Yes, all participants MUST maintain an official WHS (World Handicap System) handicap. All players are subject to handicap adjustments before and during the event at the tournament committee discretion. Adjustments may be made without notice and players may be deemed ineligible for prizes without refund if necessary. Adjustments are not mandatory for that determination to take place. All decisions are final.

Consecutive top 5 finishes in a flight year over year may result in a USGA TPS type handicap reduction for consistent exemplary tournament finishes. 

If you do not currently keep an official WHS handicap, you MUST have an official WHS handicap established prior to the May 1st deadline.

At Golf Tourism Solutions, we operate multiple handicap events throughout the calendar year. In order to better serve our participants, we have developed and deployed a Tournament Points System for each event that helps our team better monitor handicapping year to year for those that consistently finish at or near the top of the leaderboard. 

  • First place = 5 points 
  • Second Place = 4 points 
  • Third Place = 3 points 
  • Fourth Place = 2 points
  • Fifth place = 1 point

This system takes into account an individuals top performances across the previous two years of the event using a cumulative points system. Once their TPS point total for the event reaches a certain level over the two year period for the event, the TPS reduction is then applied to the tournament index for that participant. The levels of reduction are detailed below.

  • 10 total points is a 3 stroke reduction
  • 8 total points is a 2 stroke reduction
  • 6 total points is a 1 stroke reduction

Golf Tourism Solutions events included in this Tournament Points System are the following: Myrtle Beach World Amateur, World Amateur Q School, Short Par 4 Fall Classic, GolfBuddy Veterans Classic, Brittain Resorts Classic, Golf Trek Challenge, and Saintnine Couples Challenge

*Tournament Points System subject to change at any time. 

The Veterans Classic is a two-person team event. The daily formats are:

  • Round 1 – Best Ball
  • Round 2 – Scramble
  • Round 3 – Modified Alternate Shot

Teams will be flighted by combined team handicap into approximately four flights.

IE: Team 1 has Player A with a 10.3 handicap and Player B with an 11.5 handicap.  Their combined handicap is 21.8. The lowest 60 team handicaps will be placed in the first flight. The next 60 teams will be in the second flight and so on. Based on a full field of 680 players*

The tournament will be scored with net results using a percentage of each player’s handicap.

Men 59 & younger will play from the standard white tees, Men 60+ will have the option to play from senior, 70+ will have a super senior tee option (if available), and Ladies will play from the Red tees. 

You may request to play in the same flight as another team, but all players will have to play down to the lowest team handicap of the players involved.

For example: If TEAM 1 has a 32.4 handicap and wanted to play with TEAM 2 that has a 19.2 handicap, then TEAM 1 would be flighted with each player being equally adjusted to reach a team handicap of 19.2. Once flighting is complete, TEAM 1 will have their handicaps restored to the highest threshold of that flight (not to exceed their original handicaps) in order to give them as much of their original handicap as possible (If the threshold was 24.2, then each TEAM 1 member would receive half of the 5.0 index points and play at a team handicap of 24.2 for the event). Requesting to be in the same flight as a friend DOES NOT mean you will be placed in the same grouping.

The tournament committee requires all Flight Together requests to be made on the handicap submission form.  No changes will be made to a player’s flight once the course assignments are announced.

No, all players will be riding with their intended partner.

The USGA Rules of Golf will govern play. Local rules at each course will apply. The Tournament Committee will resolve all disputes regarding every aspect of tournament play.
