Entry Fee Championship Entry Fee: On-Site Qualifying - $85 | Match Play Championship - $220
Format & Prizes
On-Site qualifying is 18 holes of stroke play. The number of qualifying spots is determined by the CGA after entries close, based on the size of the field. In the event of a tie for the last qualifying places, there will be a hole-by-hole playoff to determine the final qualifiers and the 1st and 2nd alternate if necessary.

Group Play is 64 players that are formed into 16 groups of 4 to begin the championship. Each player plays 3 rounds of match play against players in a group of 4, called Group Play. The winner of each match will receive 1 point. Ties matches after 18 holes results in each player receiving .5 points. In the event of a tie in the group after three rounds, the tied players will have a sudden death stroke play play-off to see who wins the group.

The 16 players with the most points from each group after 3 rounds will advance to the final 16 Championship Bracket, called Bracket Play. The 16 group winners will be seeded into a traditional 16-player bracket based on the group # they won, not based on their original seeds.

The champion receives a trophy, and merchandise and has their name engraved on the permanent championship trophy. Trophy and merchandise is awarded to the runner-up and stroke play qualifying medalist(s). Merchandise is awarded to players who advance to Bracket Play. Merchandise certificates are valid until December 31, 2022.
