Entry Fees
FantasyGolfTour.com will occasionally conduct contests following the PGA, LPGA, European Tour, Seniors Tour and not-yet-announced Tours. There are two options of play; Play for free and win vouchers which you can exchange for prizes as offered; pay an entry fee to play and win cash prizes. The entry fees and other cost associated with playing vary by contest. The cost to enter any contest, total purse, prize amounts and quantity of prizes will be announced and posted before the start of any contest.

Entry Deadline
The contest entry deadline will be posted on our site for each event, typically 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the event.

Prizes and Winnings
All events at FantasyGolfTour.com end when the last round of that particular contest is final. The FGT Leaderboard will display up to date standings in all contest. Preliminary (Non-Official) winnings are post shortly after the end of each contest. Official final winnings are posted and confirmed within 24 hours of the contest ending. Winnings posting can be found in the Clubhouse area of the website via the Contest Center. All winnings will be deposited into your FGT Virtual Account and can used to play additional contest in the future or they can be withdraw at any time. Prizes are not transferable, nor will substitutions be made.

Contest Settlement and Payment
We try to settle contests and run payments as quickly as possible, but must ensure we do so accurately. Most contests are settled shortly after the contest finishes. However, to settle we have to wait until all the player statistics have been reported by our third party stats provider. This lets us ensure that the final scores are complete. Please note there can sometimes be last minute changes. If there is difficulty obtaining official results or issues with scoring, the contest may be settled the following day. Winnings will be added to contestants' Virtual Account and will be available for withdrawal or entry into cash contest immediately.

Scoring Revisions
During the contests we receive live scoring from our stats provider. When a contest has ended they pass us a final scoring for the contest. After we receive and confirm the scores we then settle all entries. However, very rarely, the stats provider revises scores after the final score has been released. In the event of this occurring, FantasyGolfTour.com reserves the right to make changes as required to any previous results. In these cases the settlement process (including payment) may be reversed and contests resettled correctly.

Canceled, Shortened Tournaments and Player Withdrawals
If for any reason any of the applicable tournament events are cancelled due to players strike, acts of god, technical problems or other events beyond our control, FantasyGolfTour.com reserve the right to modify, extend or shorten that event. Any applicable tournaments officially called off due to weather with the purse distributed to players will be considered a valid event. An event must go 54 holes to be official. Canceled or non-official event entry fees will be refunded back to the accounts of the members entered.
