HOW IT WORKS

Club BGA will host a minimum of 10 events per calendar year to provide golfers with enough opportunity to enter the race series.

Most (if not all) Race to Mission Hills qualifying event will be run using the Stableford scoring system (may be changed at the discretion of Club BGA organisers) using ‘LIVE SCORING’ using the ‘GOLF GENIUS’ software platform and physical cards as a sign off. Scores must be done in pairs at minimum and groups/playing partners will be assigned by Club BGA organisers with a view on fairness.

Each event will attract a points value from 1st through to 20th in fields under 40 and 1st through to 30th in fields of 60 or more player. Each participant will also attract a minimum participation points value. At minimum the Top 5 placing points will always be the same.

Over the year, participants points values will accumulate until they have played in three events. Should a player participate in more than three events, the participants best three scores will be used. Should you be awarded points for placing in the race series event, these points will be provided to you in place of your participation points value. The place getters points value will always be greater than the participation points.

BGA will continually host a ladder for the Race to Mission Hills on our website which will allow all participants to check their scores.
 

QUALIFYING

To qualify for the ‘FINAL’, all entrants must participate in a minimum of three Race to Mission Hills events if they have played competitive golf before or 5 if the Race to Mission Hills is your first competitive event using your GolfLink Handicap number. Any participant can play more and is encouraged to do so to improve their chance to win however only their top 3 points will be used to total their score.

To qualify for the FINAL, the participant must be a Club BGA Member.

At the end of the calendar year qualifying events, the top 25 ranked players will be invited to play in the ‘FINAL’. The ‘FINAL’ will be a stroke play event where the winner on the day will win the major prize with prizes available to other place getters.

The top 5 ranked qualifiers will enter the ‘FINAL’ free of charge and will be given an advantaged starting position in support or the annual success achieved as per below;
1st Place – 5 Strokes                        2nd Place – 4 Strokes                       3rd Place – 3 Strokes       
4th Place – 2 Strokes                        5th Place – 1 Strokes                        Rest of Field – 0

THE FINAL

The final will be a celebration of golf and the year and will be played as a Stroke event with a double par + scoring system for the top 25 qualifiers. We will also host a 2-man Ambrose event for the rest of the field, to all be a part of the FINAL. The event will be held in December 2020 or January 2021 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
