Registration & Entry
The cost of this year’s Grand Final is £75. Invitations will be sent out after each Regional Final is concluded and the results are verified. The top 2 in each Regional Final will receive an invitation to the Grand Final, with all 3rd place finishers being placed on a reserve list.
For those who qualify for the Grand Final, you will have until 11.59 pm on the 4th August 2019 to enter the event. You will not be able to enter the event after this date and we will then begin inviting players from our reserve list to fill any spaces available.
Those that qualify for a reserve place will be contacted after all the Regional Finals have been concluded and the places have been calculated. The reserve list will be ordered based on proximity to the winner of their Regional Final and then by field size (largest field first). On the week commencing 5th August, we will determine whether there any spaces available and offer any places that are available to our reserve players. We will contact reserves up to the 21st August. If you haven’t been contacted by this point you will not be offered a space at the Grand Final.
In the event that a space becomes available on the 22nd – 23rd August, we may be able to offer the place to a Sibling of a player who is taking part in our Grand Final. If you have a junior who you wish to be placed on the sibling list, you must contact Wee Wonders and request for them to be added. They must also meet the following criteria:
- The junior must have played in one of this year’s Regional Final events and:
- The junior must have finished within 10 shots of the Regional Final winner
Our Sibling list will be ranked the same way as our reserve list, ordered based on proximity to the winner of their Regional Final and then by field size (largest field first).
As part of your Grand Final entry, each competitor is entitled to 1 practice round on Friday 23rd August only. Practice rounds are for competitors only. Please see below information on how to book your practice round tee time.
