Field Size: 100

The field will be filled using 2011 TaylorMade-adidas Golf Qualifier Entry Criteria. Priority will go first to players not in the tournament field at the Junior All-Star at Robinson Ranch. Players in this tournament will be ranked according to the number of playing opportunities (tournament & qualifier) they have been accepted to with the AJGA this season. Those with the lowest opportunities will have a higher priority if spots remain in the National Qualifier. Ties at any step will be broken by random draw.

APPLICATION WINDOW: The application window will be open from Friday, July 15 at 3 p.m. ET – Monday, July 18 at Noon ET. The qualifier field and alternate list will be posted Tuesday, July 19 at 5 pm ET.

OTHER INFORMATION:

  • The new USGA condition of competition requiring a player’s clubs conform to the groove and punch mark specifications as detailed in the 2010-2011 Rules of Golf is NOT in effect for AJGA competitions.
  • Golf carts and spectator carts are not allowed without a Government issued permanent handicap placard.
  • Caddies are not permitted in AJGA tournament play.
  • Proper attire is required at all times and failure to comply may result in disqualification (see Dress Code Section of Code of Conduct).

    NO SHOW POLICY: Because the AJGA continues to receive far more applications than it has spots available for in its events, the AJGA is adopting the following policy:

    If you find that you cannot compete in the National Qualifier – Santa Clarita, you must withdraw from the event by contacting the AJGA at (770) 868-4200 or Tournament Director Rachel Graves at (770) 861-0519 prior to August 15. This allows the AJGA to replace you with an alternate. If you cannot compete and do not withdraw properly, you are considered a “no show,” and the following action will be taken:

    1. If you have already been accepted for another event, you will be notified of your disqualification from that event.
    2. If you have not been accepted in another event at this time, your next application will not be considered.
    3. If this offense is repeated, you will not be allowed to play in any more events for the remainder of the year.
