The 149th Open Championships – qualification process
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic changes to the qualifying process for The 149th Open Championship were made by The R&A.
Regional Qualifying for the 2021 Open Championship took place on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th June at four courses in England.
The qualifying venues are Notts G.C. (Hollinwell), Prince’s G.C., St. Annes Old Links G.C. and West Lancashire G.C.
This is the point at which most amateur golfers enter the competition, although some are exempted in to Final Qualifying and a lucky handful the Championship itself.
Any amateur with a handicap index no higher than 0.4 or a WAGR listing of 1st-2,000th during 2021 who paid the £150 entry fee could enter.
Four 36 hole Final Qualifying events will be played at the same venues on Tuesday 29th June.
