About The Big Money Tour
The Big Money Tour is designed to encourage golfers to try new courses and experience the range of golf options over a three-county region. Showcasing local favorite courses is another way the Big Summer Golf Card helps to support local clubs and increase daily rounds when demand is typically lower due to climatic conditions, a.k.a. rain and storms. These, and reduced summer population numbers can have a significant impact on golf play. Each year the Big Money Tour generates over 30,000 rounds of golf at favorite area courses.
Eighteen courses currently participate in the Tour and to qualify for the monthly drawing golfers must be a Big Summer Golf Card holder and register at least four rounds in a given month at one or more of the participating courses. Players receive an additional entry into the drawing for each additional four rounds of golf played in a given month. Drawings are held on the 15th of every month for the preceding month and prizes are awarded to the winners at a special presentation at one of the exclusive participating courses.
Every month between May and October, five golfers share in $2,500 of cash prizes, a Grand Prize of $1,000 plus two-$500 and two-$250 cash prizes. In addition, five golfers receive prizes ranging from golf certificates for complimentary rounds of golf at participating courses or golf equipment.
