The BMG CUP Series was formed as a FedEX Cup style points series for amateur golfers. The amateur golf series is made up of three events beginning with the Flagstick Shootout played at Smuggler’s Glen Golf Course, moves to the Flagstick Open at eQuinelle and finishes with the Flagstick BCC Open at Brockville Country Club.
Players must participate in two of the three Series event to be eligible for the season point title and the BMG CUP. In the season opening Flagstick Shootout the field is equal as there are no flights therefore only overall points are awarded. The Flagstick Open and the Flagstick BCC Open are full A,B,C,D flighted events and points are awarded for a players position in the field. This format ensures that players will have an opportunity to win the BMG CUP regardless of their flight.
