Terms of Competition – Illawarra Open Series

Published: January 6, 2023
Last Update: January 6, 2023

1.1 This competition is open to male amateur golfers who are members of an affiliated Golf NSW Illawarra Region golf club.
1.2 Must have played a minimum of eight (8) Illawarra Open Series rounds.


2.1 The IOS will be calculated based on the events played on the IOS Calendar, which can be found on the Golf NSW Illawarra Region portal – https://www.golfgenius.com/pages/7286566485860855364 

2.2 The IOS will recognise performances for both Gross and Nett scoring.

2.3 Points are awarded for each event based upon the finishing position of each individual in the field of golfers, regardless of whether those players are registered IOS players or not.

2.4 A player’s final IOS points total will comprise all points accrued from his best eight (8) performances in designated events during that calendar year. Once a player plays more than eight designated events, his worst performance (e.g. lowest points total from a designated event) drops off for each additional event he plays. 

2.5 Players finishing tied for a position in an event all receive the points for that position. Except if there is a play off for first then the play-off winner receives 1st place points and the others in the play-off receive 2nd place points. 

2.6 It is the Player’s responsibility to check the points table on the IOS web site and advise Golf NSW Illawarra Region, if he feels there is a discrepancy.
