The R&A 9-Hole Championship

Lead the way for the 2017 Champion Golfer of the Year by earning the chance to play at Royal Birkdale before The 146th Open begins!

The R&A is again demonstrating its support for 9-hole golf as an ideal way to play golf in less time by continuing a new championship for club handicap golfers this season.

Their inaugural event for amateurs was played at Royal Troon last July, giving the players the opportunity to play nine holes at the historic Ayrshire links on the eve of The Open.

In 2017, the event is being expanded to cover golf clubs in GB&I with players being given the opportunity to qualify at nine hole events held by The R&A’s affiliated national associations in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales – and go on to tee up in the final at renowned Royal Birkdale!

Clubs simply hold a designated 9-hole qualifying competition in the weeks ahead, open to men, women, boys and girls members with a CONGU handicap.

Scores are then to be submitted to Scottish Golf by 5 June, with scores collated and a national leaderboard created to determine the winning pairs.
