The Gecko Tour 2020/21 “COVID” UPDATE
The Gecko Tour Ownership have waited patiently for so long for clarity in these incredible and unprecedented Covid 19 times. Clarity and guarantees are seemingly impossible at this time, one only has to follow the news and the constant change in world wide Country by Country methods of dealing with this terrible virus.
We had always hoped to arrange a shortened version of the Tour in January, February and early March. Unfortunately, the reality of the situation prevents us from committing to even a limited schedule.
The Gecko Tour are a family of well intentioned, hard working people that care deeply about providing the best platform for young people to develop and launch their golfing careers.
Our thoughts and commitment is and has always been firstly to our valued players. We attract players from all over the world and we feel it is morally reprehensible to organize a Tour schedule and ask you to arrange flights, accommodation, car hire etc etc., only to risk potential travel restrictions and the pandemic situation in general preventing us fulfilling our duty to you all.
It is therefore, with great regret and personal sadness that we must postpone this seasons Gecko Tour and return stronger next autumn with the longest running fully scheduled winter Tour.
Stay safe and well. We look forward to seeing you on the other side

Dear Ken and Katie,
I just wanted to send you both a quick message to say thank you for last weeks event.
Very best wishes Finchy
Dear Ken and the Gecko Tour Team,
On behalf of myself, Mark Healy, Greg O’Mahony and Eric Rumley we would like to sincerely thank you for running the Gecko tour event in Villa Padierna Golf Club – Los Flamingos course from the 25th – 27th of February.
It was our first Gecko tour event and we had an extremely enjoyable experience. The course was fantastic and the tournament was run very professionally.
Unfortunately, we were not able to make the final in Villa Padierna – Alferini course due to other commitments. We would have love to have played!
Looking forward to playing some more Gecko Tour events in 2020.
As my last tournament of this years gecko tour would have been in alcaidesa links, I wasn’t able to tell you this in person.
I still want to thank you for what you are doing with this tour! The gecko tour is probably the player-friendliest environment I have ever experienced. It is easy to see that you care a lot about the players and you want to make it as simple as possible for them.
For me especially as an amateur playing these pro-events it’s not common to be treated this way.
I’m certainly gonna come back next year!
Keep up the good work!
Thanks again to you and Ken for all your work this fall, I had a great time and I know my roommates Jamie Dick and Michael Dart did too! Took your recommendation to surf in Tarifa and got some Christmas shopping done in old town Mijas up the mountain before returning to Canada and sure glad we did!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Great team..continued success and see you all Next year..
Thank you very much! Also thank you so much for organizing such a great week! Both Danny and myself really enjoyed the week and appreciate all the work that you and your team do for us the players! Without you guys there wouldn’t be anything like this to play in! You run great events and I’m positive that you will do very well with the tour as you run it very well indeed!
Thanks again and I hope to be able to come out and play a few more events next year!
Happy Christmas and new year to you Ken and all the team!
Keep it up!
