If you are an active-duty service member or Veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, your chances of advancing to the Topgolf Tour Championship just got a whole lot better!
Not only can you advance by winning a Regional Tournament, but if you are the highest-scoring military team in Round 1 across all Regional Tournaments (excluding Las Vegas and the UK), you will earn a spot at the Topgolf Tour Championship to compete for the glory of best Topgolf team and $50,000.
But it doesn't stop there! The highest scoring team from the military division will also earn spots at the 2018 Veteran Golfers Association Championship at Olympic Club in San Francisco, CA.
Teams will be automatically entered into the Military Division, based on their qualifying status. The highest-scoring military team will be announced after the Topgolf Tour Regional Tournament at Austin, TX, on Sept. 23. Teams can keep track of scores through the Military Division Leaderboard, which will be updated throughout Regional play.

In support of the Veteran Golfers Association
By competing in the Topgolf Tour, you will help enrich the lives of veterans and their family members through the game of golf. Topgolf will donate $5 from every player registration fee to the Veteran Golfers Association. Upon registration, Tour players will have the opportunity to make an additional donation.
Every year, the VGA hosts more than 250 local tournaments for thousands of VGA members across the country, culminating in a VGA National Championship. The VGA develops programs that allow members to compete, socialize and remain physically active through the game of golf. Through local league play, regional tournaments and national qualifiers, the VGA helps reinforce values like integrity, respect and perseverance through golf. Additionally, the VGA offers family oriented activities that help veterans and their family members increase the amount of quality time spent together and be more active in their communities.
