Northeast Ohio golfers looking for another competitive event option should check out the tournaments of the Golf Galaxy Tour.
The events are a series of 2-player scrambles and better balls contested over the better public courses of greater Cleveland and Akron.
All of the prize payouts are made in Golf Galaxy gift certificates, but with an interesting twist: teams that win any event using the new Callaway iTour golf ball earn an additional $500 for the team in gift certificates as a bonus. So the return to the winning team is worthwhile if you play the bonus ball (but, candidly, not so much if you don’t, or don’t win).
Entry fees per player are listed below, which includes the green fees and carts. Players who choose to become “members” get the discounted VIP entry fee listed in parenthesis, but membership is not required. There are other optional games and prize levels that are too detailed to explain here; check the Golf Galaxy Tour website for details.
