About

The 5th Annual City Tour Championship will be held from August 30th – September 1st at Pinehurst Resort’s Championship Courses #6 and #8 in North Carolina. Pinehurst Resort is steeped in tradition and has played host to some of golf’s greatest tournaments including the U.S. Open, The PGA Championship, Ryder Cup, Women’s U.S. Open and the U.S. Amateur. A select number of City Tour competitors will be able to play on the world renowned Pinehurst #2 the day following the tournament.

Aside from playing two of Pinehurst’s championship courses, tournament participants will have the opportunity to compete in a par 3 course challenge, putting competition and attend several outside events. Players staying on site can enjoy access to the pool, fitness facilities and will have free transportation on the Pinehurst shuttle across the entire Resort including their newly built brewery and practice facilities (unlimited access).

Championship Courses

Course No. 6

Pinehurst Resort Course #6

No. 6 is a departure from other Pinehurst courses in both design and temperament. Designed by Tom Fazio with the help of his uncle George, and provides one of the tougher challenges that Pinehurst has to offer. This course provides many more tree-lined fairways and has significantly less bunkers and waste areas than courses No. 2, No. 4, or No. 8.

This course should be a great challenge for both best ball and scramble players in the City Tour Championship.

Course No. 8

Pinehurst Resort Course #8

Pinehurst No. 8 finds itself on North Carolina’s Top Golf Courses on almost every list you can find. Designed by Tom Fazio, the course is a nod at Pinehurst No. 2 with some added elements. Natural wetlands, rolling terrain, and incredible variety between holes makes this course one of the most complete on Pinehurst’s property.

No. 8 is a true test, but one that any level of golfer can enjoy. With larger greens and less severe roll-offs from other Pinehurst courses.

Course No. 2

Pinehurst course number 2

“Pinehurst No. 2, the centerpiece of Pinehurst Resort, remains one of the world’s most celebrated golf courses. It has served as the site of more single golf championships than any course in America and hosted back-to-back U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships for the first time in 2014. The U.S. Open will return in 2024.”

As part of our most robust tournament package, a limited number of players will be able to take on Pinehurst No. 2 on Monday (the day after the Championship’s final round) for a price you can’t pass up!

The Cradle - Short Course

Pinehurst’s Cradle (Short Course) is a 9-hole track located right at the Resort’s main complex. City Tour players will have the option to compete in a pre-tournament challenge here for prizes including Cleveland Wedges and more. Don’t miss out on playing what The Golf Channel called “the most fun 10 acres in all of golf”.

2018-City-Tour-Chmampions-Best-Ball
2018 Best Ball City Tour Champions - Dirty Mike and The Boys (Raleigh)

2019 will mark the 5th year of Nextgengolf City Tour Championship. Last year’s championship hosted 130 players all looking for a chance to crown themselves the national champions. Weapons of Grass Destructio took home the scramble title and Dirty Mike and the Boys were about to secure the best ball title.

The National Championship was formed in 2014 when an age-old rivalry between Boston and New York was held in a Ryder Cup format on September 21, 2014. New York edged out Boston 16 1/2 to 15 1/2 to win the 2014 Championship. After the 2014 season, Nextgengolf expanded Nationwide and ran the 2015 City Tour Championship at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Chicago, the 2016 Championship at Seaview Golf Club in Atlantic City, 2017 Championship at True Blue & Caledonia in Myrtle Beach and the 2018 Championship at TPC New Orleans.
