Who Can Play?

The Golfer Tour is an open mixed (male and female) series available to all players with an official Handicap issued by Golf Australia.

Players without a Handicap are welcome to play in our events but will not be awarded points and thus are ineligible for the National Final.

Please contact us if you would like assistance with obtaining an official Handicap recognised across Australia.
