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.
Any other competition held in conjunction eg stableford event shall be played off normal daily handicap as displayed on the scorecard on the day.
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.
