The Series, currently in its 2nd year, is open to all players who would like to participate and no pre-requirements are necessary to sign up. The format was modified this past year due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the first stage of qualifying was cancelled.  We kicked off 2021 in a big way to build on the success of this past year and the broadcast of the Championship, we allowed the first 50 players to sign up during a limited time period  for any Regional  tournament on our schedule.


Starting January 2021, players will qualify at the local level by playing in 18 hole tournaments or by playing in other local  Partner tournaments. These partner events will be hosted by PGA Sections , State Golf Associations and or by a select few independent tours that the NB3 has partnered with in the upcoming year. Whether you play in a NB3 tournament or a partner event,  the player’s 18 hole score will determine eligibility  into one our regional tournaments. At each one of these local tournaments there will a set number of players that will qualify to make to the Regional level.   The maximum number of players will vary slightly depending on the regional tournament . We will take anywhere between 120 to 180 players at our Regionals.  From our regional tournaments across the county we will qualify and invite  approximately 150 players in total to our 54 hole championship in November.  All those that earn the invitation will be guaranteed to play 54 holes and be treated to a one of a kind Championship that will be broadcasted for 2 hours on the Golf Channel.  The entry fee will be free to them and discounts will be provided to all the players to stay at the hosting resort.


By referring to our schedule of events you will be able to determine how may qualifying spots by division are awarded at each stage of competition.
