        Play as few or as many as you like. You'll want to place well in several events if you want to compete in the Order of Merit (season points competition).

        I play in 5 - 8 events throughout the season. I haven't fared well in the Order of Merit but I have placed in some (2nd, 4th X 2). There is a skins competition at every event. $20 to enter but you don't have to play.

          Hi CowboyBoots,

          Thanks for your interest in joining us on Tour! As PingGuy suggested, there is no minimum number of events. All you need is a verified GAO handicap in order to be assigned to the correct flight. If you are not currently a member of the GAO, please let us know, and we would be happy to help you in getting setup with a valid handicap.

          If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

              If you are interested in joining the Tour, send Mark Young an email: mark@gtaamtour.com. He can also set you up with a GAO account to start entering scores for your Handicap Factor.

              If you are interested in getting a Handicap Factor, but not interested in joining the Tour, you can do so here: www.gao.ca

                    I've been curious about this since last year... I play for fun and have a 28 or 29 handicap... I wouldn't mind trying this tower other golfers and learn more but I'm also not 100% familiar with all the detailed rules and I think that scares me more than anything about joining... Are the playing partners pretty good at helping out with rules?

                      I wouldn't let that intimidate you. The other golfers in your group will definitely help you out if you need some clarification. There are also rules officials on the course to point you in the right direction should an issue come up that nobody in your group is sure of.

                          Consider also the Recreational Flight as an alternative if score keeping or competition isn't what you are (as) focused on.

                          I am using the Tour this year as a means to play some splendid courses I may not otherwise have access to. First up was Coppinwood; next for me is Scarboro. I am in the Recreational Flight.

                          Just as when I joined GTA Golf Club a number of years ago to get a roadmap to reasonable courses when I first took up golf, I am using the Tour as one for some pretty magnificent venues.

                          I would be more likely to say that, for me, Coppinwood was a fairly easy walk, but having just now played it the first time yesterday it may in fact be easier once more familiar with the shortcut paths to take for your particular tee box

                          Certainly a delightful walk.

                          (And walking Muskoka Bay at all let alone in such heat is impressive!)

                            Or nuts!

                            Yes, the cut paths are really nice at Coppinwood. You're right: I should adjust my criteria on the walking scores as I don't mind what some might.

                            Glad you enjoyed yourself yesterday.
