The tournament format will be a four-man scramble (Callaway scoring system). Four players will play together as a team; if you register as a single player, you will be assigned to a team. Each player on the team will tee off from the tee box. The team members will select the best tee shot of the four, and all golfers will then play their second shot from that location. Play will continue in this manner until the hole is completed. After the hole is completed, the team score is recorded and play continues under the same guidelines on the remaining holes.
Closest to the Pins, Vendor Closest to the Pins, Longest Drive and Straightest Drive contests will take place throughout tournament play.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams, and to the last place team.
Raffle tickets and mulligans will be available for purchase on the day of the tournament.
On Tuesday, March 12, 2013, the Carolinas Chapter will host its Spring Education Program at Smith Turf & Irrigation (STI), also in Charlotte.
Carolinas Chapter members are encouraged to make a two-day event of it and come catch up on the latest “Club Trends” in golf maintenance, management, and membership marketing. Featured speakers include department heads from STI and Steve Graves from Creative Golf Marketing. (Visit www.carolinascmaa.org for more information.)

The Carolinas Club Foundation (CCF) is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization committed to supporting and contributing to the development, growth and image of the club management industry.
The CCF’s mission is to raise funds to financially support the professional development of Carolinas Chapter club managers and student chapter members through education, training and research initiatives.
Though only in its eighth year of existence, the CCF has already awarded grants and scholarships in excess of $125,000. While a major source of the funding for the CCF has come as individual donations from club managers who recognize the importance of education, other funding sources have been auctions, tournaments and vendor shows.
This Fundraising Vendor Golf Tournament is not only a way for the CCF to continue in its fundraising efforts, but it is a way to acknowledge and thank its contributing vendors and supporters.
