Guidelines for Amateur Sponsored Events

As a general rule an amateur golfer cannot accept expenses to compete in a golf competition. A number of exceptions apply and these are set out in Amateur Status Rule 4-2. They include family support, junior events, team events, and support from national and state golf associations.

Each year Golf Australia is asked to approve a small number of sponsored handicap competitions under Rule 4-2g of the Rules of Amateur Status, thereby allowing the organisers or sponsors of such events to pay expenses (ie travel and accommodation costs) on behalf of competitors.
