About Us

In the fall of 2017, the Florida Elite Golf Tour kicked off its inaugural season.  Our goal was to create a high-level professional golf tour that the players at all levels would be excited to play. The FEGT will host tournaments at some of the best venues in central Florida, including Orange County National, The Golden Bear Club at Keene’s Pointe, and Celebration Golf Club.

The FEGT is dedicated to the touring professional. We will work hard to ensure that every event that the FEGT puts on, is ran with the utmost integrity and professionalism that every tour player expects. We will strive to maintain a tour quality atmosphere to ensure that we can exceed the expectations of every competitor.  With that, the FEGT will be guaranteeing a $5,000 first place prize for every event!  However, in our first season, the Tour Championship was able to have a $15,000 guarantee for first place!!
