Atlantic Golf Championships
1) Team NB Selections Guidelines
Player exemptions for the Atlantic Golf Championships will be determined by using the final Player of the Year Points standings as accumulated in the year preceding the championships.
2) General Information & Guidelines
The Atlantic Golf Championships is made up of 20 player teams, from each Atlantic province, equally distributed between men and women and spread out over eight (8) age defined divisions. The age definitions for each division are as follows;
|Division||Years of Age|
|Amateur Male (3 Players)||0 to 39|
|Amateur Female (3 Players)||0 to 39|
|Mid-Master Male (3 Players)||40 to 54|

|Senior Male (3 Players)||55+|
|Senior Female (3 Players)||50+|
|Super Senior Male (1 Player)||65+|

3) Player Eligibility
As divisions are age specific, players will only be eligible to participate in the division for which they are age appropriate.
Eligible players will be invited to participate using the following set of guidelines;
a) Age as of the Prior Year
Players will be invited to participate in the age category for which they most closely identify, in the year preceding the competition, based on the age breakdowns in Section 2.a.
Players who transition from one age division to another following the closure of the selection cycle will only be eligible to compete in the division in which they began the selection cycle.
b) Player of the Year Standings
Players will be invited to participate based on the previous year’s final player of the year standings in the NB Men’s, Senior Men’s and Ladies Player of the Year Challenges, with those players earning the highest number of POY points, in their age / gender specific POY Challenge, having the first right of refusal. If a player declines their invitation to play in the competition, his/her position will be offered to the next person on the final player of the year standings and so on until all positions are filled.
c) Eligible Players from Older Age Divisions
Should Golf NB have difficulty filling a given division with age appropriate athletes, then athletes from an older age division may be considered to fill any available position(s).
d) Past Support of Golf NB / Golf Canada
Should it prove difficult to finalize any division using the parameters as listed above, search parameters and selection criteria may be expanded to include players, or individuals, who have demonstrated the requisite golfing ability along with past support of Golf NB / Golf Canada and / or their home club(s).
4) Alterations to the Selection Process
Golf NB reserves the right to change or alter the selection criteria as required due to changes to event structure, date changes or other unexpected circumstances. Any changes to the selection criteria will be publicized on the Golf NB website.
5) Confirmation Deadline
To expedite the selection process, players will be asked to confirm their interest in representing New Brunswick at the Atlantic Golf Championships, at a date to be determined by the selection committee and communicated to qualifying participants. Players who have not confirmed their desire to represent the province by the confirmation date, or who have indicated that they do not wish to participate, at the Atlantic Golf Championships will be removed from consideration and will see the exemption awarded to the next available participant.
