Please Note: Important announcements....
Hello guys, thanks again for another great Winter Tournament program.
Please be reminded that if you have any un-cashed checks in your possession, please take a moment to cash or deposit them in your bank accounts as all checks written expire after 60 days, and with my schedule as it is during the next few month's, waiting too long could become a problem for both of us.
So please get them in your accounts so that I may finally close the books on this season.
On a more personal note:
For those of you who may not have heard, my solid as all get out, right hand girl Christine Cho has moved on to bigger and better things, and after 4 years of putting up with me and the rigors of running the Florida Professional Golf Tour, is moving back to her beloved state of Washington, Seattle to be exact.....I would like to take a moment to thank her for all the hard work and long hours during her tenure with the FPGTour. The registration area won't be the same without her.
She wasn't just my assistant......She was and will always be my good friend....My sincerest and best wishes to her and her family, I wish them all good health and happiness in the future.
The proposed Summer Series has been postponed until further notice......
Rules change on Grooves...
Updated November 15, 2012
After careful consideration, the FPGTour has decided NOT to adopt the new grooves change as a "Condition of competition" for the upcoming 2012-2013 tournament season.
The FPGTour would like to caution all players who plan on competing in, or Qualifying for a USGA Championship (ie. US Open, US Senior Open) or any PGA Tour, Champions Tour, or Web.com Tour event after January 1, 2010.......PLEASE check the Conditions of the Competition for these events before attempting to compete, as it is our understanding that your clubs will have to conform.
Side Note: If you call the Tour Office and we're unable to take your call, please leave us a message and we will return your calls as soon as possible. Due to the amount of telemarketing phone calls received at the office, we can not return missed calls if we don't recognize the number, or you do not leave us a message with a call back number.
Special Notice to ALL future contestants:
Effective Immediately.....The Florida Professional Golf Tour has adopted a new entry procedure for all contestants...These new procedures will take effect immediately and are as follows.....
All Non-Member entries MUST be secured with a Credit Card (Unless pre-paid by Cash or check)...No exceptions.
FPGTour Members in good standing, may continue to enter any event on the schedule (With exception to the 2013 Ocala Open) by verbally committing to the FPGTour office.
The FPGTour apologizes for any inconvienence this new entry procedure may cause, but I believe too many players feel it's OK to just pull out, or withdraw after the deadline with no consequence. In order to protect both the field and the Host Facility I must make these necessary changes to insure the size of the field I promise the Host Course remains consistant.
The FPGTour's withdrawal policy will remain the same and is as follows:
Any player may withdraw without penalty so long as He or She does so by the ENTRY DEADLINE, and that means 5:00pm est. as stated on the schedule page of the FPGTour's web site.
Any player (Member or NON-Member) who withdraws from any event after the 5:00pm Entry Deadline will incur a late withdrawal penalty of $25.00 . Non- Members will have their Credit Cards charged the appropriate amount, Members will be assesed the late withdrawal penalty at their next event.
Any player (Member or NON-Member) who withdraws after the Round One pairings have been released will be charged the FULL ENTRY AMOUNT. Non-Members will have their Credit Cards charged the appropriate amount, FPGTour Members will be subject to the same amount, due and payable before they can enter any future events.
In addition, any FPGTour member who fails to follow these entry procedures will forfeit his or her membership privileges, and will be required to pre-pay all entries in all future events.
