The 2018 OGA Tour Championship is invitation only based off of the season points leaders.
Invitations will be extended to the top 20 players in the Individual Series.
- Individual: Open Division
- Individual: Senior Division
Invitations will be extended to the Top 10 players on the points list. It is assumed, the qualifying player will play with the same partner in the Championship as played with during the season.
If a qualifying player had multiple playing partners during the season, the qualifying player must identify which player he/she would like to play with at the Championship.
If no playing partners are available, the new playing partner must have played in at least 1 OGA Tour event.
If after 10 players on the points list we do not have 10 teams, we will move down the points list until we have 10 teams that have accepted the invitation. A maximum of 10 teams per division will play in the OGA Tour Championship.

Players must have an active USGA Handicap Index to participate in the net portion of the competition. Players may elect to participate without a handicap but are NOT eligible for net competition and will compete in "flight one" of the gross competition. Handicaps are reduced according to USGA recommendations for Four-Ball competitions.
- Men will receive 90% of their course handicap/Women will receive 95% of their course handicap.
- In addition, if the difference between two players on the same side exceeds 8 strokes, an additional 10% reduction will be applied to both player's course handicap.
OGA Net Performance Points Adjustment (KTPS)
The OGA Tournament Committee has instituted a policy by which they reserve the right to adjust the Course Handicap of any competitor in future competitions. This Policy is based on a modification of the Knuth Tournament Performance Points System (KTPS) as licensed from Dean Knuth.
A reduction of a competitor’s Course Handicap will be based on the following criteria:
High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 81 participants or more in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 12, 2nd = 10, 3rd = 8, 4th = 6, 5th = 4.
High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 40 - 80 participants in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 8, 2nd = 6, 3rd = 4, 4th = 2.
High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 20 - 39 participants in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 6, 2nd = 4, 3rd = 2.
High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 1 - 19 participants in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 4, 2nd = 2.
High finishes in any Net portion of an 18 hole OGA competition (OGA Tour – Individual Series) during a one year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 3, 2nd = 2, 3rd = 1.
High finishes in any Net portion of an 18 hole OGA competition (OGA Tour – Partner Series) during a one year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1 – 9 teams 1st = 3, 10 – 19 teams 1st = 3, 2nd = 2, and 20+ teams 1st = 3, 2nd = 2, 3rd = 1.
Any contestant who accumulates 17 points over the stated period may have their Course Handicap reduced by 1 stroke for use during the competition.
Any contestant who accumulates more than 17 points during the stated period will have their Course Handicap reduced an additional 1 stroke for each additional two points accumulated.
