Mark, enjoyed my first event at Country Club this week. I wanted to reach out to you and say that I was very impressed with how you and your team have put this back together. It felt organized, safe and focused. While I missed the hugs on the first tee, I respect what you have done and provided to all us hackers!
First of all, I want to say thank you for the privilege of joining the AM Tour. Everything was very well organized, and every one of your team was very welcoming. It was a great day and I’m looking forward to more.
Just wanted to send you a note to say how great my first experience was on the GTA AM Tour. What you have built is really outstanding and is so great for us golfers. It was great getting to meet you on the first tee and I am very much looking forward to participating in the rest of the tournaments I'm signed up for!
I wanted to thank you and the whole staff at the tour for the awesome experiences I’ve had at every event, the events are so well run and all of us players feel like we get treated so well. Playing on the tour has helped me grow so much as a competitive golfer and taught me so much about myself and my golf game in different situations.
Thanks for letting me join the AM Tour. I have registered for a number of events already.
More importantly I took your advice on handicapping to heart. I went to the Golf Canada site and read the section on handicapping. It was quite revealing to learn all I do not know.
Again thanks for the opportunity.
A quick note simply to say thank you for all that you do to make the Tour so enjoyable for all of us.
It truly must be a labour of love to do what you and your staff do for us when we simply just get to show up and play some of the most spectacular venues!
You and your staff are fantastic.
I cannot understate this.
Thank you very very much!
Just a quick note of thanks for making golf fun again. I have been a member at private clubs for most of my life and I have to say that the product that you and your team deliver every week is spectacular. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone who loves the game and wants to enjoy testing themselves against the course.
I want to thank you and all your staff for a fun and memorable season.
Your staff made event worthwhile.
From the smiling face at the welcome desk, the hugs at the first tee, the diligent marshals on course, the sympathetic rules officials , all the way to Jason having to record my hideous results, it was all top notch.
Just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for making my first year on tour so enjoyable. Everything is so well organized and all the guys are great and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my summer. Looking forward to seeing you in the spring and to another season!
Here's a great big congratulations for a job well done, first time I've seen so many .... nearly all events booked this early in the season. Looking forward to a great summer with your team on the links.
Your fast and easy access to the tour has been a joy for me, to say the least. I appreciate your quick responses and professional management... looking forward to it, already sounds like a great choice for me and my golf buddies..
The GTA AM Tour has been a special place to play competitive golf and I'll tell ya why...
My intention with the Tour was to gain competitive experience to turn pro. To face challenges/fears and meet the moment was part of my journey.
Even though my time on Tour was short, I was still able to meet the crew lead by Mark Young. I can truly say that he is a wonderful person and so are the people on his team. Every "check point": drive in (seeing the banners/sponsors), the sign in, first tee experience speech by Mark, ball spotters, marshals and final presentations were all part of an experience that is unique and offers value to each participant.
It felt that the Tour was able to provide me with exactly what I was looking for in advancing myself professionally and personally.
Thank you for time, attention and most importantly FUN! You guys rock, I'm going to miss playing your events.
I just wanted to take the time to say thanks for a great event (no thank you to Mother Nature), my first for GTA AM Tour event and first ever amateur golf tournament. I also wanted to please ask you to let your committee and crew of volunteers know they're doing a great job and it's appreciated.
I would like to thank you for organizing such a tremendous team to work alongside. Even with new staff at the helm they all ran the day like seasoned vets. As I’ve mentioned to you before, I’ve worked with many different Tours over the years and your Tour from organization and execution to the players you attract are first class.
I just want to say the GTA Tour is exactly what the website says it is. I did not know what to expect, but after playing your event at Beverly I was totally blown away. Very well organized, presentation gets an A+ and the technical aspect is miles a head of anything else out there. Great job.
You and your staff always do a great job. The Tour is well organized and it always impresses me how well all the events run. The pace of play is always excellent, making for enjoyable rounds. Your attention to the small details shows in every event. Thank you for all your hard work and effort and for giving us amateur golfers a place to play.
