Order Of Merit Qualifier

The Order of Merit points are slightly higher for the Tour Major.

Merit points are usually awarded on the basis of 50 to the winner, 49 for 2nd, 48 for 3rd and so on.  But for the Four Majors the top ten will each receive an additional 10 points.  11th place and lower will receive the normal points allocation for their position.

At each event the Top 40 players will receive Order of Merit points.  After the 40th place these players will be deemed to have missed the cut and one point will be given.

Competition Format

The playing format for the Tour Majors is ‘Net Strokeplay’ with a full handicap allowance, off the Yellow Tees

About The Players Club

Situated just one mile from junction 18 of the M4 (Bristol/Bath) on the outskirts of Bristol bordering Wiltshire and Gloucestershire ‘The Players Club’ is dedicated to the game of golf.

The 15th Hole on the Codrington Course at The Players Club

With two 18 hole courses, a 9 hole Par 3 course and together with first class practice facilities it has become home to many golf professionals competing on the European tours.

The Club have staged nine SKY televised EuroPro Tour events, eleven Stage 1 EuroPro Q School Events, seven West Region PGA Championships and the English Over 48’s championship three times, as well as regional finals for many top amateur and professional events.

In 2019 the Club held stage 1 of the European Tour Q-School for the second time.

In 2020 the Club will host the Fore King Golf Tour Champs for the first time.

The club opened in 2002 and was quickly ranked 113 in  the Golf World 2006 ‘Best Courses in Great Britain and Ireland’. All the courses have been built to the finest specifications with USGA greens, fairway irrigation and a rich landscape with woodland, lakes and gorse all coming into play.

The courses are designed by Adrian Stiff who also designed highly rated neighbours Cumberwell Park and The Kendleshire.

Fore King Golf Tour Champs at The Players Club

The flagship course, the Codrington course, is designed to test you, thrill you and frustrate you in equal measure, with the Stranahan course requiring positional play and is ideal for higher handicappers, ladies and seniors.

It’s one of Steve’s favourite venues and is sure to host multiple Fore King Golf Events throughout each season.

Steve King, the founder of Fore King Golf, started playing golf at the tender age of 29, after years spent playing many other sports and getting dodgy knees. Although late to the game, Steve soon fell in love with the sport and found himself, like many others, addicted to the pursuit of improvement and playing better. He is currently a member of The Kendleshire Golf Club & Hercules Golf Society, as well as running several competitions for Fore King Golf
