Quota Positions and Guidelines

Quota Position Guidelines
Golf Canada National Championships

General Policy re: Selection of NB Men's & Women's Amateur, Men's Mid-Amateur, Boys & Girls Junior & Men's & Women's Senior Quota Positions.

Annually Golf Canada allots a limited number of exemptions, or quota positions, for each national championship, to the provincial golf associations across Canada. Three of the allotted exemptions are reserved for NBGA Provincial Team Members, while the remaining quota positions will be made available to deserving candidates.

1. Role of the Executive Committee:

The Executive Committee, acting on the recommendation of its respective portfolio chair, shall select and invite qualified golfers to represent the NBGA and the Province of New Brunswick at:

National Championships sanctioned and administered by Golf Canada including the Canadian Men's Amateur Championship, the Royale Cup Canadian Women's Amateur Championship, the Canadian Men's Mid-Amateur Championship, the Canadian Men's Senior Championship, the Royale Cup Canadian Women's Senior Championship, the Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship, and the Canadian Junior Boys Championship; and

Such other competitions as the Executive Committee shall determine.

2. Selection Criteria - NB Provincial Quota Positions:

A) Membership: Golfers Must:

In the particular year, be a member in good standing of the NBGA, including NBGA Public Players;

Be an amateur golfer (refer to the Rules of Amateur Status).

B) Playing Qualification:

Subject to subparagraph c, the primary basis of quota position selection will be determined by the player's competitive results in those events designated annually by the Executive Committee. Generally these events are events administered by the NBGA; provided that in a given year and in extreme circumstances, the Executive Committee may designate other selected events to determine a player's competitive results. The Executive committee will publish the playing qualification standards in the Player's Tournament Handbooks.

C) Conduct Unbecoming a Golfer:

Selection to an NBGA quota position is intended to be an honor given to golfers who have distinguished themselves through playing qualifications and otherwise have established themselves as players who represent the integrity of the game of golf. The Executive Committee reserves the right in situations where a golfer has otherwise qualified for quota position selection on the basis of his/her competitive playing results, to not select that person if that person has in some way been guilty of conduct unbecoming a golfer. For such purposes "conduct unbecoming a golfer" includes breaches of golf etiquette, improper on course conduct, disrespect for fellow competitors, officials and volunteers and the failure to adhere to team member regulations as established by the NBGA.

3. Financial Commitment

Players will be expected to assume responsibility for ALL expenses incurred as a result of attending any National, or regional, Champonships, as well as any, and all, registration fees that may be put in place by the host committee.
