In operation since 1994, the APT, a subsidiary of K&G Sports LLC., partners with local non-profits to conduct professional golf tournaments in the mid-south region of the U.S. In addition to raising thousands of dollars each year for charity, these events provide an avenue for professional golfers to hone their skills while preparing for a life on the PGA Tour.
APT has successfully graduated players to the PGA Tour. They include PGA Tour winners Mark Hensby, J.L. Lewis, Tim Herron, Cameron Beckman, Bubba Watson, and Ryan Palmer more recently that have found success on the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour includes Scottie Scheffler, Hayden Buckley, Michael Arnaud, and 2021 Masters runner-up Will Zalatoris.
The APT currently conducts professional golf tournaments that are 72 holes with a cut after 36 holes with purses that regularly exceed $130,000. The APT gives players the unique opportunity to test their ability to play at the highest level golf has to offer. Memberships for the APT gives players who are serious about playing at the next level an avenue to do so, offering them deals all year long. APT events are located in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas.
The APT always strives to help out the communities and clubs that are willing to help with tournaments and volunteer work. Many tournaments help benefit the local area by helping feed those who need it or charities to help children in need. Tournaments such as Fore The Kids, Coke Dr. Pepper Open, United Way Charity Golf Classic, and the Bella Vista Charity Classic are just a few of the tournaments that will help the local communities in these areas for years to come.
