1. How long has Open Golf Atlanta been around? 2009 was our first year in existence in which we ran 5 one day tournaments. We now run 20 tournaments a year with a combination of 1, 2 and 3 day events at some of the finest courses in the state. To see our results in previous years, please visit our ARCHIVES page.

2. Can Amateurs play? Yes. All amateurs are welcome to play providing they have a handicap index of 3.0 or better. Amateurs will be playing for equal prize money, paid in gift certificates, up to the maximum amount specified by USGA rules.

3. I just paid the eGolf Tour $2500 to play their events. How much is your membership fee? We have a varied membership fee structure. It largely depends on when you first joined. If you joined in 2010 for $50 and have consistantly been a member year over year, then your membership fee is $50. Currently, the membership fee for 2013 is $75. We consider ourselves to be heavy on development, not on price. The model is designed to aid in professional development and supplement a player’s schedule. That may mean a full time player or someone with a full time job.

4. $165 seems like a low entry fee. How much can I win? Even with a low entry fee we have been able to payout over $150,000 in prize money. We pay out 30% of the field including ties and in 2010 paid out a minimum of $1000 at every event.
