The Vegas Golf Series tournaments have a 5-man Scramble format with four (4) amateurs and one (1) professional per team competing for $10,000* in purses and prizes.
At registration, each team will register as a team of two (2). Teams MUST respect the handicap criteria when choosing a partner. If you’re signing up as an individual, we’ll match you with a partner (must specify at time of online registration).
On the day of the competition, a draft will take place to determine the final teams. The final team will consist of four (4) amateur players (two teams of two players) and a professional. The draft will allow the teams with the highest Golf Canada Handicap Indexes to draft the team of their choice to start. In doing so, the playing field will level out and give everyone a fair opportunity to compete.
*Provided there are a minimum of 100 players
Qualifying Series Events have an expected $10,000 purse provided there are a minimum 100 players in the field.
The Top 3 teams will qualify for the Tour Championship on October 3-4, 2020.

The Vegas Golf Series will feature 4 Qualifying Series Events and The Tour Championship.
