What is the Mitten Golf Tour?

The Mitten Golf Tour is Michigan’s first amateur golf tour dedicated to hosting two-person team events in fun formats at some of the state’s best public courses.  Sign up with a partner and try us out! 

Who can sign up for Mitten Golf Tour events?  Do I need a handicap to sign up and play?

All golfers are welcome to sign up for Mitten Golf Tour events (age 15 & older).  Golfers do not need a handicap to play.  The pairings for the 1st round of each event will be random.  After the 1st round, teams will be placed into flights for the 2nd round, where they will be paired with and compete with other teams that had similar 1st round scores.  The top few teams in each flight will earn gift cards and other prizes.  

Does it cost anything to join the Mitten Golf Tour?

No.  There are not annual membership fees.  Simply sign up with a playing partner for individual events.  If you do not have a partner to play with, please email david@mittengolftour.com and we will work to pair you up.

What is the format of the events?

The format for each tournament is listed on the Tournament Schedule page.  All events are two-person events – typically scrambles, shambles, best ball and other fun formats.  

What does the entry fee for each event include?

The entry fee for each tournament covers greens fees, cart fees, range balls and prizes – both for each tournament and year-end.  Some events include food as well!

What can I (we) win?

After the 1st round of each tournament, the field will be separated into flights.  The top few teams in each flight after the 2nd round will be awarded prizes in the form of gift certificates or gift cards.  Each tournament will also have optional skins games. 

Mitten Cup

Starting in 2019, there will be a season-long points list, where the top players will qualify for the year-end Battle for the Mitten – a fun Ryder Cup style event.
