There will be a gross and nett Order of Merit, with the top 10 boys and top 10 girls in each category qualifying for the Grand Final.
The Order of Merit winners will be determined by the accumulation of points from a player's best 5 scores from the Junior Open competitions and the NGL County Championship added to the Grand Final results. Additional prizes awarded the the Grand Final winners. Points are awarded to the top 20 Northamptonshire players (1st place receiving 20 points, 2nd 19 points and so on down to 20th place who receives 1 point). The only exception to this is the Junior County Championship where the top 30 will receive points (1st place receiving 30 points, 29 points for 2nd and so on down to 30th who receives 1). In addition, every player who hands in a completed scorecard will receive 1 point.
If a player finishes in the Top 10 for both Orders of Merit, they will qualify for the Grand Final with their gross Order of Merit performance, and their nett place in the Grand Final will be made available to the next best performing player, for example the player finishing 11th nett.
All 18 hole competitions are played to the Northamptonshire Golf Hard Card plus any local rules of the host club. All competitions will be qualifying competitions unless exceptional conditions prevail on the day.
All Order of Merit Opens consist of 18 holes medal play, from tees chosen by the host club, with handicap INDEX limits up to 28.4 for boys and 36.4 for girls. The Junior County Championship is 36 holes medal play.
