Registration and fees

110 places are available for each qualifying tournament. There is much demand for these places, so Registrations are processed strictly by receipt. As a Club member, you can register for any three tournaments. These registrations have to be prioritised. If your preferred tournament is already full, we will confirm your second or third choice if possible. This gives every Club member the chance to take part in a tournament. Your personal tournament list will be sent to you at the beginning of April.

The tournament fee is CHF 130.-. This price includes: Snack after 9 holes, aperitif, dinner and a gift on arrival

  • Category later mid-field: travel distance to 120 km
