An amateur is a golfer who cannot accept cash prizes but can receive a gift certificate not exceeding $1200 per competition.
An amateur golfer who chooses to relinquish their amateur status is considered a non-amateur and may receive a cash prize
A club professional who has not participated in any professional competition in 2020, 2021 and 2022
All competitors play in the 2 types of competitions simultaneously and they all play from the same tees (between 6,200 and 6,500 total yards)
- GROSS SCORES: GML Division
- NET SCORES (see Handicap section): CGC Division
An order of merit will be instituted and prizes will be awarded after the season’s finale.
Players who are not Golf Canada members will automatically become members by paying for the CGC Tour Elite membership.
Players who do not hold an official handicap at the first event will be assigned a provisional index. (Voir section Index Provisoire)
All the members’ indexes will be probationary until the calculation of their official tour indexes.
The official tour indexes (CGC Tour Index) will be calculated and made official after the 4th event of the season.
The index used for events will be the lower of the index issued by Golf Canada or the CGC Tour Index
***Each player is responsible for providing a valid and truthful index***
CGC TOUR INDEX
The Tour Index will be the average of the results according to the following table:
1 to 3 rounds – The best of these 1 to 3 rounds
4 and 5 rounds – The average of the two best rounds of these 4 or 5 rounds
6 and 7 rounds – The average of the three best rounds of these 6 or 7 rounds
8 and 9 rounds – The average of the four best rounds of these 8 or 9 rounds
Professionals will always play with an Index of ZERO, regardless of their results.
If a competitor does not have an official index before his first round, a temporary index will be assigned to him based on the information collected during his registration.
This index will be used until the player has entered 6 rounds in their Golf Canada Index file. The latter will replace the Provisional Index at that time.
A CGC Tour Index will be assigned to him following the 4th event and the lower of the Index between this, and the Golf Canada or Provisional Index, will be used to establish the competitor’s results
POINT SYSTEM (ORDER OF MERIT)
There will be a ranking for the gross score competition and another ranking for the net competition. (See points division table)
BAD ROUND OR ABSENCE : Each player is entitled to a bad round or an absence without being penalized in the standings. Points will only be accounted for the best 9 rounds or less if applicable, before the final event.
The points accumulated during the season remain in place for the grand finale. Points will be doubled for the three major events and for the final.
TIE BREAKER: There will be no additional holes to determine the winner of the event until the final round. The tie breaking formula for determining the winner of each event will be the score per hole in ascending order of handicap of difficulty.
