The First Annual First Tee Tour is Here!

Introduction

Welcome to the inaugural First Tee Tour “The Race for the Campbell Cup.” In 2021, we celebrate 25 years of golf at The Children’s Course and are excited to launch this competitive, yet fun, Tour Series!

Tournament Format

Players play in a scramble format, in which they will play with a partner. One of the advantages of playing a scramble format is that it encourages communication and community in young people as they are competing against others. If two players form a team they can maintain that team for each event. They would compete in the division of the oldest partner. If a player doesn’t have a partner for a particular event then the tournament director will aid in matching players to compete.

The First Tee Tour operates on a points system similar to the PGA, LPGA, and other major golf tours. The chart below lists the various ways a player can earn points and the quantity awarded for each accomplishment. Like First Tee, the First Tee Tour is more than just golf! At the conclusion of the Tour Championship, the participant with the most points in each division will be presented with the “Campbell Cup”.

How to Earn Points

Participants must report all points earned outside of First Tee Tour events in a given month by emailing tournaments@thefirstteegp.org within the first seven days of the following month (e.g. all points earned in the month of June must be reported by July 7th). IMPORTANT NOTE: It is the sole Responsibility of the Participants to report all points earned outside of First Tee Tour events.

First Tee-Greater Portland staff will award all points earned in First Tee Tour events (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and entry into an event). Only points earned in the previous month can be reported. Updated points standings will be posted online after each event.
