Handicap verification

In partners­­­hip with GOLFLink (Australia) and International Golf Associations the tournament committee will review the 6 month playing history of all entrants. The tournament committee reserves the right to amend player handicaps. 

The ‘slope handicap system’ will be utilised to calculate player handicaps for the Championship rounds. Under the slope system, the difficulty of the golf course and the tee blocks played from determine a player’s handicap prior to the start of each round.

 

Pace of play

For the enjoyment of all players, field sizes will be limited and experienced marshals will monitor pace of play. Tips to improve speed of play and the penalties for slow play will be provided to all players.
