The Gecko Tour is back again for its 8th year with a fabulous schedule and more affordable structure for our developing players.  This season we will host 20 events, 6 of which will be a 3 day event, and 14 tournaments over 2 days.  It remains staunchly committed & faithful to its founding philosophy of providing an affordable and highly competitive tournament experience, hosted on top courses, to elite amateurs and professional players from across Europe and worldwide during the winter months.

We would like to proudly announce that the 2005 US Open Champion Michael Campbell as our Tour Ambassador. Michael is a firm believer in our ethos and shares our vision of providing a cost effective environment for young players to springboard their careers. We will be working very closely with Michael with a sole aim of enhancing our product further and to provide additional benefits and incentives to our players. We are also delighted to have the support of Villa Padierna this season where they are providing Gecko with the opportunity to play 7 of our events on 3 of their magnificent golf courses.

Other exciting and new developments this season, in addition to our invites to other tours, we are awaiting confirmation that 5 of our 3 day events will be accredited with WAGR points. These events will be in collaboration with the Real Federacion Andaluza de Golf and hosted by the magnificent Villa Padierna Golf Club.

We are changing our model in response to the need to provide a truly developmental golf product and a player pathway, we have therefore taken the decision to dramatically reduce the cost of tournament entry. 

The Gecko Tour will still ensure a superior tournament experience for our players with Live Scoring via GolfBox together with a Tournament referee, dedicated knowledgeable staff and professional photos and film that you can use for your own personal use to help develop your golfing CV.

We look forward to helping you develop your golf career in Andalucia!
