The 2-Man Team Championship will take place at Stoneybrook East on Thursday-Friday, February 11-12. Please call the FPGTour office at 407-619-4778 to enter your team.
Current field size entered is 20 Teams......Call today

We now have 80+ entries for the Wildwood Open and Pro-Am scheduled for Feb.19-21
This event has $5000 added money....well worth playing in this one.

I need 35 professionals for the Friday pro-am, cost is $35 extra but 100% of that money goes to a pro only purse and skins game. This year the pro-am will be a 9:30am shot-gun start to make the day a little more manageable. I need those interested to call me at the office to sign up for the pro-am. You can also enter the Championship with me by calling 407-619-4778.

The Crane Lakes Invitational and Pro-Am is also doing well. This event also has $5000 added money making it another "Can't miss" event. Those that have played know how good the conditions are at Crane Lakes.....Best greens around, and the overall condition of this course is second to none. Our host is Rod Perry, the National PGA Club Professional Champion, Rod runs this Pro-Am, so you need to call his pro-Shop to enter this Pro-Am. His pro shop number is 386-679-2711. Past Champions include the defending Champion Nick Lindheim of Sattelite Beach, and returning Champion Jon Mansfield of Clearwater, FL.

This years Ocala Open is beginning to shape up with some very strong players already committed to play. Past Champions of this event include: Dan McCarthy, Patrick Sheehan, Danny Ellis, Yohann Benson, and Two-Time Champions
  Ted Potter, Travis Hampshire, and Rod Perry.
Last years Championship drew 162 players from around the world, a bit too many to repeat, so this year we are maxing out the field at 144 players. That being said, don't wait too long to enter and take the chance of being shut-out. This is the Florida Professional Golf Tour's largest, most Tour Player Friendly event we offer. Players are greeted at Candler Hills with private parking accessible only to the competitors, a player only area with complimentary food and beverage on each of the Championship days, and much, much, more.

The annual Charity Pro-Am is held on Tuesday before the first round.  This pro-am is by invitation only and Professionals will be chosen by the Ocala Open pro-am selection committee. There is no fee for professionals to participate in the pro-am, all interested competitors must submit their paid Championship Entry no later than March 5th, 2016 to be included in the Pro-Am selection process. This is a very limited Pro-Am field and there is NO guarantee made to any Professional that his name will be chosen.

About the Open Championship:
The Ocala Open is the only "Walking Event" on our schedule. Players must walk during the Championship proper, Caddies are welcomed (and recommended), but players may carry their own clubs or use a pull cart if they wish too. As an incentive, caddies MAY if they choose, take a riding cart with the players clubs on it, during the Championship, (No Charge for the cart). So if you guys want Mom, Dad, Wife, Girlfriend, etc. to caddy for you....We have  you covered.
Entry for this years Championship is $675 for all FPGTour Members, and $750 for all other competitors.
The Championship is a 54-Hole Stroke Play event with a cut to the low 33% of scorers after 36 holes.
As always, we Guarantee the Champions first place check to be $12,000.00

This Notice has been moved to the top of this page in order to ensure ALL competitors are aware of the FPGTour Entry and Withdrawal policies.


Please take a moment to read it in it's entirety.  


pecial Notice to ALL future contestants:

2015-2016 Entry Procedures

These procedures will continue to be updated as the BlueGolf transition nears completion.

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.  On-Site checks from Non-Members  will not be accepted at registration.
FPGTour Members in good standing, may continue to enter any event on the schedule (With exception to the 2016 Ocala Open) by verbally committing to the FPGTour office.
The FPGTour apologizes for any inconvenience 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 consistent.
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.

IMPORTANT: The ONLY acceptable form of withdrawal from our events is to Call our tournament office at 407-619-4778.
Any player (Member or NON-Member) who withdraws from any event after the 5:00pm Entry Deadline will incur a late withdrawal penalty of $35.00 . Non-Members will have their Credit Cards charged the appropriate amount, Members will be assessed 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.

 Rules change on Grooves...
Updated August 6th, 2013
After careful consideration, the FPGTour has decided to adopt the new grooves change as a "Condition of competition" for all future FPGTour events. Though we are a developmental tour for aspiring professional golfers we believe that by now all players should have acquired conforming clubs.
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, Tour, LATINOAMERICA Tour, or  PGA Tour Canada 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 " MUST" conform.
