Approved Events

The R&A grants approval for the payment of expenses under Rule 4-2g solely for the purpose of protecting the Amateur Status of competitors receiving expenses when competing in sponsored handicap events.  The R&A does not undertake any investigation into the organisation or financial structure of such events beyond the requirements set out in the published guidelines.  As with any other event, amateur golfers should take care when paying substantial entry fees to ensure that any event they seek to enter is operated by a reputable organisation and that the conditions or regulations of the event are clear what will happen in the event of the competition not going forward as anticipated.
