How do I participate?
The 2019 National Championship is open to all players, including
those not currently a member of the Legacy Golf Tour. However,
ALL players intending to compete for cash awards must qualify to
enter the event. Additionally, players must both be a
current season member in good standing having posted a minimum
of two tournament scores during the current season to be
eligible to receive the first place award.
There are three options available through which players may
qualify to enter the 2019 Legacy Golf Tour National
- Option One
Players may qualify to
enter the final through any regularly scheduled Legacy Golf Tour
(Additional details below)
- Option Two
Players may qualify during a stand-alone qualifier held on a weekday
or during their normal course of play with their regular playing
partners. A minimum of 4 participants must be engaged in the attempt
at qualifying for an Option Two qualifier to be conducted.
(Additional details below)
- Option Three (For Legacy Golf Tour members only
Current Legacy Golf Tour members may qualify by posting
a score of net even part on their fourth or subsequent attempt
V - Option One Qualifying Details
Entrants may compete as a Legacy Golf Tour member or non-member
within regular Legacy tour stops. For tour members, a $95 initial
'Qualifier' entry fee must be submitted at the time of event
check-in (along with the normal tour event fees). The score posted
by the player in the regular tour stop will be applied to both the
tour stop event as well as the 'Qualifier.' Any qualifying
participant who finishes in the money or a prize awarded position
(top 25% of field) qualifies to enter the final. This is typically a
minimum of 1 out of every 4 entrants.
All regular tour stops between now and the 36-hole final are
designated as 'Qualifier' events. This arrangement allows Legacy
Golf Tour members to save the expense of additional green fees and
having to compete in another 18-hole 'Qualifier' in order to make it
to the final.
Participating non-members may also utilize a weekend tour stop for
'Qualifier' competition only. Players desiring to exercise this
option must submit a $125 ‘Qualifier’ fee directly to Legacy Golf
Tour prior to qualifying. These individuals are also responsible for
payment of their golf related expenses such as green fee and cart
fee etc. to Legacy Golf Tour prior to their attempt at qualifying.
Scores for all players electing to participate in the qualifying
component will be included with those posted by tour stop entrants
to determine which players successfully qualified and can advance to
VI - Option Two Qualifying Details
Entrants may compete in a scheduled 'Qualifier' on weekdays by
pre-paying the $125 'Qualifier' fee to Legacy Golf Tour or its
representative. Weekday 'Qualifiers' will be conducted from time to
time providing a minimum of 4 players enter.
In cases when no ‘Qualifier’ is scheduled, players may organize
their own so long as a minimum of 4 players participate. The fee
schedule is the same as that for a scheduled qualifier. In either
case, the associated ‘Qualifier’ fee must be submitted to Legacy
Golf Tour via a completed entry form found on the tour website. Golf
related expenses under these formats are the responsibility of the
player and to be paid directly to the host facility on the day of
the 'Qualifier' competition.
Players who are not a Legacy Golf Tour member are subject to Legacy
Golf Tour’s ‘New Player' handicap adjustment policies and tournament
controls. Scores posted on site at the host facility are unofficial
results. Official results will be posted within 72 hours of event
completion after handicapping audit and any adjustments, if
applicable, are finalized. Entrants will be notified via email or US
mail of their final results and standing. Results will also be
posted on the Legacy Golf Tour website.
VII - Failure to Qualify
In the event a qualifying entrant fails to qualify, additional
attempts may be made at the next scheduled 'Qualifier' competition
or tour stop chosen by the entrant. A qualifier ‘Re-Try’ fee of $45
must be submitted prior to any subsequent qualifying attempt.
Players may attempt to 'Qualify' as many times as they wish until
the final 'Qualifier' is completed, typically during the week prior
to the National Championship. As mentioned previously, Legacy Golf
Tour members have a third option of qualifying by posting a score of
net even par on their fourth or subsequent qualifying attempt.
