Troon Challenge

Village Club

Village Heath Clubs & Spas

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 is a Gross and Net Division at each Regional Qualifier. All Teams are eligible to compete in both divisions. Each team participant must provide a valid USGA GHIN handicap to compete in the Net Division. Players will receive 50% of their Course Handicap to determine their net score per hole.

The lowest Gross and Net scores of the entire field at all regional events will qualify for the 2022 Troon Challenge National Finals!

Regional Team Entry Fee Includes

  • 18 holes with cart
  • Practice balls prior to play
  • Callaway golf balls
  • Official AHEAD Troon Challenge hat
  • Live scoring powered by Golf Genius
  • Yardage guide, divot repair tool, bag tag (where available)
  • On-course contests (longest drive, putt & closest to the pin)
  • $10 prize fund per player
  • Troon Rewards points for entry fee

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 6,500 – 6,800 yards
