The British Championship is a two-day major event (minimum B Tier) consisting of 3 18-hole rounds and a final on, or around, the 3rd or 4th weekend of August.

Players will qualify/be invited to attend based on the position within the Tour points races for each division (top 10)

Players can compete in multiple divisions but will have to choose which division they wish to compete at BC at the end of the season (after the British Open)  

Subject to PDGA rules on divisions in points based series see Section 2.02 B of the competition manual https://www.pdga.com/rules/competition-manual/202

All players must Pre - Register for the British Championships prior to the British open to be considered for qualification.

Players finishing outside the top 10 in their division will be offered a place if higher placed players decline their spot in that division.

Unfiled places from undersubscribed divisions (eg. juniors) will be assigned to the side event for non-qualified players.  

Players outside the top 10 from oversubscribed divisions will compete in the side event subject to capacity.

Players in the side event will have the same tournament experience although will compete in a separate event and will not be crowned a divisional british champion.
