About Tournament


The concept was created to introduce a new and different amateur world event in a MatchPlay format that would allow more than the traditional 12-16 players to compete in a single championship and eliminate the knock out component after each match.

3-Matches every 18-Holes

MatchPlay is also normally played over 18 holes. The uniqueness of the World Amateur MatchPlay Championship is that every 6 holes is a match, so each player in a four-ball plays 3 matches on rotation over 18 holes.


Teams are made up of four members. Each will play 3 x 6-hole matches per day in a fourball against closely aligned or the same Handicap Index.

  • Maximum Men's Handicap Index - 24
  • Maximum Ladies' Handicap Index - 30

Each player plays simultaneously as a team and for their individual trophy
