All Irish Golfer Events are singles stableford competitions played off full handicap with players split into two categories (ladies and gents compete against each other in each category) with the winner of each category at each event progressing automatically to the Grand Final.

Category #1-Handicap from 0-11​
Category #2-Handicap 12 or over
The maximum handicap allowable for men is 24 and for ladies is 36
Where there are 20 or more ladies in the field a specific ladies category will be created and one lady will also progress to the Grand Final from that event

Nature Valley Order of Merit
If you don’t qualify automatically for the Grand Final as one of the 28 category winners from one of the 14 events you can always qualify through the Nature Valley Order of Merit. Your best 4 scores across the year will be counted and the Top 10 players not already qualified for the Grand Final will claim a place at the K Club in October.

The two Best Gross scores from the season not already qualified for the Grand Final will also progress to the K Club in October where the field will be made up of 40 players vying for the title of Irish Golfer Grand Champion 2018.

Masters Trip Prize
Every time you enter and check-in at one of our Irish Golfer Events you will receive a Masters draw ticket. So the more events in the series you play the better your odds of winning the trip to the Masters.​

At our grand final we will conduct a raffle of all players that have competed at our events for the 2018 season and that lucky person will win a 3-day trip including flights, accommodation & 2019 Masters tickets (Wednesday, Par 3 competition & Thursday, Opening day of play)
