The SwingThought TOUR is proud to announce that the 2017 National Series will kickoff at Southern Hills Plantation, home to the Monday Qualifier for the PGA Tour’s Valspar Championship.
Southern Hills Plantation, a Pete Dye design, is set to host the SwingThought TOUR February 7th-10th, 3 weeks prior to the scheduled Monday Qualifier for the Valspar Championship. This will be the third consecutive year Southern Hills Plantation has been the host site for Monday Qualifying.
Registration is now available for this event. Space is limited due to the time of year, location, and the golf course so take advantage of this great opportunity.
Following the season opening event at Southern Hills, the SwingThought TOUR will host events at The Golf Club at Fleming Island ( February 20th-26th) and The Country Club of Orange Park ( March 6th-11th). These events are the first of more than 14 planned for the 2017 SwingThought TOUR National Series.

More information will be available on this soon.
