2016-2017 Event Entry Procedures:
This information has been updated for the 2016-2017 Season
IMPORTANT.....Please read below
Please Note: ALL events on the FPGTour (**Except The Ocala Open) require that all competitors ride in carts. Though caddies are welcome at all of our events, the PLAYER and his / her clubs MUST be on the cart.
** The Ocala Open at Candler Hills requires all competitors to WALK during the stipulated round. Caddies may use a golf cart during the Championship at their discretion.
Cart Policy: We have at each venue a (2) two cart per group rule.
Though we encourage spectators, the carts are for the contestants and not for parents, Wives and girlfriends.
How To Enter an FPGTour Event:
1. Any player may call the FPGTour office to enter an event. A credit card is needed for all Non-Member entries to be accepted.
2. Any player may download and print an entry form (Generic Entry Forms are located on the left side of this page) and mail them with the appropriate entry amount to the FPGTour office. The entry (if mailed) must be received at the FPGTour office at least 10 days prior to the entry deadline. Non-Members may send Credit Card info, Money Orders, or cashier checks. Personal checks will not be accepted from Non-Members unless received at our office at least 30 days prior to the events entry deadline.
Now avaiable for 2016-2017:
Players may enter on-line via the BlueGolf link located at the top of the schedule page. There is a 2.9% service fee associated with this process and will be added to your total at check-out.
As always, Players who have registered by phone and supplied a credit card to guarantee their spot in an event, may pay for the event at registration with Cash.
In addition to the above, here are a few more entry regulations that apply to everyone.
This pertains ONLY to the first round of the Tournament......Players should allow an additional 10 minutes to your pre-game warm-up routine to complete the following requirements.
ALL players MUST check in to the registration area upon their arrival at each Tournament site regardless of whether they have pre-paid their entry fee or not. THIS IS MANDATORY AT EVERY EVENT except the Ocala Open. I have to know that you have arrived on the premises.
The FPGTour gives each contestant the option to enter one of the many "side games" offered at each tournament.These include the popular "Skins Game" available for each round, and the "out of the money" or (OTM) Second Day Event offered for round two. The Second Day Event may be entered on the first tee prior to your round two tee-time.
If this happens to be your first event with the FPGTour this season, you MUST fill out a W-9 form (or the W8-BEN form for foreign players) for tax purposes. No player will receive a check without first filling out the forms that apply to the individual competing. If you do not have a U.S. Social Security Number, or a Tax I.D. number, you can still play and win, but I am required by Law to deduct 30% from your winnings and submitt that amount to the U.S. Treasury. There are NO exceptions to this rule.
For your convenience, we have a link to both forms located below. You can edit and fill out these forms from your computer, save the information and email it to our office thus eliminating the need to do it at the registration table.
