EMPLOYMENT

Since its foundation in 1994, the All Pro Tour has served as the proving ground for aspiring Tour Professionals making their way to the PGA Tour. The APT is the premier tour for a professional to hone their craft, whether they are a recent college grad or a seasoned veteran. Many stars of the PGA Tour started their professional career on the APT, such as Ryan Palmer, Bubba Watson, Bryce Garnett, Kramer Hickok, Will Zalatoris, and 2022 PGA Player of the Year, Scottie Scheffler!

All APT events emulate a PGA Tour week by providing practice rounds for players, hosting various parties, conducting fun clinics and events for the locals, and operating large-scale pro-ams as well as conducting a highly competitive 72-hole professional golf tournament! Each week, our local partners and sponsors bring their own touch to each event, meaning every stop on the APT is unique, producing unforgettable experiences for our players and the Tour.

If you aspire to work in the professional golf world, there is no place better to learn and grow while having an amazing time doing it! The goal of the APT is not only to provide aspiring Tour professionals a place to develop the skills they need, we also aim to prepare our own staff for the next steps in their careers. From PGA Sections to the PGA itself, our graduates have used the knowledge they gained working for the APT to accelerate them to reaching their dream jobs! 

The sky is truly the limit here at the APT because we genuinely value our interns and what they bring to our organization. Beyond teaching how to conduct a professional level golf tournament, we encourage new ideas and give interns the freedom to take on as much responsibility as they prove they can handle.