Each person working at The Tour, without exception, does a great job at whatever they are asked to do on any day. The skill of seeming to know everyone and making each of us feel unique and important, is a very special talent never lose that. You are an amazing group of dedicated people. Thank you.
I especially appreciate the inclusiveness of The Tour, which is something that I have personally experienced as lacking in the general golfing community. I've always felt welcome and treated equally with the men at every Tour event.
Just wanted to say my brother and I had a great time at Coppinwood, what a beautiful course! The weather was a challenge for sure but still fun none the less. You guys did a great job organizing and hosting the event..!
Just wanted to say how much fun I had this season. Everyone involved in the tour is fantastic. You all do a wonderful job. I am already looking forward to next season. Thanks again for an amazing season.
I like to start out with the negative stuff and get it out of the way. There, I got it out of the way. Seriously. I have nothing. I like to offer suggestions etc., but I don't have any as of yet. If something crosses my mind I will let you know. No complaints!!
I did want to share some thoughts and observations with everyone after completing my "rookie" season on the GTA Am Tour. I can tell you that you and your organization far exceeded my expectations. For the golfers, we show up and we are treated like professionals and we have the privilege to play at some of the top courses in the province. These events seemingly run flawlessly and nothing left to chance. Everyone, from the registration desk, to the rules officials and the spotters to the organizing committee deserve a huge thank you from myself.
I can't imagine a slicker operation where you can compete,play for fun,or to play for the experience that actually delivers on what they promise,and I owe you folks a huge thank you for making me feel comfortable and welcome and admittedly, like a player inside the ropes. The unseen efforts from the entire organization never seems to come to light when one is playing or afterwards having a beer while remembering memorable strokes from the day the amount of hard work and effort from countless people that allow people like me can cross this off my bucket list.
On an even happier note, I'm not scratching it off my list any time soon. I'm coming back in 2015 and play even more events thanks to all of you.
Just wanted to drop you a note and express my appreciation for being able to play the GTA Tour once again this year. It is a pleasure to be able to play so many great golf courses and at the same time get to mingle with so many folks dedicated to the game of golf. I look forward to every event that I can get on my schedule. Special thanks to the many sponsors that make this all possible and affordable. Using as many of the services and products as possible is my way of saying thanks to them.
First off, let me say I had perhaps one of the most exciting days of golf this past Monday at Lookout Point, my first tournament...ever! The silence on the first tee with you and others holding their hands up was certainly the highest tension 1st tee shot I may have ever played. At 91 I finished t-5 in B flight... not my best but not my worst. So all good. Fantastic actually!
Might I also say that the corporate sponsorship and the tourney organization was utterly first class and I truly felt that I was participating in a "real" golf tournament. From your discussion with us at the first tee to the spotters on the course and the folks processing the scores and results in the clubhouse, I've never experienced anything as well organized and professional (despite being "amateur") in my golfing life.
I know that I speak for the vast majority of players when I say that the GTA Amateur Tour is a "Class A" organization. It amazes me how you and your team make every event run as smoothly as it looks from our perspective, from the time we get to the course to the time we head home.
I think if anyone says they weren't nervous for their first round they are kidding themselves, but once you get into it you'll see it's really just a great group of guys playing golf, having fun and trying to shoot the lowest score they can. Everyone is pulling for everyone to do well.
It will make you a better player too. I learned a lot playing in those events, managing nerves, managing the course, taking your lumps. It's a great experience and if you can afford the time I'd strongly suggest everyone try it. The events are run so well, the courses are great, the people are great, and if you're lucky enough, the prizing is awesome as well.
Just want to thank you and all your staff for another great season with your tour. I have enjoyed every tournament and it has helped me become the golfer I am now. I will continue to recommend this great tour to all my friends and family and I wish you all the best.
Every competitor I’ve played with so far have been great. The GTA Amateur Tour has allowed me to hone my golf skills better than any private lesson or other experience. It allows me to play on great courses in a true competitive environment which forces me to focus on each and every shot.
