               Florida Professional Golf Tour    
Join us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER for current news and updates. 

This is important.....
The Florida Professional Golf Tour encourages all prospective professionals to check out what we have to offer when considering where you want to compete this season....We offer great competition on some of Central Florida's finest courses. We continue to provide an affordable playing opportunity during the winter to help you improve your skills without breaking the bank, and still offer you a chance to make some good money in the process. 
The FPGTour's  Winter Tournament program paid out more than $2,000,000.00 in Official Money over the past four seasons. 
The 2015-2016 Schedule marks the 12th season since the Tour was re-named.....But remember, this year marks the 55th year of operation since the late Bill Meyers started it all at the  Riviera Open.
The Florida Professional Golf Tour welcomes all Professionals and accomplished amateurs, and hopes they will consider the  FPGTour when creating their competitive playing schedules.

A message from the Tournament Director.....

The FPGTour (also known as The Florida Professional Golf Tour) will soon be accepting applications for membership to it's 2015-2016 Winter Tournament Series. Players are once again reminded that the earlier you join the less you pay to belong.  With our 2015-2016 Winter Tournament schedule nearing completion, this year promises to be one of the best in the Tour's long history which dates back to the Inaugural Riviera Open 55 years ago. As always, the FPGTour continues to offer players a very strong competitive Winter Tournament Program yet remains extremely affordable and is open to anyone in the world.
In addition to our regular tournament schedule, the FPGTour offers Senior Professional's an outstanding opportunity to compete at each and every venue on the schedule including the ever popular 54th Annual Riviera Open, and the 2015 Indian River Open. Both of these events offer a "Separate Senior Division" along with the chance to "Double-Dip" against the young guns if you choose to. The "Senior Division" age requirement for these two events is 50 years of age. 

Here are just a few of the Senior professionals and Senior Amateurs who are regular participants on the FPGTour: Mitch Adcock, Dave Rummells, Gene Jones, Kenny Knox, Morris Hatalsky, Tim Balmer, Don Bell,  Gary Trivisonno, Regan O'Rourke, Mike Beaver, Beau Baugh, Lloyd Fisher, Bruce Helbig, Mike Lawrence Sr., Kevin Syring, Mark Bucek, Damon Green, Charlie Bowles, Paul Curry, Fulton Allem, Alan Tedder, Peter Serafimoff, Marcus Beck, and of course, our friend,  the late PGA Tour Veteran, Mr. Mike Smith.
The list just keeps on going with too many great Senior Professionals and Amateurs to list them all here, but you get the idea.
Don't be one of those guys that complains about having nothing to play in, get up, get outside, and join us this fall.
