Got game?

The 2018 NSW Open Regional Qualifying venues and dates have been announced.

The Qualifying series, which is now in it’s fourth year, offers an ideal opportunity for amateur golfers from across NSW and interstate to secure their place early in the 2019 NSW Open at Twin Creeks Golf and Country Club this November.

Players can take advantage of more than one opportunity to qualify, and enter as many of the tournaments as they wish, however they will be required to enter each event separately.

Entry forms are available from the relevant club contact listed below. To enter, simply email the club representative or phone the club contact directly.

Moree Golf Club will host the first qualifier on May 5th and 6th with entries already Open.

Forbes is next, with the date set for Sunday, May 13th.

The Camden Cup on May 19th will provide an opportunity to close to Sydney for many, while Thurgoona Country Club Resort will host a 36 hole qualifier on the weekend of May 26th-27th.

The Island Golf Club, Nambucca Heads, which recently hosted the Men’s and Women’s NSW Senior Amateur titles, will play host to an 18 hole qualifier on June 10th.

On October 20th & 21st, the 36 hole Bathurst Open will be hotly contested, while the following week, the final spot up for grabs will be contested in the Griffith Open.

In addition to the coveted invitations to the NSW Open, players have an opportunity to also qualify for the NSW Men’s Senior Open, with the top two scores from competitors aged over 50 receiving an invitation to compete against the legends of Australian Professional Golf at Thurgoona Country Club Resort in October.

To add some incentive for the handicap golfer to get out and compete as well, the Nett winner from each event will secure a spot for themselves and two friends in the NSW Open Championship Pro-AM.

General Manager of Golf, Golf NSW Graeme Phillipson, said the regional qualifying series is a fantastic pathway for the best amateur players in the State to qualify for the NSW Open.
