The National Golden Tee Tour returns to the Muse brothers' (GT) WORLD FAMOUS Callaway's in West Columbia, South Carolina for Power Events' 2023 Carolina Clash October 5th-8th!
This will be the first National Golden Tee Tour stop played on Golden Tee PGA TOUR games and a momentous occasion for the Golden Tee community. Power Events recently visited the IT warehouse to load their trailer with TWENTY-THREE BRAND NEW GT PGA TOUR cabs, and we couldn't be more excited to work with them in propelling the competitive scene to new heights.
PEGT's new games ready to load up!
Steve Sobel, Co-Owner of Power Events, shares our excitement in this endeavor. “We made it through the pandemic with great support from the players, our host locations, and the crew at Incredible Technologies. Our events are bigger and better than ever. We've continued to have more historical Golden Tee moments over the past two years, especially as the skill of the players shines through as they push each other at our events. Moving to PGA Tour machines will only make our tournaments greater than they already have been.”
He went on to say, "I feel our relationship with Incredible Technologies has never been in a better place. We want to thank them again for helping make this transition happen. We've already have seen players and locations follow our lead and move to the PGA Tour cabinet as they see the time is now to move on and up.”
Well said, Mr. Sobel. Well said. Now let's get to the tourney deets!
It all starts on Thursday with a $20 entry fee double elimination Money Shot (best 2 out of 3) contest, with Power Events kicking in an extra $5 to the prize pool for every player who enters!
In a first for PEGT, the 2023 Carolina Clash will host a Seniors Tourney for players 55+ years of age. With a $100 entry fee (including entry to the Main Event), this tourney will ru concurrently with the Main Event, and a player's qualifier will determine their placement in both brackets. $1,000 has been added to the prize pool, making this one heck of an opportunity for GT seniors to add to their near-retirement fund! We kid, we kid.
Friday's single elimination Handicap Tournament, begining at 7:30PM with a $25 entry, takes us closer to the big show, and gives players an opportunity to earn their entry fee in the Main Event on Saturday!
The player auction heads Saturday's events, starting at 11AM, with the $100 entry fee five-course Main Event qualifier to follow. Every Carolina Clash hopeful will show the world what they've got on GT 2023-2024's new courses, and find their place among the Gold, Purple, Pink, and Copper brackets.
Saturday will also host a $20 entry fee (per player) Blind Draw Doubles Tournament, slated to begin at 7:30PM.
Championship Sunday, beginning around 11AM, will pit qualifiers against one another in match play across the brackets until we crown our 2023 Carolina Clash Champion! The Purple Bracket winner in South Carolina will also earn a Golden Tee 2024 World Championship pass!
If you aren't able to make it, we'll be streaming the entire event LIVE from West Columbia on our Youtube, Twitch, and Facebook channels! Be sure to tune in and cheer on your favorite GT elites, pick up techniques and strategies from high level play, and watch the Carolina Clash unfold all weekend long!
As always, this will be an incredible weekend of GT competition and camaraderie, and we hope to see you all there!
