NEO Futures Tour Testimonials
I honestly can’t say enough about this tour. It was a fantastic experience for my son Garrett, who at the time was heading into his second year of competitive golf. He had never played in tournaments prior to playing on the NEO Tour, but the two division system they put in place separates the players by both age and skill level and allows inexperienced players the opportunity to play tournament golf without the intimidation factor. This was great for his development heading into his sophomore season and gave him confidence that I’m not sure he would have gained elsewhere. This tour is well run, affordable and fun and I would recommend it for junior golfers of all ability levels. Looking forward to another great year!

NEO Futures Tour was perfect for my daughter. As part of the beginners it gave her a chance to experience tournament play and be on different courses. She gained so much experience!

Austin Davidson, my son, started playing varsity golf his freshman year of high school. Always doing well but maybe lacked the grit and determination and composure that comes with being a younger golfer. Last year was Austin's first year competing in the NEO Futures Tour and this program couldn't have helped him more going into his final senior year, showing him patience, structure/routine, and that practice makes perfect. Austin placed 2nd last year in the Futures Tour which I believe helped him to the path of winning WRC during his last year of high school. Everyone from the people who organize and run the events to the parents who are out there to watch their kids have always been so pleasant, kind, and helpful. I do believe this is a great organization and can't wait to see how everything goes this year!

We are looking forward to the 2022 NEO Futures Tour. The 2021 season was well ran and good competition for the kids without being as high stress as some of the bigger tournaments we have played in. Tour personal was very informative and involved with the kids and parents. It is a great summer tournament for local high school students to get to know the fellow golfers from other schools that they will be playing with/against for the next several years and gives them the opportunity to play courses that you will be competing on throughout their high school golf season. I found it very affordable compared to other Leagues and easy to register for. I would highly recommend especially for any local freshman/sophomore who is planning on playing varsity golf this coming year to give them the experience of competitive play in a lower stress environment.

I cannot say enough good things about the NEO Futures Tour. It has truly transformed my daughter Bella Lundi's golf game as even better it has helped her socially. She came into this program with only playing her high school seasons golf events. She decided to get into it since she retired from travel fastpitch softball to focus on golf. The ease of signing up and the quick responses from both Brian and Doug were fantastic. The tournaments are more than affordable compared to other tours.
Her first tournament she fell in love with it (even though it was about 35 degrees, lol). She bonded with all of the girls and still stays in contact with them today. There was no stress at all and it was all friendly competition.
The encouragement from both Doug and Brian drove her to want to be better and want to be the best she could be.
She formed an incredible bond and friendship with one of the girls, Sammy Turk, this drove both girls to be better and try to beat each other. It was and is truly a friendly rivalry that they both feed off of. They both got better and better each week with posting stuff on twitter to encourage each other. It was #TurkvLundi. Sammy definitely got the better of these but it continues to drive Bella. It drove her all summer to have a fantastic junior year at Mentor High only falling 3 strokes shy of making it to districts. She was named second team all star by the News-Herald. She cannot wait to continue the rivalry in this upcoming summer tour.
Bella has encouraged all the girls on her golf team to join as it greatly improves your game and gets a great start on the upcoming season. The bonus is the friendships!
She cannot wait to get back at it and improve her game and get to districts and hopefully states this upcoming year.
Thank you to Doug and Brian - without the both of you and the NEO Futures Tour she would not be where she is today as a golfer. We are so thankful we decided to join!

Brian and Doug did a wonderful job organizing the NEO Futures Tour. They created a very laid back atmosphere for everyone involved. The kids were great and I am looking forward to hosting this event again for the upcoming 2022 golf season.
