All players must be a financial member of the BDVGA and hold a current Golf Australia Handicap.
The BDVGA Championship will be a 36 hole Stroke event held over two days at courses with the
same or close to the same Slope Ratings.
Players shall complete the second round playing off the same daily handicap as the first round,
regardless of any change to slope or their AGU handicap in the intervening period.
The committee may then need to adjust the final score on the second scorecard to reflect
the correct handicap as applied in Round 1 for championship purposes.
Gradings for the three Grades will be set prior to the first Round and remain the same
for the second Round. Players can only win one placing prize for the championships.
Overall takes precedence of grade prizes, gross takes precedence over nett prizes
and winners take precedence over runners-up etc.
Players must ensure that all Gross Scores are correctly entered both numerically and
on the Score Scan Grid. A high gross score marked as a wash on the grid will negate
the stroke score and hence make the player ineligible for championship prizes.
Any other competition held in conjunction eg stableford event shall be played off
normal daily handicap as displayed on the scorecard on the day.
Those who win any of gross or nett prizes in the championships are not eligible
for the grade prizes on either of the championship days.ie one prize only
during the two weeks of the championship period.
A Matchplay event may be played after the championships
The top eight available players in each grade based on gross scores shall play off
to determine a winner in each Grade on the dates allocated by the Committee.
To accept a place in the Matchplay a person must indicate upfront that they are
available for all allocated Matchplay dates (QF, SF and Final) should they progress in the event.
The BDVGA Committee may make changes to these conditions of play, and any allocated
dates or courses at any time to cater for any unforeseen circumstances eg weather, course unavailability etc.
