Troon Challenge

Are You Up for the Challenge?

Sponsored by

Scoring Powered 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 throughout the year at Troon 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 will not be required to declare which of the two divisions they would like to compete in upon registration. Each team participant must provide a verifiable handicap, if applicable. The Handicap Index will be used to calculate the course handicap where 50% will be used for players to determine the lowest Net score.

The lowest Gross and Net scores of the entire field at all regional events will qualify for the 2020 Troon Challenge National Finals!

Regional Team Entry Fee Includes

  • 18 holes with cart
  • Practice balls prior to play
  • Callaway Mavrik towel
  • Callaway golf balls
  • Official AHEAD Troon Challenge hat
