Player$ Golf Tour, now in our thirteenth year, was founded by JW Means III, John Riggle PGA, USGA, a few investors and the
bank, of course. The Player$ Golf Tour is a private invitational developmental tour for zero (0) to twenty eight (28) handicap
golfers, with a minimum of three (3) flights. Our tour is designed to emulate a professional style of play; the courses
are set up to include 6 hard holes, 6 easy holes and 6 medium holes in difficulty, like the PGA and LPGA tours.
The Player$ Golf Tour prides
itself on being the "Littlest Big Money" golf tour. Our players earn big money when they cash (and it's always paid
in CASH; NO SCRIP OR GIFT CERTIFICATES EVER!!!) Since our inception in 2003 the players have earned over 3.1
MILLION DOLLARS ($3,100,000). This milestone was accomplished in just over 10
The Player$ Golf Tour, adhering strictly to a "Bare Bones, No Frills" management style, pays 90%
of the money back to its players. What is hard to believe is that the 90% return to the golfers is four (4) times more money
paid back than to golfers on the number one PGA tour.
Many other tours guarantee maximum money with QUALIFIERS,
stating there has to be a minimum number of players before they pay their maximum money. TRANSLATION: there is NO GUARANTEE.
On these same tours, when they've reached their minimum number of players to match their maximum money guarantee, the following
happens: all 100% of the remaining players monies goes 100% into the management pockets.
At the end of 2006, we included an "ALTERNATE SHOT"
championship with our annual Christmas Party. Our players enjoyed the format so we will be repeating this type of event once
or twice a year. We invite you to click on the page tabs for more information on our Features and Benefits, Results,
Upcoming Events and 2015 Tour Schedule.
Thanks for stopping by.
