The Roanoke Valley Senior Golf Tour was organized in 2003 as a competitive venue for senior golfers, 55 and older, in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding area. Our season schedule consists of nine tournaments hosted at courses in Roanoke, Lynchburg, Blacksburg, and the New River Valley. The scheduled courses typically change every year.
Tournaments are played from the Senior Tees (5200-5600 yards), and Forward Tees (4500-4800), if qualified. Event Handicaps are computed for the specific course and tees, and the field is flighted into three divisions to permit competition among players with similar handicaps. Five net awards are presented in each division with the lowest net division winner being declared the Overall Low Net Winner for the tournament. We also recognize Overall Tournament Low Gross, and we offer an optional Medalist Division competing with gross scores only from the Senior Tees.
We use a modified USGA/WHS handicap system. Only RVSGT rounds are used to compute these handicaps. For complete details, please refer to the HANDICAP INFO page on this website.
The Tour also offers Year End Awards, and recognizes an Overall Tour Champion for the season based on points. Points are awarded based on finish position for each tournament. At the end of the season, the Top 20 points leaders receive year end awards. Only your best 8 tournaments will be counted for year end awards, meaning you can miss a tournament and still do well for the season. Mike Barnhill of Roanoke, VA won the Overall Points Championship for 2022. Van Renick of Roanoke, VA was the Tour Medalist Champion for the year.
