King's Dunes
Entries close Wednesday, August 21, 2013

 

A new championship for the 2013 schedule, the Women's Mid-Amateur Championship was added due to the popularity of the Women's Amateur and Women's Senior Championships.  The Women's Mid-Amateur Championship provides players 25 years and older a Championship environment without having to compete with juniors and collegiate players.  Catering to a wide range of skill levels, the Championship will offer each individual the opportunity to select one of three yardages from which to play. 

Eligibility

Must be a female amateur member of the FSGA and have reached 25 of age by May 4, 2013.

Handicap Limit

Must have a Florida USGA GHIN Handicap no higher than 34.0.  The valid Florida GHIN Handicap Indexes used will be from the May 1, 2013 revision.

Divisions

There are three divisions for player's to choose to compete in:

Championship Division - Approx. 5,900 yards (Gross Only)
Middle Division - Approx. 5,500 yards (Gross & Net)
Forward Division - Approx. 5,000 yards (Gross & Net)

Entry Fee

$160
*Entry fee includes competition rounds and cart fees, tee gift, and awards luncheon immediately following play after the final round, September 8th. Late entries will be accepted subject to a $10 late entry fee should the entrant gain acceptance into the field.

Championship Format

36 holes of individual stroke play. 

The Championship Division will play at approximately 5,900 yards; the Middle Division will play at approximately 5,400 yards; and the Forward Division will play at approximately 5,000 yards.  The Championship Division will compete for gross prizes only, and the Middle and Forward Divisions will compete for both gross and net prizes.  

The Championship Division may be flighted after the first round.  Generally, divisions of more than 10 players will be flighted, however the Committee reserves the right to flight based on the number of competitors and/or the range of scores.  The Silver and Bronze Divisions will be pre-flighted based on individual handicaps as of the September 1, 2013 revision.  Generally, divisions of more than 10 players will be flighted, however the Committee reserves the right to flight based on the number of competitors and/or the range of combined team handicaps.

The overall Women’s Mid-Amateur Champion will be the player from the Championship Division with the lowest 36-hole total score.  In the event of a tie for first place in the Championship Division there will be a hole-by-hole sudden death playoff on a hole designated by the Committee to determine the champion.  Ties for first place gross and first place net in each flight in both the Middle and Forward Divisions will be broken by the USGA tie break method.  The final day 18 hole respective score, whether gross or net, will be used to determine the first place gross or net player.  If there is still a tie, the final 9 holes of the last day (holes #10-18) will be used to determine the winner.  If there is still a tie, the final 6 holes will be used, and then the final 3 if there is still a tie.
