The Buckeye Tour was established in 2016 as a platform for aspiring professional golfers. Starting with the 2017 season, we will run twelve 36-hole events on championship golf courses in Northern Ohio.

The goals of the Buckeye Tour are simple –

  • Provide a place for new and aspiring professional golfers to compete in tournaments to hone and develop their skills.
  • Create events that maximize the value of a player’s entry fee, as well as the quality of the venues.
  • Deliver benefits to members of the tour, including discounts on essential golf equipment, and access to practice facilities away from the events themselves.
  • Most of all, help professional golfers prepare and plan their careers by giving them a championship experience.

Each of the Buckeye Tour’s 12 events in 2017 is played on a Wednesday and Thursday, with a Tuesday practice round day, allowing players to participate in PGA Tour Monday qualifiers, and still play in events.

Our entry fees are created to maximize the effective purse – an 82% minimum payback from member entry fees – while still guaranteeing top-class golf courses, and being affordable. We aim to be as transparent as possible about where our players’ money is going, and how it is paid out in purses.
