PROFESSIONAL DIVISION RULES
**PRO DIVISION IS SEPERATE** Amateurs and Professionals will NOT compete in the same division
The “Pro Series” will play concurrently with our regular scheduled events.
The 3RVRS Golf Tour team is comprised of individuals who love the game of golf. We have experience in golf administration, business dealings, public service, and competing in professional golf tournaments. At the end of the day, like you, we are just golfers looking for additional competitive playing opportunities. While all professional tours preach transparency our fee structure is very simple, thanks in large part to players paying green fees directly to host course the day of the event. All players KNOW exactly where each dollar goes. In addition to transparency, we feel our no nonsense approach will be welcomed by players… No membership fees, no outrageous entry fees, we simply provide a cost effective professional golf option, with “worth while payouts.”
