The NEXT Golf Tour is not your average golf tour. It’s a professional golf series played indoors on Trackman simulators. This is real professional golf — real skills, real pressure, and real paychecks — played on some of the most demanding courses in Trackman’s expansive virtual course library. It’s a great way to keep your game sharp during the off-season while competing for money that matters.
Here are a few reasons why elite players should give the NEXT a closer look:
REAL MONEY: With a standard 1,000-player field, the total purse climbs to $200,000, including a guaranteed $30,000 for the winner. Two “elevated” events this season feature purses up to $250,000, with a $50,000 winner’s check!
REAL EASY TO JOIN: No tour cards, no qualifiers. Just pay the $130 entry fee and play your round at any participating Trackman simulator worldwide. Locating one of the thousands of Trackman simulators is a breeze — simply visit www.trackman.com/locator.
REAL EXPOSURE: Every player on the NEXT Golf Tour is a featured player. With live leaderboards providing a split-screen view of every shot on every hole, your family, friends, followers, and sponsors can finally see your golf, not just your score on a leaderboard.
TRULY OPEN: Players of any gender and any tour are welcome on the NEXT. Men and women compete straight-up from different tee boxes, with separate competitions for the Longest Drive side game.
While the NEXT Golf Tour may not offer the largest purses, it has the potential to transform careers, as shared by players like Sofie Kibsgaard, Rasmus Rosin, Leslie Cloots, and Nikke Tyry:
“Playing on the NEXT Golf Tour changed a lot for me. I not only won a significant amount of money, which allowed me to start the season with confidence, knowing that financial constraints wouldn’t hinder my pursuits. Additionally, winning against the guys was a cool experience that boosted my confidence, and NEXT played a crucial role in preparing me for the season in various ways.”
— Sofie Kibsgaard (Sweden), winner of Round 3 in Season 1(total earnings $23,313), went on to win Ladies European Tour Access Series in 2023
“I got the opportunity — thanks to the NEXT Golf Tour — to play a DP World Tour event. I’ve always dreamed about it, and it was amazing just to be there and see how all the pros train and compete… That’s something I will always take with me as a confidence booster going into tournaments in the Nordic League. I know that I can play good golf”
— Rasmus Rosin (Sweden), winner of NEXT Season 1 Order of Merit (total earnings $69,500)
“I think it’s a great opportunity to continue playing during the offseason. … It keeps you sharp and your routine and competitive juices flowing. It’s a different setting, but I think it’s great. During the first couple weeks back outside, I could definitely tell that my swing was in a good spot”.
— Leslie Cloots (Belgium), US Womens All Pro Tour player and coach
“The NEXT Golf Tour is great value for money if you play competitive golf as you don’t have any travel expenses and you play for big money. So, it was a no-brainer for me. … I won Round 4, I started believing in myself and then I played the season of my life outdoors. So, I’m very thankful for the NEXT Golf Tour because it’s something we really needed”.
— Nikke Tyry (Finland), winner of Round 4 in Season 1 (total earnings $20,918)
