And just like that, the inaugural season has come to a close!
A Tour Champion has been determined and will be crowned at the Season-Ending party at Brookfields on Friday, October 22nd .
Finishing with a bang, Talamore Golf Resort was a fantastic host!
A course with everything right in front of you, rewards execution, and has greens that are DANGEROUS unless your below the hole
The 32 qualifying golfers were treated to the first true Fall day of the year, with a 20-degree difference from Sat to Sun.
Golfers were also treated to a tee-gift on behalf of the RDUgolf Tour to show our appreciation for those that have joined us in the 2021 season!
A customized valuables bag filled with various goodies awaited each golfer.
