FAQ: Current Season

For the next year, there are going to be changes in the play format, number of teams and rounds.

Last change: March 1, 2023.

What is the cost?

For the Season 2023 the participation fee is set at $200 per team. But, those that sign up by July 1st will receive a 50% discount.

Will the 2nd year format be different from the 1st year?

We have targeted 11 Regions to provide teams to qualify for the finals. Each Region includes multiple Areas. The 12th team won the Raffle at the 2022 National Finals at Barton Creek and will have a representative team. The 2023 National Finals will be a 12-team competition.

Is there a limit to a number of teams?

The target # of teams is 144 per Region. If we get more than 144 teams, there will be a play-in match before Regional qualifying matches are scheduled to begin. For example, if 145 teams sign up, #144 will host #145. The winner advances to the Regional Qualifying. The losing team gets their participation fee refunded.

In addition to the participation fees, what are my costs?

You are responsible for your golf costs at the Qualifying levels. National Match Play will cover the costs of green fees and lodging for each player (based on double occupancy) at the National Finals. Players will be responsible for travel to get to the National Finals. Further, an opening reception and an awards buffet banquet will be provided. Discount packages will be available for non-golfing guests.

What about refunds?

Each team can request and receive a full refund up to one week after the initial or subsequent change to their play schedule has been posted.

Where will the 2023 finals be held?

The 2023 finals will be at Bandon Dunes, and 2024 will be at Pinehurst, two of golf’s bucket list venues.
