More information coming
These rules are provided for information only and the official rules will be released soon.
Rules: The event will be governed by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews (R&A) Rules except as modified herein. Events are men’s and women’s singles, and doubles (pairs) teams. Teams may be mixed gender, no age groups.
Format: In the individual event, golfers will compete in an 18-hole Stableford format individual tournament by six handicap bands. The handicap bands will be determined after the close of registration and will be set to approximately include an equal number of golfers in each band.
The individual event will be a shotgun start. Men will use the green tees, women will use the white tees.
Ties will be resolved by a card countback starting with the back 9, back 6, back 3, and the last hole in that order.
For the team event, two players from the same country may nominate for the team event; there is no limit on the number of teams from a country. The team competition will be in the Ambrose format, also called accelerated team—it is not age specific and will be conducted as an open event with men, mixed or women’s combinations eligible. At least six drives of each player must be used and recorded on the card. The handicaps of both players will be totalled and divided by two to achieve the team handicap. The event will be conducted in four evenly divided handicap bands with medals accordingly.
Note that new international handicap rules (World Handicap System) are now in effect. The maximum allowed handicap is 28 for men and 36 for women.
An international handicap must be submitted—there will be no exceptions. To be acceptable, the certification must be during the previous three months and must be from a recognized authority. The WTGF reserves the right to refuse any certification for any reason at its sole discretion.
Players are to provide own clubs. Please bring your own refillable water bottle.
