Troon Challenge

Troon Challenge

Sponsored by:


Troon invites you to experience great golf combined with friendly competition at the Troon Challenge, a series of amateur golf tournaments contested at several of the world's finest golf courses.
Regional qualifying events are held April through August at Troon Golf courses across the United States.


 

Regional Qualifier Format

The event format is a two-person modified best ball (shamble). Each player hits a tee-shot, the team selects the best tee-shot and each player plays their own ball from that point until it is holed. The lower of the two scores is the team score for the hole.

There will be a Gross and Net Division at each Regional Qualifier. Teams must declare which of the two divisions they would like to compete in upon registration. To compete in the Net Division, each team participant must provide a verifiable handicap. 50% of the Handicap Index will be used to calculate the course handicap for players in the Net Division.

 

Regional Team Entry Fee Includes

  • 18 holes with cart
  • Practice balls prior to play
  • Yardage guide, divot repair tool, metal bag tag (where available)
  • On-course contests (longest drive & closest to the pin)
  • $10 prize fund per player
  • Troon Rewards points for entry fee
  • Post-tournament awards reception
 

Additional Information

  • Teams can be comprised of two men, two women, or one man/one woman
  • Teams may enter multiple Regional Qualifier events to try to qualify for the Finals
  • Men will play approximate yardage of 6600 yards
  • Women will play approximate yardage of 5200 yards
  • Please note that the Troon Challenge is for amateurs only. Active PGA members or other golf professionals are not eligible to play
 

A minimum of one team in both the Gross and Net Divisions at all Regional Qualifiers will qualify for the 2017 Troon Challenge National Finals!
