2019 Fiji

Terms and Conditions

By registering for the Fiji Invitational, each participant is responsible for familiarising themselves with, complying with and agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

3LG stands for 3 Links Golf.

The personal details requested from playing participants are for the purpose of:

By providing their personal details, playing participants give their consent to the use of their personal information by 3LG for these purposes.

3LG may arrange media promotion and publicity before, during and after the Fiji Invitational. Players give approval for references to them and photos of them appearing and being used for marketing purposes. If this is unacceptable, the player must advise in writing at the time of registration.

3LG reserves the right at any time to cancel, modify, suspend or supersede the Fiji Invitational in its absolute discretion if it considers the Fiji Invitational is not capable of being conducted as specified, or if required to do so by law. If the Fiji Invitational is cancelled by 3LG then all monies paid will be refunded.

3LG reserves the right to alter the cost of the Fiji Invitational due to any fluctuations in the component cost increases that it incurs after initial publication.

3LG shall be held harmless and not be liable for any losses incurred by a participant as a result of the cancellation of the Fiji Invitational or a change to the date, time or venue of the Fiji Invitational.

Full payment is preferred at time of registration. However, a 20% deposit may be paid for registrations up until 29th March 2019 with the balance due on 10th May 2019.  Cheques should be made payable to 3 Links Golf Pty Ltd. Payments by credit card will attract a surcharge equal to 1.75% of the payment amount.

Cancellation fees apply as follows:

Any refund or cancellation requests must be made in writing to 3 Links Golf at info@3linksgolf.com.au

Each participant is responsible for ensuring that all necessary personal insurance policies are obtained prior to the Fiji Invitational. 3LG strongly recommends that at the time of booking a comprehensive Travel Insurance policy is taken out.

By registering for the Fiji Invitational, participants agree to do so at their own risk. 3 Links Golf, host golf clubs and other suppliers of goods and services accept no liability for any death, injury, property loss or damage incurred during or arising out of any aspect of the conduct of the Fiji Invitational.

Play will be conducted in accordance with the Royal & Ancient Rules of Golf and any local rules applicable at the course of play. Players are also expected to comply with any dress code requirements at the course of play.

All players are to ensure that they adhere to pace of play requirements – a group should remain directly behind the group in front. Any player (or group) causing a group to be a full hole behind may be penalised as 3LG determines.

For all play in the Fiji Invitational a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If a player uses a distance measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his or her play (e.g. gradient, windspeed, temperature, etc.) the player is in breach of rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is used.

To be eligible to win any of the prizes on offer, a playing participant must be able to provide proof of their official Golf Australia (or relevant equivalent if from overseas) handicap prior to the start of the Fiji Invitational. Failure to do so will result in an inability to participate in any prizes on offer. Each individual player must have at least 10 individual competition rounds recorded within their handicap record over the preceding 12 months. Upon application from an individual player, 3LG will consider granting an exemption to this condition (e.g. a new player who has recently obtained a Golf Australia Handicap for the first time).

All players’ Golf Australia handicaps as recorded on Golflink, or relevant equivalent if from overseas, will be used at the commencement of the first round and be frozen for the duration of the event. Each day of the Fiji Invitational players will play with a maximum Golf Australia (or equivalent) handicap of 27 for males and 36 for females (plus any slope adjustment).

The Fiji Invitational will be played over 54 holes. The Fiji Invitational is a 4-person team event (3 amateurs and 1 professional golfer) with the best 2 stableford scores from each hole counting toward the team score. Each team must have 4 players and may combine male and female players. The winning team will be decided by the highest aggregate team Stableford score over the 54 holes played. In the event of a tie for either of the top 2 places in the team event after 54 holes, the winning teams will be determined using the countback methodology as recommended by Golf Australia. The decision of 3LG in this regard is final. In the Fiji Invitational a tie for Overall trophies will be resolved by a countback system based on points gained on the most difficult course (according to the Slope course rating system) shall apply. If scores are still the same, then based on the second most difficult course (according to the Slope course rating system) shall be applied and so on until one winner is decided.
