FAQs

What is the WKND Golf Tour?

Simply put, The WKND Golf Tour runs 2-person amateur golf tournaments in fun formats (2-man scramble, 2-man best ball, etc) at some of the state’s best public courses. We also donate some proceeds to The First Tee of West Michigan! There is no handicap needed (we use flights) - simply sign up with a partner for whichever events work for you and try us out!

A typical event will have 50-60 teams, split into 5 flights. Flights are based on “day of” scoring on the day of the event.

Who can sign up for WKND Golf Tour events? Do I need a handicap to sign up and play?

All golfers are welcome to sign up for WKND Golf Tour events (age 15 & older). Golfers do not need a handicap to play, as we use flights, not handicaps. For a typical 18-hole event, this is how it works:

  • All teams play 18-holes with their partner
  • After the round, we randomly select 1 of the 9-holes to determine flights. If the 9 that is selected is the 1st 9 Holes, then teams are placed into flights based on the 1st 9 hole score (so that teams end up competing against teams with similar scores/ability levels)
  • Within each flight, teams are ranked by their Total, 18-hole score

The top few teams in each flight will earn great prizes - including VISA Gift Cards!

Note: We are an amateur golf tour in that our prizes, prize amounts and formats allow our competitors to retain their amateur status. However, all golfers are welcome to compete, we will not check for amateur status, nor is it required to enter our events or win prizes. Any pros that enter our events will automatically be placed in the Championship Flight, regardless of “day of” flighting scores.
