Welcome to our golf tour

This website is intended to be a focal point for “our golf tour”. The majority of the players who participate are from the Brampton Golf Club in Cumbria, UK. Every other year a tour group has headed overseas to test their skills on tough demanding golf courses. Initially that saw us heading to Sarasota on the Florida Gulf Coast but in 2013 a small group headed to Belek, Turkey after hearing many good reports of exceptional courses and excellent hospitality. This was certainly the case and another party of 8 are heading back in October 2019.

Here on the website you can peruse past tours to see who did what and where, find links to take you to the websites of the courses we play, keep up to date with information relating to the next tour and once play commences daily updates will be posted.

The 2019 Tour Champion David Farrer

The 2019 Leaderboard

With a brilliant defence David is again the tour champion. Congratulations well deserved with a week of consistent high quality golf that had him playing off  his club handicap of 3 only on the first day and at one point +1. In tour terms “nobody but nobody….” 

Steve again played excellent golf overseas and despite sustaining a severe wack on the elbow from a stray Proud ball on the last day finished runner up. Lionel 3rd was always in contention, right down to the final hole, despite the sever tour handicap system having him off +3 on occasions. 

The 2019 Floodlight Challenge

11th October to 18th October 2019

The venue for the 2019 Tour is again the Belek region in Turkey. This is the fourth time the tour has visited Belek after more than a decade of tours to the Gulf Coast of Florida. 8 golfers will take on the challenge over 5 rounds for the 2019 title. In addition there is a 9 hole challenge under the floodlights.

Transportation

After the failure of Thomas Cook our perfect direct flights were no more. Sunny and the team Bilyana managed, after a lot of searching and creative thinking, to find alternatives that while far from ideal will allow the tour to still go ahead!
