Directions to Sawgrass:  Both golf courses are situated at TPC Sawgrass, approximately a 5-minute drive from the hotel if you have your own vehicle.

Format and Handicaps

Format: The scoring format each day will be individual Stableford.

 

Handicaps: Playing Handicap will be set at 95% of Course Handicap. The maximum Playing Handicaps are 24 for men and 30 for ladies. If your handicap exceeds these limits, you can still play, but for competition purposes, you’ll play off these limits.

 

All five rounds will be run under the World Handicap System (WHS). Scores will not automatically be forwarded to England Golf.  Participants MUST return their daily scores to their golf club. The easiest way to do this is to forward the email from Golf Genius, which will be received after each round, and provides details of your scores.

 

GAGT Overseas Handicap System (OHA):  Handicaps will be adjusted after each round in line with the GAGT OHA system. The GAGT OHA system is based on the CONGU handicap system prior to the introduction of WHS. Adjustments made by the GAGT OHA system will not affect your club Handicap Index.

The GAGT OHA system takes precedence over adjustments made by a player’s home club to ensure consistency. Details of the GAGT OHA system can be provided upon request.

Daily Draw:  The draw for the first two rounds will be available on the website a week before the event.

Draws for the last two rounds will be made in score order.

In the fourth round, the leaders will go out first.

In the last round, the leaders will go out last.

 

Participants can use the message facility in their Locker/Account for requests such as playing partners and early or late tee times in round 1, 2 and 3. The organisers will do their best to accommodate these requests.

Testimonials

“Brilliant courses, awesome weather, great people, wonderful hospitality – USA at its finest!! I will be back.” - Rob Salisbury

 

“Without doubt one of the top venues we play on GAG tour. Courses and practice facilities are amongst the best we can play. This was my 5th visit and would happily play the Stadium course every day, all day. Look forward to the next visit!” - Bill Ferguson

 

“The Stadium Course at Sawgrass is so iconic - perhaps second only to Augusta - that no matter where else you’ve played, you’ll get goosebumps playing 16-18.  The fun (or panic!) of trying to hit the 17th is second to none.  However, the rest of the course is equally as good, requiring you to think your way round and play great shots - there aren’t that many places to miss!  Dye’s Valley is also sneaky good and a welcome change of pace.” - Adam Uttley
