Competition format:

The competition will take place in three rounds in an individual stroke-play format, where the field will be cut after the second day of the Championship (36 holes).


Application of the cut: up to 72 players, including tied players, taking into account the proportion of players of each sex in the original starting field, with the Championship Committee deciding in case of doubt.

The exact application of the cut (number of players, gender ratio, etc.) may be modified by the Tournament Director at his discretion, but the exact description of the cut must be posted on the information board or entered into the GOLFiGO system by 12:00 on the practice day at the latest.

The Championship Committee decides (if circumstances allow) that in the case of a cut, players who have not made it to the finals can also play (out of competition) on the day of the final, but they can only start 30 minutes after the last flight.

Those who don't make the CUT and do not wish to play after the field on the 3rd round will receive an 18-hole green fee voucher to be used until 31 May 2025.

Nations Cup:

The Nations Cup category is open to players from all countries in groups of at least 3 and up to 4 players. Any number of teams from one country may enter. Evaluation will be based on the gross number of strokes by adding up the three rounds of the Championship. The 3 best scores of up to 4 players in each round will be taken into account. If a team doesn't have at least 3 valid results in a round, it will be disqualified.


Returning scorecard:

From 1 January 2024, online result validation will be mandatory at national federation championships and ranking tournaments and is strongly recommended for clubs at club competitions.

This means that all players will continue to have the RIGHT to decide whether to keep their scorecard online or on paper during the tournament. No official scorecards will be printed for these tournaments (however, anyone can bring any paper score-card to the course if they feel the need).


At the latest at the time of the scoring after the finish, at the latest ONE member of the flight MUST upload the results ONLINE to the GOLFiGO interface.  Of course, it is recommended that all players do this themselves during the race, stage by stage. After the scan/matching, the validation is done by everyone entering their email address and GOLFiGO password (this replaces the signature). Once the scorecard has been validated, the player can no longer change the recorded score.

In the event of a discrepancy between the entries of two players at any stage, the system will immediately send a red highlighted message to the players concerned and, in this case, the system will only allow the online scorecard to be validated after the discrepancy has been corrected.

If no one in a flight has a mobile phone after return, the results of that flight will be recorded by the Tournament Office or the club official on the spot, in which case the players must authenticate on the Tournament Office/club computer device.

It is recommended that the results be kept in the GOLFiGO online (scorecard) interface. Validation of results (scorecard signing) must be done through the GOLFiGO online system.

The use of a caddie is allowed.
