Girls 15-18 Entrance Criteria

   *Due to the many cancelations of events in 2020, including the Scott Robertson Memorial, caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made consolations to the 2021 entrance criteria. Those meeting entrance criteria in 2020 will be allowed to use that criteria for application to the 2021 Scott Robertson Memorial. (Excluding criteria for NJGS or Golfweek rankings from 2020.)  We will only be using the rankings as stated in the criteria below. Anyone that is 19 years of age or enrolled in college at the time of the 2021 Scott Robertson Memorial will not be eligible.

The 2021 SRM field will consist of approximately 35 players from the categories below, including tournament committee special exemptions (39 total including the 4 qualifier spots).  Spots will be filled by applicants from these categories in numerical order.  Once the field is full (accepting applicants in category 1 first, 2 next, and so on) applicants from lower categories will not gain entry unless earning a spot through one of the qualifying rounds, with only the oldest age divisions considered(finals only, no qualifiers/sectionals).

Additions:

A. The entry committee reserves the right to exempt& accept additional players

that do not meet the specified criteria.

B. Anyone not in the top 35 of the listed entrance criteria can still gain entry through one of  two 18 hole qualifiers:

♦ Naples, FL TBD (2 spots available)

♦Roanoke, VA April 24th (2 spots available)

*Each player is allowed only one qualifying attempt.

(Please note that there will only be one qualifier date held at Roanoke Country Club this year.)

 

Example: If 33 players apply from the first 7 categories, all of those applicants will be accepted (this includes any special exemptions granted by the entry committee).  If eight other players have applied from category 8, then the first two of those will be accepted (based on the order of the criteria) to reach 35 total.  The six other players in category 8 not chosen and the remaining players that meet the lower criteria will be ranked in order by the committee as alternates and will then only earn entry through a qualifier, or if their alternate spot is needed.  The four spots being held for the qualifiers will bring the field to a total of 39 players.  The field size may be reduced if the number of applicants from the nine categories is less than 35 (in that case, the entry committee reserves the right to fill out the field with players not meeting any of the entrance criteria, and will base selections on a review of player applications).  Each player’s position within each category is determined by the order of each tournament listed, and all ties will be broken based on the players ranking.

 

Note:   The SRM entry committee reviews the exemption criteria yearly and makes changes as necessary.

All entry committee decisions are final.
