoming the Golf Channel staff, players, family and friends to the “Happiest Place on TURF!”
