    Welcome to the first Community Calendar presented by gaoerfuqiu. I created this because it is obvious that there are too many tournaments in the Community-Organized Tournaments forum to keep track of. This is meant to be used for you the WGT player to find tournaments that they’d like to sign up for. I have lots of great ideas for this, as well as for tournaments of my own, and I put a lot of time and effort into this, so please enjoy and use accordingly!

    ---*** The below tournaments have no affiliation with World Golf Tour or its trademarks.***---

     

    2009 WGA Tour:

     

    Ø  a 19-week series of 27-hole tournaments ending with the WGA Cup for players ranked 10-50 and the WGA Grand Slam for players ranked 1-10, finally culminating with a head-to-head match between the WGA Cup champion and the WGA Grand Slam champion

    Ø  currently playing The Wyndham Championship (August 20-23, played on Kiawah Island Front 9 and Back 9)

    Ø  one tournament has been completed, The PGA Championship (August 13-16) – JALAII (-8), champion, CoolSwing (-7), runner-up, PigKiller (-5), third place

    NOTES: I would like to add a feature for the next update: reviews and ratings. From now on, please post a comment with reviews for tournaments YOU HAVE PLAYED IN. This means something like, “I give _________ four out of five stars because __________ and I really enjoyed it. I recommend playing in his/her tournaments.” Or something to a negative but constructive effect.

     

     

    Also, I’m hoping that from now on, new tournaments will first send me a message or post on my wall before posting it in this forum. I’m sure this calendar will get a lot of publicity, so for those tournaments that would like more than just a few people, come to me first and I can spread the word and get more sign-ups for you. So thank you very much and stay tuned for the next update.

    Wow this is great! Keep putting these out! Oh and I know the Titleist ProV1 Players Championship says 36 players but later in the post I changed it to 16 players sorry for the confusion.

    Good luck with this.  I stopped updating my Community Tournament Calendar because no one ever bothered to tell me anything.  =/

    For, erm, less info, click here. You don't have to, you know, because there is THIS list, and my list isn't as good, or detailed, but still...

    I'm not very good at advertising, am I?

    Please, EllisSpice, give yourself some more credit. Just as I did, you took the time to list ALL of the community tournaments out there right now, and mind you there are way too many! And maybe you should work on your advertising skills ... uh, they're not, um, how do I say this, um, to put it nicely, THEY'RE NOT GOOD! But you'll learn.

    And nivlac, I hope that people do respond to this, although it's quite possible my calendar will go the route that yours did, which by the way I used as a very helpful template for this (if you don't mind). I want the robots here on WGT to bend to my overwhelming will and do whatever I tell them to do without question.

    Great job Gaoerfuqiu ! Thanks for taking the time to list all the community tourneys.  May i make a suggestion that you included a link to each of the tourney's post, that would be really convenient.

    Thank you coolswing for your awesome suggestion. Actually I was going to link each one but I completely forgot about it. I'm working on it now.
