To all Golfweek Amateur Tour Members,


On behalf of the entire Golfweek organization, I want to thank you for your membership of the Golfweek Amateur Tour.  We are incredibly proud of our relationship with what we feel is the best option for organized amateur competition for folks like you and me. 


I am writing to inform you of some changes to our magazine frequency and format for 2021. Our plan is to publish four issues in 2021 including our annual Golfweek’s Best in April and Ultimate Guide in December. In addition to these two issues, we will publish a new issue called Get Equipped in February that will highlight everything new in the game for 2021 including equipment, gear, places to visit and more. The second new issue is titled Golf Life in July and will feature in-depth stories and interviews with the movers, shakers and personalities that drive the business and sport of golf. We are excited about the new schedule and plan to bring the same style of expert, in-depth journalism that you expect from Golfweek..

What are some 2022 Tidewater Tour changes....
  1. Pay Structure Matrix Link-Prize Pay Outs will be by Flight Size starting in 2022
  2. All ties for placing and prize pay-outs are done using the #1 Handicap Hole and back. (Placement will not be split among multiple players) 1st Place Tie will result in a on course Playoff, and all others would split the prize amounts based on placement.
  3. ONE-BALL RULE IS IN EFFECT IN 2022- The ball the player plays must be named on the current List of Conforming Golf Balls issued by the United States Golf Association. Players must have a marking on the ball they place in play. Note: The GWAT National Championship is played with the One-Ball Rule in effect. (Model Local Rule 8:G-4) - Starting in 2022 the Tidewater Tour will play the One Ball Rule.
  4. No Greens Books will be allowed during tournament play in 2022!
  5. Part of the entry fee goes towards the Final Season Prizes Per Flight based on the Final Point Standings after Kingsmill Local Final (1st: $500 ; 2nd: $300 ; 3rd: $200 ; 4th: $100).
  6. The Final Flight 8 or 16 Players will have a chance to compete in a Match Play Bracket following the Kingsmill Local Final. (Ex. 32 or less in Final Standings = Top 8, 33 or more in Final Standings = Top 16)
