How Do I Win the Red River Cup Points Race?


The FairWay Golf Tour's Red River Cup pays CASH bonuses at the end of the year for players who accrue enough points. These points are given for membership, early registration, participation and performance. Last year, the tour paid just over $10,000 in BONUS CASH to the top 10 points winners. This year, double cash will be going into the pool to give us a projected payout goal of $25,000. This cash will be awarded to the top 20 points winners at the conclusion of the 2012 season. Players will be able to watch the cash pool get deeper as the year goes on and see where they stand in the race each week with online tracking! Here is how YOU can win the RED RIVER CUP: 1.)
