Championship Format

All championship contestants play in the first and second 18-hole rounds on July 16th and 17th. After these 36 holes, the low 64 scores will be determined. If a tie exists for the 64th seed, a sudden-death playoff will be conducted on July 17th and will begin 10 minutes after the final score is posted to the main scoreboard.  The starting tee for the playoff will be announced and posted to the main scoreboard.  All players subject to the play-off must be present at the play-off starting tee for the call of the roll. Any player not present will be eliminated from the play-off.  The match play bracket will be determined and seeded based on the player's 36-hole score with ties broken by scorecard return. Matches will be played over 18 holes, with the exception of the Championship match that will be played over 36 holes.


Registration

The registration table will be near the golf shop patio at Milburn Country Club and open on Monday, July 15th from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm. At registration players will receive their contestant packet that includes player gifts, information on KGA local rules and addendum to local rules, host club policies, confirmation of 1st and 2nd round tee times, questions answered or assistance provided.

Golf Carts (Players & Spectators)

Contestants are strongly encouraged to walk during the championship, but golf carts will be available for rent at the expense of the player on a per round basis.

Spectator Carts - Spectator carts will NOT be available during the championship.

Caddies

The KGA requires that any caddie while serving in that capacity be identified by wearing a caddie bib with the player’s name attached (provided by the KGA).  Individuals failing to comply with this KGA requirement will not be permitted to serve as a player’s caddie.  Caddies must comply with the KGA dress code requirements to be allowed to serve in the role of caddie.  Caddie bibs must be returned following each round of play so that they can be laundered and prepared for the next round of play.


Exceptions will be made on the caddie bib wearing requirement if the temperatures exceed 100 degrees.

Practice Facilities

The practice facilities are for practice PRIOR to your round only.  Practice following your round is not allowed.  The practice facilities will open one hour prior to the first starting time each day.

Water/Hydration

Typically, Kansas Amateur week is a hot one.  Hydration is extremely important.  The KGA strongly encourages you to make a personal water bottle part of your equipment for the week.  The club will have several places on the course where you can obtain ice and/or water.  The snack shop in the clubhouse has food, bottled water and sport drinks for sale.  Please do not bring such items to the golf course as it is appropriate that they be purchased at the club.

Gift Certificates

Players that advance to match play will be awarded gift certificates redeemable for merchandise in the Milburn Country Club golf shop.  Gift certificates for players that lose their match must be claimed prior to the completion of the championship.  Any gift certificate not claimed will be voided after the championship is completed.  High school players that are still enrolled in a Kansas high school sanctioned by the KSHSAA are not eligible to receive a gift certificate per the KSHSAA amateur status policy.
