Tour Overview

  • The 1611 Indoor Golf Tour is an individual stroke-play consisting of 10 monthly tournaments stretching from January to October.

Monthly Tournament Format

*All players MUST BE logged into their Trackman Account and must play within the "Tournaments" tab on Trackman for all qualifying rounds. Or else the round will not be recorded.

  • Handicaps & Flights:

    • Different from previous 1611 Tours, the 1611 Indoor Golf Tour will have no handicaps (# of pops) or flights. Instead, a modified Callaway Handicap System will be used for Tour rounds. 

  • Callaway Handicap System:

    • The Callaway Handicap System is handicapping system that helps determine a players handicap based on a single 18-hole round. You can learn more about how the Callaway Handicap System works here. The Tour will use a modified version of this handicap system. 

  • Monthly Registration

    • Each month players who wish to play in that month's tournaments, will need to:

      1. Fill out a registration form.

      2. Pay $20 entry fee (This does not include your bay rental. 1611 Members can use their monthly hours. Non-members will be responsible for paying for their bay rental.)

  • Qualifying Rounds

    • Once a player is registered, they can play up to, but not more than 3 qualifying rounds. The players best score will be taken as their tournament score.

    • Qualifying rounds must be played during the qualifying period. Typically, the qualifying period will start on the 1st of each month and end on the 2nd to last Sunday of each month. (Check The Tour homepage for Tournament Schedule & Qualifying Periods.)

    • Following the qualifying period, the players with the top 4 scores will advance to the Tournament Finals.

Tournament Finals

  • Players who play in the tournament finals on the final Sunday, will have their bay rental comped.

  • Players who cannot make the Tournament Finals on the final Sunday of the month, will be allowed to play early but will be responsible for purchasing a bay rental. (1611 Members can use their monthly hours. Non-members will be responsible for paying for their bay rental.)

  • If a player who makes the Finals is unable to make the tournament finals (either on the final Sunday or prior), the player must withdraw from the Finals. At which time the player with the next lowest score will have the opportunity to compete in the Tournament Finals.

  • Players who cannot make the Tournament Finals are responsible for letting 1611 know, no less than 72 hours prior to Finals. Players who "no-show" the Tournament Finals are subject to a DQ for that month's tournament.
