Amateur Players Tour ready to hit Seattle area

Updated: September 30, 2021

The Amateur Players Tour is hosting its first tournament in the Seattle area on Oct. 23 at Washington National Golf Club in Auburn. The Amateur Players Tour is another great way to keep those competitive juices flowing on the golf course now that the fall golf season has arrived. 

The Amateur Players Tour (APT) is a members-only tour consisting of local chapters throughout the United States and Canada for men and women of all ages and skill levels. The tournaments will be played on public and private golf courses and the formats will change up along the way with match play, Stableford, team events, member-guest events and more. The focus will always be on fun and friendly competition at each of the tour stops during the season. 

The Seattle chapter’s inaugural tournament at Washington National on Oct. 23 is a way for chapter owner Warren Ottley ( to kick off the season. He wants to introduce himself and get to know the players in the Seattle area while making plans for the upcoming season. As a tour that is by the players and for the players, Warren is hoping to gain insight into what the golfers would like to experience with APT Seattle.

The APT was created to improve upon the repetitive stroke play experience common among various amateur golf groups and Seattle will utilize different formats to change things up. The local chapters are the heart and soul of the APT with a healthy schedule of tournaments across the country with competitive entry fees at courses that the public might not ordinarily be able to play.  

The inaugural North American Championship will be held Oct. 25-27, 2021, at Pinehurst Golf Resort in North Carolina. Members from all over the country will play in a 54-hole stroke play tournament to crown the North American Champion and National Player of the Year. Tournament rounds will be played on Pinehurst #1, #6, #8, #9 and Talamore Resort. Upon completion of the 2nd round, the top 20 and ties from each Division will advance to play their final round on the historic Pinehurst No. 2. 

All golf fanatics who can’t get enough of the game, its history, its architecture, and its spirit are invited to reach out to Warren or visit
