Format The MGA Public Links Championship is a 36-hole stroke play event. In the event of a tie at the completion of play, the Championship will be decided by a sudden death playoff which will begin immediately at the conclusion of regular play. All players should keep informed as to the time and status of any playoff.

Please note: The MGA reserves the right to alter second round tee times and pairings.

The competition is open to male amateur golfers who reside in the MGA territory and do not have playing privileges at any course (e.g. a golf facility outside of the Met Area) at which the general public is excluded. A person who does not reside in the MGA territory, and who is not a full-time student or employed in the MGA territory, cannot join a club for the purpose of entering the MGA Public Links Championship.

All entrants must have an individual up-to-date Handicap Index based on ratings for men not exceeding 8.0 under the World Handicap System and are subject to the MGA Rules and Regulations.
