NLU Events 

Where the best golf content is consumed in real life!

 Getting to meet and make friends all over the world through the game of golf has been the highlight of this weird, wonderful No Laying Up experience for us, and it is our sincere hope that we can help facilitate such opportunity and occasion for others through our events.

About our Events


Events are open to anyone in our Global Community. Whether you’re new to golf or a life-long sicko, we encourage you to join us wherever you are in one of our many events across the globe. All backgrounds, genders and skill levels are encouraged and welcome! 

Open to all

Events are open to both Nest and non-Nest members. Nest members are the first to know and have first access to registration.

Fun, casual, competitive

We love a friendly competition! Each event will have some sort of competition tied to it, yet will ensure that golfers of all abilities have a great time.


We understand that not everyone likes the same things when it comes to golf tournaments. This is why we have created a variety of ways to #getinvolved. Every event will be a little bit different in style, format, price, and location.

Types of Events

Roost Organized Events

Captains of local Roosts (clubs) host events throughout the year for members of their club in their local area. These events are part of a Roosts competition series to identify the four members that will represent the club at the Regional Level. Each Roost will also hold one major that is open to the wider audience where players can also qualify for the NIT. Those events are listed as part of our wider event schedule.

NLU Organized Events

NLU hosted events are sanctioned by us, with competitive formats, and multiple NIT qualifying spots up for grabs. While you DO NOT have to be a Nest member to attend NLU hosted events, Nest members do get priority signing up.

Where our events live

The Refuge

The Refuge is No Laying Up's online message board and the core platform of the Nest community. It is a great place to start to meet avid golfers, learn about events, and discuss golf and mostly golf adjacent topics.  

The Nest

The Nest is No Laying Up's international community of avid golfers, and it's the easiest way to get involved in all of the events. By joining the Nest you will be eligible to compete in our two event series beyond the local level.

Our two event Championships

Nest Invitational Tournament

The Nest Invitational Tournament is our season-ending invitational where golfers have an opportunity to compete at a number of events throughout the year to qualify for 1 of 96 spots at the NIT. NIT qualifiers are open to all; however, golfers must be a Nest member to qualify.

Roost Club Championship

NLU has teamed up with Nest members from across the globe to create local clubs (Roosts). These local chapters give Nest (and non-Nest) members more opportunity to meet up and play golf in their local areas.

Our Roosts are organized into regions and are competing in a season long competition to crown one Roost the Club Champion title.
