When and where is the grand final?
The grand final will take place on September 26 at Fulford in York.
What is the format?
The NCG Top 100 Tour 2019 will be an individual Stableford, open to male and female golfers, with a handicap limit of 24 and 28 respectively.
The top three players at each of the 12 qualifiers will automatically qualify for the grand final, as will the top 25 from the running order of merit not already exempt.
How much does it cost?
Each qualifying event costs just £60 per person, per event at English venues and £40 at Scottish ones. This includes a bacon roll and coffee on arrival, 18 holes of golf, and a one-course lunch after the round.
Group bookings of four or more receive a 10% discount.
What can I win?
Thanks to TaylorMade you can win prizes at each qualifying event with the top three players winning prizes and qualifying for the Top 100 Tour Grand Final.
The prizes for each event are below:
- 2019 TaylorMade irons
- 2019 TaylorMade driver
- A year’s supply of Taylormade golf balls
- plus on course prizes.
We’ve also teamed up with Golfbreaks to offer the overall winner a chance to win tickets to the 2020 Masters. The tickets will be on offer to the winner of the Grand Final at Fulford.

So what happened last year?
Despite the efforts of our very own Steve Carroll, it was Luke Eustace, of Ferrybridge Golf Club, who claimed the top prize of a VIP trip for two to The Masters, courtesy of Golfbreaks, in the grand final of the NCG Top 100 Tour 2018.
Eustace booked his place in the final after navigating qualifying at Sherwood Forest, one of five qualifying events, before recording 36 points at Ganton to win by a single point and claim first place and the trip to Augusta, which includes two Sunday tickets to The Masters with full hospitality, three nights’ accommodation, flights, car rental, and 18 holes of golf.
