How tour operates

The GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour in Indianapolis is the oldest and largest Amateur Golf Tour dedicated to Amateur Golfers of all skill levels. No qualifying required. For men and women, young and old. We use some of the best championship golf courses in and around the Indianapolis area to host our tournaments making your experience the best possible tournament atmosphere that we can produce. 

When you sign up for the tour, we will place you in a flight based on your current USGA Index. If you do not have an official handicap, no problem. We will need your last five scores with the course name and tee box played from; we will calculate your handicap using those scores. During the tournaments, you will compete against other players from your flight in a true stroke play event. At all AGT events, the top golfer in every flight win a trophy and a gift card, and all participants will earn points toward a season-long championship in their flight. Prize Pay-Outs are based on the number of players in your flight.

Listed below are the flight assignments based on your handicap:

  • Championship Flight: 0 to 3.9
  • A Flight: 4.0 to 8.9
  • B Flight: 9.0 to 13.9
  • C Flight: 14.0 to 18.9
  • D Flight: 19.0 and Higher

Note that once you become a member we will maintain your handicap (AGT index) in our website based on the tournaments that you play only in our tour.

The season long points winners from each flight will be awarded a special trophy and his/her next season membership fee will be waived. Also, the overall points winner among all players in our tour will receive a special trophy and his/her National Championship fee will be paid. Visit our website to check out those awesome trophies!

The top 10 in each flight have the opportunity to compete in the National Championship at Hilton Head Island, SC in October every year. Over 1000 players from 50 cities will compete in this 3-day, 54-hole event each year.

Cash Games in each event: We will also have optional cash games at each event. These include Skins, Super Skins and Closest to the Pin Contest on the Par 3s. We will also have a 50/50 raffle; 50% of all proceeds go to Stand Up To Cancer. 

Indiana Cup: At the end of the season, golfers who finish in the top 3 in their flight receive an invitation to participate in the anual Indiana cup event, where Indianapolis tour players will play against the IN/KY tour for Indiana Cup. We won the cup in 2019, 2020 and 2021; we will play to retain the cup in 2022!
