What is the PGA BOOM Tour?
The PGA BOOM (Bring On Our Movement) Tour is a golf league on wheels. As golf has seen a movement towards a more inclusive and diverse audience the Connecticut Section PGA wants to provide an avenue for these golfers to travel to different golf courses and enjoy the game.
Who is it for?
Male and Female
Open to anyone age 19 or older with a primary focus on golfers in their 20s and 30s.
Our players range widely in experience and ability. When you sign up you will be asked to assess your experience so we can try to pair you with similar players.
What about format for play?
Our goal is to make the day as casual and enjoyable as possible. Formats will be communicated prior to the day and include best-ball, scramble and shamble formats. Scores will be entered via the Blue Golf app which will provide live leaderboards for the day.
When will events take place?
A majority of events will take place during weekdays with tee times beginning at approximately 3:30 PM. There will also be a handful of weekend opportunities as well. Events will be a combination of 9-holes with a few designated 18-hole event days mixed into the schedule.
How much will it cost?
There will be a $95 membership fee. Members gain access to our events held at both public and private courses. A complimentary USGA/GHIN Handicap number is included as well as event benefits such as shop credit vouchers, exclusive happy hour deals, and access to PGA Professionals.
Most importantly, members can share in the social aspect of the events and be paired with people who share in their passion for golf.
Each event will be priced differently based on each course’s event fees.
