Women's Senior GA OOM

The Golf Australia Order of Merit (GA OOM), previously known as the Australian Amateur Ranking System, provides players the opportunity to monitor their performance based on results from particular Australian events (known as Golf Australia Order of Merit Events).

The GA OOM is primarily aimed at Australian based golfers who contest Australian events. It encourages participation among low-handicapped golfers and allows them to monitor their own development and form.

> if relevant, satisfy particular tournament eligibility criteria (in the conditions for the tournament for which a player is being considered for seleciton).

Note: The GA Championship Committee reserves the right to veto a selection, including "automatic selections", where, in its absolute discretion, it feels a player's record, behaviour, disciplinary history or participation is not in the best interests of the game or the relevant event.

2. Golf Australia covers the costs of return economy airfares for four players, three nights' accommodation for four players, green fees, range balls, pull buggies, a playing uniform and the official dinner for all players.

3. The team will be selected as follows:
> The leading four (4) available players from the GA OOM as at the time of selection (these players must have played in at least two GA OOM events in the previous 12-months).
> Two (2) players at the discretion of GA (there is no minimum number of GA OOM events these players must have played).

Note: The two (2) players selected at the discretion of GA will be required to meet the following criteria:
a) Any player of outstanding ability who will have attained the age of 55 years at the time of the event even if they have not played in any GA OOM events should be considered.
b) A player cannot be a GA selection on more than two (2) consecutive ocassions unless they are the Australian champion.

The team will be selected following the Darwin Senior Open at the end of July.

> The winner, runner up, and two semi-finalists of the Australian Women's Senior Amateur Championship receive a $1,000 grant to offset expenses associated with attending the NZ Women's Senior Match Play Championship. 

> Should one of these players not be an Australian, the grant will be awarded to the quarter-finalist who finished lowest in the qualifying rounds.
