Players were able to take advantage of more than one opportunity to qualify and enter as many of the tournaments as they wished, however they were required to enter each event separately.

In addition to the coveted invitations to the NSW Open, players also had an opportunity to qualify for the Lincoln Place NSW Men’s Senior Open, with the top two scores from competitors aged over 50 grabbing a spot to compete against the legends of Australian Professional golf at Thurgoona Country Club Resort in October.
To add some incentive for the handicap golfer to get out and compete as well, the Nett winner from each event in 2018 secured a spot for themselves and two friends in the NSW Open Championship Pro-Am.
General Manager of Golf, Golf NSW Graeme Phillipson, said the regional qualifying series is a fantastic pathway for the best amateur players in the State to qualify for the NSW Open.
The NSW Open Golf Championship is proudly supported by the NSW Government and Destination NSW, and is a key part of the 2019 Australian Summer of Golf.
