The Championship will be played over 72-holes at Commonwealth and Kingston Heath Golf Clubs from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 December. All players that register after this date will be required to pre-qualify for the Championship proper.
The starting field for the Port Phillip, which incorporates the qualifying rounds for the Men’s & Women’s Victorian Amateur Championships, will be limited to 120 male players and 48 female players. If excess entries are received, a pre-qualifying round will be held at the Commonwealth Golf Club on the afternoon of Wednesday 11 December. A cut in both sections will apply after the opening two rounds to determine a maximum of 58 male players and 26 female players to progress to the final 36-holes on Sunday.
After the completion of the Port Phillip Amateur, the leading 32 male and 16 female players will advance to contest the Match Play Rounds of the Men’s & Women’s Victorian Amateur Championships at Commonwealth and Kingston Heath from Monday 16 December. The 36-hole finals to decide both titles will be played on Wednesday 18 December.
Entry into the Port Phillip Amateur Tournament is $150 and handicaps must not exceed 3.4 stokes for men and 9.4 strokes for women. Players that participate in the pre-qualifying event but fail to pre-qualify will be refunded an amount of $100.
