Terms & Conditions

The Jurassic Coast Golf Tournament will be played along the Dorset coast on three different golf courses, namely Came Down GC, Lyme Regis GC and Bridport & West Dorset GC on three consecutive days in mid-June every year.


Players will enter as a pair. Entry can only be made online via the website.

Entry Fee

The entry fee covers three rounds of golf and refreshments before and after your round. There will be three daily prizes at each course and five overall prizes in the tournament.

Tournament Format

The tournament will be a pairs competition run on the Stableford scoring system using full handicap allowances based on your handicap index as of the previous Wednesday midnight.

Day 1 will be a Better-Ball competition, Day 2 Greensomes, Day 3 Foursomes.

The men’s card will be used for scoring purposes when any mixed team is playing Greensomes and Foursomes. The lady member of the team will be afforded adjustment shots as calculated by the World Handicap System.

Men will play from the Yellow tees and Ladies from the Red tees except at Bridport where the tee colours are Orange and Light blue respectively. In the event of a dispute arising from an alleged golf rules infringement, the decision of the committee is final and binding.


  • All entrants must be members of golf clubs recognised by and affiliated to their country’s governing body. However, we will accept 2 teams from the Golf Club of Great Britain and 2 teams from Hannah’s Appeal.
  • All entrants must be amateur players and have an official WHS handicap index as of midnight on the previous Wednesday.
  • No handicap index adjustments will be made during the tournament.
  • Any combination of any gender may enter.
  • All entrants must be 18 or over on entry.
  • The closing date for entries is one calendar month before the start of the tournament. Therefore the closing date is 24th May 2024. Entries received after that date will be placed on a standby list.
  • If withdrawals are notified to the tournament director before the closing date 50% of the entry fee will be refunded. Withdrawals notified after the closing date will not be eligible for a refund. However, under certain circumstances, the tournament director has the discretion of offering a team whose withdrawal was received after the closing date a roll-over (once only) to the following year.
  • In the event that the limit of 72 pairs is reached before the closing date, any entries after that point will be placed on a standby list. Those on the list will be offered a vacant place in the tournament caused by a withdrawal on a first come – first served basis. Those on the list who fail to gain a place in the tournament will be given a full refund of the entry fee.
  • No refunds will be available should any golf be cancelled due to the weather.

All entrants are strongly advised to have their own golfers insurance.

That was the best yet and you all deserve the most fulsome praise and congratulations. The atmosphere buzzed throughout, a true measure of how participants are enjoying the tournament and which cannot be faked. Good golf, good courses, good weather, but above all excellent organisation both before and during the event, whatever the problems. You have given everyone an experience they will remember with a feeling of pleasure and goodwill.

Thank you so much for a fabulous 3 days and for the beautiful weather you organised. We thoroughly enjoyed the golf, the camaraderie ( special thanks to a chap who found my ball in long grass and left a little marker there for me!) and the hospitality at each of the clubs. The administration was seamless and gave all the players a wonderful golfing experience.

We just wanted to thank you very much for making this year’s JCGT such an enjoyable event despite the efforts of the Coronavirus pandemic to scupper it for everyone.

…we really had a wonderful time in the sunshine and were made to feel very welcome at all the venues.

Another great event, so well done to you and your team. We know from experience that the smoother an event appears on the surface, the more that folk will have been furiously paddling in the background. I’ll bet we cannot begin to imagine it!
