2019 Southern Matchplay
2019 Southern Matchplay Golf Championship
The Southern Matchplay Golf Championship is a season-long knockout competition open to amateur golfers across the South of England and Wales.
This is a fantastic opportunity to compete in the individual and pairs competitions and get the chance to win a place in The Grand Finals at the famous, award wining San Lorenzo Golf Course and stay in 5* luxury at The Dona Filipa Hotel in the Algarve, Portugal.
The competition comprises of up to 5 local rounds played in 2 regions, South East and South West between May and October with approximately four weeks to play each round.
The 1st round commences with a 36 hole ‘home & away’ match offering all players at least 2 competitive rounds before knockout rounds determine the semi-finalists.
Win a maximum of 5 qualifying rounds between April and October to be invited to the Regional playoff, with approximately four weeks to play each match.
The first round takes place on a ‘home and away’ basis over 36 holes, which means you are assured of at least one game away from your home course.
A draw for home advantage takes place in each subsequent round. We do not operate a policy whereby the first result registered receives home advantage. Early rounds are structured in regions to minimise travelling distances, the further you progress the further you may need to travel if drawn away.
You must win a maximum of just five matches to reach the Semi Final event.
Entrants must be a member of a golf club within one of these counties; England – Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Middlesex, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Suffolk, Surrey, Sussex or Wiltshire.
