Registration is now open for all the
TGA Fall Series events. To register, click here.
The Fall Series was established
in part to help fill the void left in many college-aged golfers’ schedules,
which have been drastically altered because of ongoing COVID-19 concerns. With
the majority of fall golf schedules canceled around the country, the TGA Fall
Series will provide opportunities for collegians, as well as other amateurs, to
play in competitive events during the hiatus.
The format for all the Fall
Series events is 54 holes of individual stroke play. The fields are comprised
of 88 total players, including 60 men and 28 women. Although the events are
open to all golfers that fit the eligibility criteria, two-thirds of each
gender division will be reserved for college-aged golfers.
The men will play from
approximately 6,800-7,000 yards. The women will play from 6,000-6,200 yards.
The TGA Fall Series takes place
from mid-October to mid-November, with only one event taking place per week.
Each event will be played during the week.
To be eligible for the TGA Fall
Series events, golfers must be members of a TGA Member Club with an established
active World Handicap System Index. The men must have an established WHS Index
of 6.4 or lower to register. Women must have an established WHS Index of 12.4
The cost for each event is $175,
which includes all course fees, practice facility access and cart fee.
Competitors will be responsible for scheduling and paying for their own
practice rounds. There is not an official practice round date.
