A message from the Tournament Director.....
(also known as The Florida Professional Golf Tour
) is now accepting applications for membership to it's 2013-2014 Winter Tournament Series. Players are once again reminded that the earlier you join the less you pay to belong.
With our 2013-2014 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 53 years ago. As always, the FPGTour
continues to offer an affordable, competitive,Tournament program that 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 53rd Annual Riviera Open, and the 2014 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. All other regular 36-Hole events have a senior age requirement of 48 years.
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, Jim Chancey, Gary Trivisonno, Regan O'Rourke, Mike Beaver, Beau Baugh, Lloyd Fisher, Bruce Helbig, Kevin Syring, Mark Bucek, Damon Green, Mike Smith, Ken Lacy, Charlie Bowles, Paul Curry, Fulton Allem, Alan Tedder, Peter Serafimoff and Marcus Beck..The list just keeps on going with too many great Senior Professionals 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.
