This development golf tour has been introduced by the Pakistan Golf Federation for the first time to support the second tier of golf professionals who are otherwise struggling in their golfing careers. To make life a little easier for them, the top 40 ranked golf professionals of Pakistan are not eligible to take part in these Development Tour Events and this gives an opportunity to the slightly less skilled ones who do not enjoy a high technical rating to emerge well in this category of competition and add to their livelihood earnings.

In this 1st PGF Golf Development Tour Championship, while the glorified one was M.Imran of Defence Raya, others who did well are Tahir Nasim(Gymkhana), Mudasir Iqbal(Karachi), Zahir Shah (Peshawar), M. Shahzad (Lahore Garrison) and M.Afzal (Okara).

All these five contenders are bunched together at the second position at a similar aggregate score of 228. Some others who came up with good scores are Shahid Haneef (Gymkhana) and Arshad Rasheed(Karachi).These two finished the three rounds competition at an aggregate score of 230.
