Terms and Conditions

By registering for the Queenstown NZ Tournament 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.

QNZT stands for Queenstown New Zealand Tournament

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 QNZT. 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 QNZT in its absolute discretion if it considers the QNZT is not capable of being conducted as specified, or if required to do so by law. If the QNZT is cancelled by 3LG then all monies paid will be refunded.

3LG reserves the right to alter the cost of the QNZT 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 QNZT or a change to the date, time or venue of the QNZT.

Full payment is required at time of registration. 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 QNZT. 3LG advises that each participant is responsible for taking out their own Travel Insurance policy at time of booking. 3LG will not be held responsible or liable for any out of pocket costs incurred by the participant due to personal reasons or unforseen events on the part of the participant. Any out of pocket costs in this regard will be the responsibility solely of the participant

By registering for the QNZT, 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 QNZT.

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 QNZT 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 QNZT. 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 QNZT players will play with a maximum Golf Australia (or equivalent) handicap of 27 for males and 36 for females (plus any slope adjustment).

The QNZT will be played over 54 holes. The QNZT is an individual stableford event with scores from each round counting toward the overall individual score.  The winner will be decided by the highest aggregate Stableford score over the 54 holes played. In the event of a tie the winner will be determined using the countback methodology as recommended by Golf Australia. The decision of 3LG in this regard is final. In the QNZT 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.
