Pacific Golf Series offers up new events

Updated: May 2, 2013

Amateur golfers from around the Pacific Northwest have another competitive avenue with the new Pacific Golf Series

The Pacific Golf Series kicked off in March and features at least four tournaments each month before finishing up in early December with a pair of tournaments at Willows Run and Legion Memorial.

The Pacific Golf Series will host tournaments at some of the top golf courses in the Pacific Northwest including Salish Cliffs, The Home Course, Washington National and Chambers Bay.

Tournament results are based on point systems – the better you finish the more points you get. And the more points you get the better your prize will be. Prizes will be redeemed onto a VISA gift card. So now you can play as an Amateur and Spend like a Professional.

A total of 50 percent of the field gets paid and 100% of the pot goes to the players. The higher you finish, the more points you get. There will be a season long total of the top finishers and a top-16 match play event that will determine the PGS Tour Champion

Every entry fee includes two sponsored KP holes that every player gets to participate in just for entering the tournament There are also seven mini tournaments within the series that will win two players free entry into every 2013 Cascade Cup event.

Clayton Yakubow, in charge of Tour Development for the Pacific Golf Series, said the series also cracks down on sandbaggers and thinks players will like the payoff system for each tournament. Nathan Moss is the tournament director and Kari Klaas is in charge of member support. For more information, see
