The Accelerated Golf Tour (AGT) is a series of two–day tournaments designed for male and female collegiate and advanced high school golfers that began in the St. Louis metro area in the summer of 2011. The AGT consists of a series of tournaments during June, July and, in some years, the first week of August. The tournaments are conducted on challenging courses in the greater St. Louis metro area.

Why the AGT?
After talking with many college coaches, Carol Fromuth, AGT Tour Administrator, realized there was a void in golf programs for collegiate and advanced high school players. The AGT has filled that void, providing a higher level of competition. The two-day tournaments offer an opportunity for coaches to observe players’ skills and temperament for consistency over a two-day event.
Pay as you Play?
THE AGT DOES NOT REQUIRE A MEMBERSHIP FEE TO PLAY IN EVENTS. On the AGT website, you will find an entry form that can be completed and submitted to our Entry Director or printed out and postal mailed. You may enter as few or as many events as you wish to play in 2014 and pay for events as you prefer - individually or totally. Events are $165 each; however, the AGT is offering a package deal: 3 events for $450, payment must be received in full prior to your first tournament. Any additional entry over the original three will be $150 for the remainder of the summer. As entries and invoices sent by the Entry Director are processed through our secure payment company, PayPal, entrants name will appear on the applicable tournament list. We do request that payment should be completed no later than one week prior to the first day of the event.
The USGA will be retiring both the Men and Women Amateur Public Links Championships at the end of 2014. A new and exciting event will be added to the 2015 USGA Championhship schedule--a Four-Ball Championship.
With this in mind, the AGT made a decision to add a Four-Ball event to the 2014 schedule. It will be a fun event for the AGT. The format consists of a two person team, playing each hole and recording the better ball score for that team on that hole. The two person team can include male/male, female/female or male/female.
If you have a friend that you enjoy playing golf with or you have met another player on the AGT tour that you enjoy playing with...perfect...select him or her as your partner and enjoy a fun event that is new for 2014.
Three Divisions (male/male, female/female and male/female) will be used to determine the award winners for this fun event. So grab a partner and play this new two-day event at The Falls Golf Course on July 9-10.
