New Over 35 Mid-Amateur Golf Tour Open for Entries in 2020
Amateur golfers over the age of 35 now have a new tour to play on – the Over 35 Mid-Amateur Golf Tour.
Founded in 2019, the Tour does exactly what it says on the tin, offering a competitive tour for mid-amateur players to compete on many of the finest golf courses in the UK.
Any amateur golfer with a handicap of 18 or lower can join the tour and enter events. Indeed, all of the Over 35 Tour’s competition are CONGU handicap qualifying, so players can lower their handicap as well as sharpening their competitive skills.
In addition to being played on top courses, many of which are ranked in the top 100 in Britain and Ireland, each event has eight nett and gross prizes and contributes to a season-long order of merit.
This offers further prizes for nett winners and gross winners alike, as well as separate awards for senior players who are over age 50. Furthermore, the top 24 order of merit leaders will qualify for a season-ending final tournament. This will be held at a yet-to-be-decided premium course in October.
Building on its first ever event at Prestatyn Golf Club last summer, the tour is hosting six competitions this year, all of which are open for entries:
