The Victorian Four-Ball Championship commenced in 1997 in response to a desire to create more State level events for club golfers, regardless of their geographic location, age or handicap level. The event has grown significantly since attracting 500 pairs in the inaugural year to now annually attracts around 1,000 competing pairs. In participation terms, the Victorian Four-Ball Championship is the largest event in Victoria.
The Championship is open to all golfers who are members of affiliated clubs and who have a valid Australian handicap. The Championship involves men’s, women’s, and mixed sections and is played in two parts:
- • 18-hole qualifying rounds for all entering pairs
- • 36-hole final held over two days for 100 qualifying pairs
The Championship is a four-ball best ball handicap stableford with an entry fee applicable from each pair of players. All pairs are permitted to compete in one metropolitan qualifying round and unlimited regional qualifying rounds.
Approximately 20-22 qualifying rounds are held on Sunday’s and weekdays from January to early March each year. Pairs are requested to nominate their preferred options for metropolitan qualifiers.
