The Gulf Coast's Original Amateur Golf Tour
Established in 1990

About the Tour

The tour was founded by Junior Ingram and others in 1980 with the purpose of giving golfers of the panhandle area a place to compete.  No handicaps, no mulligans, no windmills, just golf. 

Those general principles remain the same 20 years later, with one exception.  In 2008, the tour expanded to include an Open division and a Senior division to give opportunities to those golfers that were not scratch players, but still wanted to participate on a tour and have a place to compete.  In 2016, the tour merged with the Emerald Coast Senior Scratch Series and expanded to include a Super Senior Division.

The tour is about the competition.  Players earn points at each event based on their order of finish.  The top point earner for the season is declared the player of the year.  The top point earners who played in at least 5 events are invited to participate in the season ending North-South Cup (12 open division players, 8 senior division players, 4 super senior division players).

Although, the tour is mostly about the competition, gift certificates are awarded to the top finishers in each division.  All gift certificates will be redeemable at all Edwin Watts Golf locations (including their on line store).
