We are

By the Players...For the Players



The Amateur Players Tour is a members-only international golf society consisting of Local Chapters organized throughout the United States and Canada for men and women of all ages and skill levels who love the game of golf, enjoy participating in various competitive golf tournament formats, love to travel to play at new golf courses and facilities around the country, and desire fellowship on and off the golf course with other golf fanatics who can’t get enough of the game, its history, its architecture, and its spirit.

We created the APT to improve upon the repetitive stroke play experience common among the various am tour companies out there.  One way we are doing so is infusing elements of the private club experience into our model by changing up the tournament formats to include match play, Stableford scoring, team event formats, member-guest events, and more.  Our focus is always on the player experience with a heavy emphasis on fun and friendly competition.

While the Local Chapter events are the heart and soul of our society’s calendar with a healthy schedule in your local area with competitive entry fees, the APT also provides its members with opportunities for higher end, more exclusive experiences at some of the nation’s top golf resorts and private clubs.  These events are hosted and operated by the national office and open to entry by any member of the Tour.

The 2023 National Major schedule travels to some of the best golf destinations in the country - from a 54-hole major at Streamsong Resort, playing all 3 golf courses on property each rated in the Top-30 in America to Chambers Bayhost of the 2015 US Open in University Place, WA.  Over the 4th of July, the APT travels to Big Cedar Lodge to take on Tiger Woods' Payne's Valley and Ozark National for the Independence Open.  The tour will also make stops at the famous Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, PA, Walt Disney's Palm Course in Orlando, FL, Orange County National Golf Center & Lodge in Orlando, Florida, Bayonet & Black Horse in Monterey, CA, Kampen & Ackerman Hills at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, Annbriar Golf Course in St. Louis, MO, Sequoyah National in Whittier, NC and the Folds of Honor Challenge at American Dunes in Grand Haven, MI.

This year's North American Championship will be held in Myrtle Beach, SC from September 22nd-24th, 2023.  Players from all 40 chapters will converge to compete for the title of North American Champion.  All prizes will be paid in VISA Gift cards and under the guidelines of the USGA Rules of Amateur Status and we expect the total prize pool to be over $50,000!

We encourage you to reach out to the Local Chapter Owner in your area to find out more about how you can become a part of the APT brotherhood and get more out of your tournament golf experience.


What Our Players Say

"The best part of APT is the people. The players are a great group. The Chapter Owners are really good people who are doing a bang up job of making this tour a place where we can compete in a fun and friendly atmosphere."
