Participants will be in two flights based on total combined team handicap. Age/gender will not be factored in flighting, but will determine your tee box. No pair together requests will be accepted for this event.
All participants are required to maintain a GHIN/WHS approved handicap to be eligible to win net prizes and skins. If you need a handicap, you may request one for free from the tournament committee by calling 1-800-506-8264.
All participants will utilize their low handicap index for competition. Handicaps are subject to review for accuracy and may be adjusted or deemed ineligible for prizing at any time for any reason, including for exceptional scores, by the tournament committee without refund of entry fee.
At Golf Tourism Solutions, we operate multiple handicap events throughout the calendar year. In order to better serve our participants, we have developed and deployed a Tournament Points System for each event that helps our team better monitor handicapping year to year for those that consistently finish at or near the top of the leaderboard.
- First place = 5 points
- Second Place = 4 points
- Third Place = 3 points
- Fourth Place = 2 points
- Fifth place = 1 point
This system takes into account an individuals top performances across the previous two years of the event using a cumulative points system. Once their TPS point total for the event reaches a certain level over the two year period for the event, the TPS reduction is then applied to the tournament index for that participant. The levels of reduction are detailed below.
- 10 total points is a 3 stroke reduction
- 8 total points is a 2 stroke reduction
- 6 total points is a 1 stroke reduction
Golf Tourism Solutions events included in this Tournament Points System are the following: Myrtle Beach World Amateur, World Amateur Q School, Short Par 4 Fall Classic, GolfBuddy Veterans Classic, Brittain Resorts Classic, Golf Trek Challenge, and Saintnine Couples Challenge
*Tournament Points System subject to change at any time.
Handicap deadline days are important to remember! The tournament committee will request your handicap information on August 16th and requests it be returned no later than August 19th. Failure to comply can result in being deemed ineligible for prizes. Furthermore, it is recommended all participants have a WHS handicap established as soon as possible if not already attained upon registration.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 in each flight in the form of a trophy and gift card to Saintnine.
- 1st place – Trophy and $200 gift card per player
- 2nd place – Trophy and $100 gift card per player
- 3rd place – Trophy and $50 gift card per player
In addition there will be on-course contests like Closest to the Pin (4 per day) and Long Drive (2 per day) which winners will receive a GolfBuddy Atom rangefinder. In addition, randomly drawn prizes will be available!
