About the golf tournament

The WACT4BBB Tournament is built around a series of handicapped team events over two stages under the normal rules of golf.

To play in this tournament, you must

  1. Form a team of four amateur golfers
  2. Have one qualified captain.
  3. All members of the team must hold current golf link cards
  4. Must belong to the same golf course as a member
  5. No team can have more than 2 A-Grade or 2 C Grade players.  For example:  AABB (eligible), AACC (eligible), ABBB (eligible), BBBB (eligible), ABCC (eligible), AAAB (ineligible), ACCC (ineligible)
  6. Pay a small entrance fee to participate in the event. $30
  7.  (GST inclusive) per qualifying trial.
  8. During the qualifying rounds, no team member can mark a fellow team member’s card. e.g 4 teams sign up for WACT4BBB, when signing up online, each member of the team is entered into positions 1, 2, 3, and 4. On the day of the monthly medal, the four teams enter the club’s time sheet with all 1st’s, all 2nd’s, all 3rd’s, and all 4th’s playing with each other in the monthly medal. This way, no one member will match/mark a card of his own team.

After signing up, your team can participate in 6 rounds across 32 weeks at your designated local club for a chance to be flown from Melbourne, with all expenses paid, to Tasmania to represent your club and state and play in our finals tournament.

Handicap standards ( Golf Australia )

    • A Grade up to GA handicap 11.2

    • B Grade is 11.3 to 17.6 GA Handicap

    • C Grade would then be 17.7 GA handicap and above 


There are three qualifying trials, each with two rounds. To qualify for the World Amateur 4BBB Champions Tournament finals, you must compete in at least two rounds (monthly medal rounds).

In the first round (the first monthly medal round), one team member must qualify as a captain by placing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in their grade. Then, all team members add their scores, completing the first qualifying round.

The team competes in the second round (the second monthly medal round). After the second round, the team adds all its second-round scores, completing the second qualifying round.

The team’s two qualifying rounds (two monthly medal rounds) scores are added to make the team score for one qualifying trial.

The best 20 teams across Australia will earn tickets to the finals based on their total scores during the prior qualifying trials.

Those 20 teams fly and compete expense free from Melbourne.


The Australia/World Amateur 4BBB Champions Tournament Final: 11 November 2025 to 17 November 2025.

The finals of the WACT4BBB will be played across four of the best and most recognised courses in Australia;

  • Barnbougle Lost Farm
  • Barnbougle Dunes
  • Cape Wickham, and
  • Ocean Dunes

By joining, you’ll live out your dream of being a professional golfer on the ‘tour’ and have a chance at winning a coveted purple jacket and the title of Australia’s best 4BBB amateur team. At worst, you’ll have a great excuse to play six more rounds than usual with some mates at your local club—it’s a win-win either way!

The overall championship winners automatically qualify (free of charge) to defend their title in 2026.


Two lucky teams will be granted the privilege of participating in the finals directly, bypassing the qualification process, through the exclusive Golden Ticket entry.

  • One Golden Ticket is drawn as a lucky draw from each club’s first five signed-up teams. 
  • The other Golden Ticket is drawn from all team player cards entered.

If no one qualified as a captain for the team in the first round, still complete and enter your team scores, as your team could win the lucky team draw at the end of the three qualifying trials.


There are three qualifying trials with six qualifying rounds throughout 2025 to allow for some downtime between games

Qualifying Trial 


 Entry fee ( GST inclusive)

Qualifying Trial 1

January/February/March   Round 1/Round 2


Qualifying Trial 2

April/May/June    Round 3/Round 4


Qualifying Trial 3

July/August/September  Round 5/Round 6


Each qualifying trial will start with the qualifying round, in which one of your team members qualifies as captain by finishing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in either A, B, or C grade in your club’s monthly medal round. 

The second round in each qualifying trial is the Captain + Team Qualifying Round.

Each team must complete each two-month qualifying trial before starting a new one. Each team can enter one or as many qualifying trials as they wish. Each time a team enters a qualifying trial, it will pay the $30 (GST inclusive) entry fee.

Remember, even if you don’t qualify, complete both rounds and enter both cards for your chance to win the lucky draw Golden Tickets (a place at the finals).



All amateur golfers (who are members of a private club and hold a golf link number handicap) can form a team if one player of the team qualifies by placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the monthly medal (1st WACT4BBB Qualifier) of their grade, then that player becomes the captain of the team and takes the team to round two.

If more than one team player qualifies, then the highest qualifying player shall be Captain EG; player A comes 2nd, and player B comes 1st; players C and D did not place. As 1st beats 2nd, player B would be the Qualified Captain.

All four members of the team record their positions/placing in both the Monthly Medal and WACT4BBB fields and then enter them on the WACT4BBB scorecard online. This becomes the Team’s score for round one.


Led by your captain, your team will play and score each member of the team’s position/place in the second Monthly Medal round/(second WACT4BBB qualifying trial) across the field. This completes round two. The two Qualifying Rounds are combined to make the team’s scores, easy.

After each qualifying trial, the Golden Tickets will be won and sent out!

These rounds (the Qualifying Round and the one Captain + Team Qualifying Round) Can be completed two more times to total six rounds over 32 weeks, but you can choose to enter only one qualifier or all three to see if your team can earn a golden ticket!

Sounds easy enough right? You probably play more golf than that in your sleep! After you’ve completed all your qualifying rounds and recorded your scores it’s then time to cross your fingers and picture yourself wearing a coveted purple jacket getting flown around Tasmania’s best golf courses.
