Welcome to the 2023 Tidewater Golfweek Amateur Tour Season

Generated button


VISA GIFT CARDS, and Big Day Money Games all season!

The well-established Golfweek Amateur Tour is ready to host tournaments in Hampton Roads, Williamsburg, North Carolina and now Richmond.

Membership will start on November 25th for the Tidewater & Richmond Golfweek Amateur Tour for 2023! The tour, which provides amateurs the experience of competitive stroke-play golf will host a great local schedule with one day and two day majors.

Founded in Charlotte, NC in 1995, the Golfweek Amateur Tour just celebrated its 25th season in 2019, and it's largest membership season in 2022. With more than 50 divisions across the country.

“Now amateurs can play a Tour just like the pros, without the travel,” said local Tour Director, Lyle Joyner. Our events are held locally on weekends, perfect for the average golfer.

Tournament format is gross stroke play, with USGA rules in effect. Players will use LIVE Scoring during the tournament to know where they stand. Players Tour Handicaps will be monitored throughout the season and if improved they will be promoted.

Golfers may join the tour at any time by going to www.AmateurGolfTour.net Members can play on other tour tournaments during the season, and not just the home tour.

During the tournaments, we will have optional Day Money games to include Flight Skins, Super Skins and Closest to the Pin. Crystal trophies will be awarded to the flight winners at each event and VISA Gift Cards to the Top Finishers in each flight.

Golfers who qualify receive invitations to the 2023 Golfweek Amateur Tour National Championship, 54 Hole event, in Hilton Head Island, SC.
