2019-20 WAPT Winter Series Overview
“Houston We Have Lift-Off”
For the Fall/Winter of 2019-20, the WAPT will conduct a WAPT Winter Series throughout the Houston area. The Inaugural WAPT Winter Series opens October 14th/15th at the Riverbend Classic and will conclude January 13th/14th at the Walden Winter Open. Each tournament will be played on the same course as the APT’s Winter Series – Separate competitions!
The Winter Series is a great way to tune-up for the LPGA’s qualifying school or simply keep the game sharp during the winter months.
Events will be played Monday – Tuesday and/or Thursday – Friday. Each Series will have three (3) tournaments allowing players that travel to the Houston area, to play in 3 events over 9 days. There are no cuts* during the Winter Series, with the top 30% of the starting field receiving a check.
The Winter Series will pay a guaranteed minimum of $2,000 to each winner! Membership for the Winter Series is $295. Tournament entry fees for members will be $435, Guests $535 and Amateurs $350
Keep in mind this is an off-season program. So it’s a bit different than our summer events. All players will ride, we will use the courses range balls and players must pay for practice rounds. While we will have a host hotel per Series, there is no private housing for the Winter Series.
