We are excited to execute this event at Ashburn Golf Club (New) as this club celebrates its 100th Anniversary.  We understand the high demand for this event and below are the details on how we will reach a field of 144 players.


The top sixty (60) players from the 2021 NSGA Men’s Amateur Championship (played at Avon Valley Golf & Country Club) are exempt for the 2022 championship.  These players will be contacted by email by March 4 to confirm their exemption and they will have from March 15 to March 30, 2022, to register for this year’s event.  CLICK HERE

A qualifier event will take place at The Links of Penn Hills (14049 NS-215 Shubenacadie, NS) on Monday, June 27, 2022, for players that are not exempt. Online registration for the qualifier will begin on June 1, 2022, at 9am.  A maximum number of 128 entries will be accepted for this event.  The registration fee is $50 (plus HST) paid at time of registration with credit card.  It will be a split-tee draw in foursomes from 11:30am until 1:30pm.  The starting hole and pairings will be randomly chosen.  The rain date for this event will be Monday, July 11, 2022. A minimum of 65 players will qualify for the Men’s Amateur to be held at New Ashburn based on 18-hole scoring. Exact number to be determined prior to start of the event. In the event of a tie for the final spot, a sudden-death playoff will be played immediately for the final spot.

For those unable to compete in the qualifier Event, an exemption application can be submitted to the NSGA. An online application form will be created, and the link will be sent out by March 30.  The online application form will ask for your detailed reason for not attending the qualifier event and competitive playing resume.  You will have until May 15, 2022, to submit your exemption application with an accompanying $50 non-refundable application fee.  Each application will be reviewed by the NSGA’s Selection Committee with no more than 15 exemptions being awarded by May 31, 2022. Each recipient granted an exemption will be contacted by phone and/or email and their $50 application fee will be credited toward their tournament registration fee.
