Qualifying Information

Format: All players who are not exempt must participate in an 18-hole qualifier. Qualifying round starting times, pairings and additional information, including practice rounds, will be posted in the Qualifying Schedule table, above, by April 1st.

What’s Included: The qualifying entry fee includes the qualifying round green fee, and usage of the practice facilities. Players will have the ability to one (1) practice round at a reduced rate. See site specific Player Information for more details.

TGA Cart Policy: Included in the entry fees, all players have access to ride in a shared cart during their qualifying round. Players may walk or ride during TGA qualifying rounds. While a caddie is not prohibited from riding in a cart in Texas Amateur Qualifying, the TGA has adopted a ‘one-seat’ policy. The player can ride in or move a golf cart with another player’s caddie in it, so long as the player whose caddie is in the cart is not riding in another cart at the same time. As a reminder, players are responsible for the actions of their caddie.

Transferring Qualifying Site: Changing a qualifying site is permissible, only before the tournament entry deadline. Or, if a player is entered in a Texas Amateur qualifier and the entry deadline has passed and circumstances arise that would cause him to miss his assigned qualifier, he may follow the “Walk Up Procedure”, outlined in the Men’s Polices & Procedures, at another qualifier.

Walk-Up Procedure for Qualifying Rounds: If a player is entered in a Texas Amateur qualifier and the entry deadline has passed and circumstances arise that would cause him to miss his assigned qualifier, he may follow the “Walk Up Procedure”, outlined in the Men’s Polices & Procedures, at another qualifier. Any walk up player at a qualifying site will be drawn by lot to replace players in the field that fail to show up at their designated starting time.

To be a part of the Walk-Up procedure you must be registered at another qualifying site. Players wishing to Walk-Up are required to check in with the TGA official at the 1st tee 30 minutes prior to the start of the qualifying round. Players attempting to transfer qualifying sites who are late to check in will be placed at the bottom of the Walk-Up list. Once play begins, if a player who is in the starting field fails to show up at the tee at the designated time, an alternate player will be called. If the player does not show within five minutes, the alternate player’s ball will be in play.

Qualifying Places: The number of qualifying spots allocated to each site will be determined by the TGA after the entry deadline has closed and all eligible entries are confirmed. This number of spots available is based on the field size at each site. Each qualifying site will have a predetermined field limit and may fill up. Each qualifying site must have at least 5 players or it will be canceled. If the requested qualifying site is full or cancelled, applicants will be reassigned by the TGA to the nearest qualifying site available. If reassignment is unacceptable, a full refund will be granted.

Ties: The last qualifying spot or an alternate position shall be decided by a sudden death hole-by-hole playoff immediately after the last score has been approved and posted by the on-site TGA Official.

Score Posting: At the conclusion of each qualifier, each player’s score will be automatically posted to the World Handicap System. Please do not enter your own scores from the competitive rounds, as this will result in a double post.
