An Awesome New Year!

posted Apr 17, 2014, 12:18 PM by Kevin Burgess

We are rearing up for 2014. With some great golf, great players and a great course, we are ready to have an awesome weekend! We know that the Salute runs concurrently with worlds, but why travel that far when the best tournament you've ever played is right here in Charlotte (OK, that was a stretch, but worth a try!)

Hole sponsorships are available. Food sponsorships are available. Contact Kevin Burgess (980) 422-7638 for information or other large sponsorship inquiries.

The 21 Hole Salute is slated for July 13th and 14th of 2013. Don't let the "C-Tier" designation fool you. We feel like we can run a popular event with great support while cutting down on costs. The price of operation for a C-Tier is much more player friendly.

Practice your Superhero throwing and RL Smith as we look forward to showing off one of the areas highest rated courses!

18 Hole "Round Ratings" Available

Good news!

There has been some concern about playing a 21 hole tournament at a 18 hole course. The concern is that people will not know the approximate round ratings of the everyday course prior to worlds. The 21 Hole Salute and the PDGA have found a way to come up with ratings of the 18 hole course. These will be posted on the website after the tournament is completed and prior to Worlds!

Just another reason to play!

Origin of the Tournament Name

The "21 Hole Salute" is in honor of fallen officer Robert L Smith. The following is the story of officer Smith from the CMPD website.

In the early hours of Thursday, January 15, 1987, Adam Three Officers responded to a call for service regarding a subject shooting into a condominium complex on Spyglass Place. When they arrived at the scene, the officers attempted to locate the subject firing the shots. During the manhunt, Officer Robert L. Smith was shot fatally. This 7 year veteran of the Charlotte Police Department was 27 years old at the time of his death. A subject was subsequently arrested for Officer Smith's murder. Approximately 800 people attended the memorial service and 1,000 were present for the funeral services. To honor Officer Smith's memory, the wives of Adam-3 officers and other officer's wives tied yellow ribbons to every utility pole from the church to the cemetery.
