Roanoke Valley Senior Golf Tour


The Roanoke Valley Senior Golf Tour is accepting applications for the 2024 season. You must turn age 55 on or before May 13, 2024. Tour membership will be capped at 120 regulars, plus up to 8 Alternates. Last year's members will have until March 15th to renew memberships.  If there is no change from 2023 information you can just mail Joe Bass  your check, otherwise go ahead and submit an application form with your updates. 

New Member Applications will be placed in available Tour slots on March 16th in the order of receipt, so submit your application early. We normally accept 15-20 new members each year. If regular Tour slots are not available, applicants may be offered an Alternate slot on the Tour. Please review complete information about the 
Alternate Program before submitting your application. The Alternate Program should also be considered by someone who intends to play only a few tournaments. If this is your interest, check the "Alternate Slot" box on your application (located next to "New Member").

The Roanoke Valley Senior Golf Tour is a competitive association which requires players to adhere to the RVSGT Rules of Play.  These rules parallel the rules of the USGA, the main exception being that we allow players to lift, clean and place their ball in their own fairway.  You play the ball as it lies elsewhere on the course, unless a specific USGA rule, or RVSGT local rule provides relief. Failure to comply fully with these rules will subject players to possible disciplinary action by the committee, including tournament penalties, disqualification, or suspension from the Tour.  Please click on the links below to review the Rules and Handicapping procedures before submitting your application.

The Application has a check box to participate in the optional Virtual Medalist Division, which competes using Gross Scores only. Participation in this division has no impact on participation in the regular net score based Tour.  Please read the information on the MEDALIST DIVISION  page before checking this box.  An additional $60 fee will apply.

The Application also has a check box for eligible members to play Forward Tees, which average 600 yards shorter than the standard senior tees.
This option is open to members 75 and over (as of 7/29/24), and to members 70 and over (as of 7/29/24) whose Age + Rounded Handicap Index is 90 or higher.  This  70+Hdcp option is not available (for the current season) to new members not having a verifiable VSGA/USGA handicap index. This Forward Tee selection applies to the entire 2024 season. The player's Event Handicap is appropriately adjusted to play this tee, usually 3 to 5 strokes depending on the course.


The 2024 Application is available in two formats -  PDF or DOC (These might show up at the top or bottom of your webpage to Open or Save.)  If you have problems, email and request an application in a format you prefer.
