The Carolina Country Club Tournament Results


The Upstate SC Chapter of the Amateur Players Tour held its thirteenth tournament of the season at the Home of the Korn Ferry Tour’s BMW Championship (Carolina Country Club). The golf course was immaculate. The fairways were plush, greens fast and was a true test of one’s skill and patience. Thanks to all the wonderful staff for hosting this great tournament.  

Before the tournament was to start, The Upstate and Charlotte Chapters of the Amateur Players Tour had the honor to present Folds of Honor with a $3000.00 dollar donation. The chapters collected donations thru the tour year by having 50/50 raffles at each event. We will be working with the Folds of Honor for 2023 and looking for more ways to increase the donations next year. Thanks to all the players who make this possible!
