The Chicago Golf Tour

chicago-golf-tourLooking to fit more golf into your schedule this year? The Chicago Golf Tour is a flexible way to compete against other local golfers while playing some of the best public courses in the Chicagoland area.

The Chicago Golf Tour offers three 12-event tours featuring golf courses from the south, north and west sides of Chicagoland including Harborside International Golf Center, The Glen Club, Stonewall Orchard Golf Club, Mistwood Golf Club and Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. The Tour is a singles, net handicap, tournament rule, stroke play format.

Started in 2019 with the inception of the South Side Tour, the Chicago Golf Tour grew to 137 members in 2020 and will be launching North and West Side Tours this year. Golfers can compete in any or all of the Tours.

The Tour allows players two weeks to play the scheduled course. Competitors must play with another member on tour to attest to their official score. Players are allowed practice rounds.

Each Tour utilizes handicap flights and a FedEx Cup-style point system with event payouts and an end of the year purse. The entry fees go towards event payouts, end of year purse and the member website.

A members-only website is also provided and includes a live leaderboard, score posting, stat tracker and tour schedule. Members are responsible for booking their own tee times and paying their own greens fee at the golf course.

The cost to join the Chicago Golf Tour:

  • one tour – $200
  • two tours – $350
  • three tours – $500
  • CDGA club membership – $30

All Chicago Golf Tour members must have a current CDGA handicap index. All handicap indexes are welcome to join, but the maximum playing handicap is 18. Golfers with a handicap greater than 18 will play at the max of 18 regardless of course handicap or par.

Golfers age 55 and over can play from the combo tees, while golfers age 60 and above can play from from the white tees.
