Invitations (Championship Exempt) *see below for more details

  • Players meeting our exemption criteria will be invited to compete.
  • Players meeting exemption criteria will be accepted upon receipt of invitation/application.
  • Players meeting these criteria will be guaranteed acceptance unless more than 90 exempt players accept invitations to compete. If this occurs, players will be granted entry into the Championship based on their highest level of exemption status. (B1 precedes B2 so on and so forth).

Applications (Championship Non-Exempt)

  • Players not meeting exemption criteria may formally apply via application.
  • Players are encouraged to attach a playing resume along with their application. The resume along with various rankings will be used to determine the remaining players that are accepted.
  • All decisions are at the discretion of the Committee and all decisions are final.

At Close of Entries

  • Invitations and applications are received, and processed.  The field is determined based off of the number of exempt players and selecting the best non-exempt players to complete the 90 player field.
  • Girls Field Only – A wait-list will be created for those not accepted and those on the list will be notified by email of this position/order on the list.
  • Boys Field Only – Any applicant who does not make the initial 90 player field will have the opportunity to compete in an 18-hole qualifier. The number of available tournament spots will vary based on WD’s from the championship field. If the total number of applications does not warrant a qualifier, all remaining players will be placed on a wait-list.

Can I register exclusively for the qualifier? (Applicable to only Junior Boys)

If I’m exempt under several exemptions, which do I choose?

Select the highest ranking exemption, as the exemptions are ranked by priority. For example, exemption M10 is given priority over M11, so choosing exemption M10 would be correct.

I don’t see an exemption, which I was exempt under, that was available last year, did they change?

Senior: No, spouses/family may purchase a dinner ticket during registration (if you are exempt) or once you have been accepted into the field

Are practice rounds only for players?

How can I register for practice rounds?
