New season & exciting new format!

The key changes are aimed at opening up the Med Golf Masters to more players, making the final Masters day a much bigger & better event.  

The category limits will be moved, handicaps reviewed and there will be a change in the way that scores affect handicaps

We will be having 7 individual events starting at El Paraiso on 15th September. The full fixture list will be published on the Med Golf website


Over 40% of the players last year were in Category 2. To create a more balanced spread, handicap category limits will be changed as follows:

  • Category 1:  up to 13
  • Category 2: 14 – 21
  • Category 3: 22 -30

Maximum handicaps: 30 for men and 36 for ladies.

Event Format

Under the current system only 10 players can qualify for the Med Golf Masters, the new format will potentially allow 38 players to qualify. The winner of each event and the winners of each category will qualify for the Masters (28 players). Moreover, the current Order of Merit will be retained with the top ten also qualifying as in previous years

We look forward to seeing you at the first event of the season, The Famous Grouse Trophy held at El Paraiso on the 15th  of September.

Designed in 1973 by Gary Player, El Paraiso is one of the most established courses on the Costa del Sol. Set out in the peaceful El Paraiso valley with the backdrop of the majestic ‘La Concha’ mountain to the north and the sparkling Mediterranean to the south, El Paraiso has the envious reputation of providing one of the best championship course layouts on the coast, which draws players back time and time again.
