A player may enter from one club only, but need not play with the same partner in attempting to qualify. The qualifying partnership must not change once a pair has qualified for the regional or national finals. Players whose exact handicaps drop below 14.5 or exceed 40 are still eligible to qualify on a card marked whilst their handicap was between 15 and 40.

    4. Any ties are to be decided on the last 9, 6, 3 or 1 hole(s), and after that on the first 9, 6, 3 or 1 hole(s)

    7. Clubs are requested to hold at least one qualifying competition for their members but there is no limit to the number of cards which can be entered.

Entries to each regional final must be received by the regional organiser by the specific date stated for each regional event.
    8. A maximum field of 64 pairs may play in a regional final. If oversubscribed, there will be a waiting list. Players are to play in their own regional final and may not switch to another venue. The winning pair from each regional final shall qualify for the national final, to be held during GOLF WEEK on THURSDAY 15 AUGUST 2019 at WOODHALL SPA GOLF CLUB.
    9. If a club’s representatives have to withdraw from a regional final, they must inform the regional organiser as soon as possible. Provided there is no waiting list for places in the regional final, a club may substitute its winners with the next best placed pair.
