The Mesquite Amateur consists of a five-day 54-hole, net, stoke play tournament. Participants compete against a field of players with a similar handicap. There is also a practice round held on the first day of the event (practice round is not included in entry and the individual must make their own practice round arrangements). Finalist rankings will be determined by comparing the three-day cumulative score. The top four participants from each flight will compete in the 18-hole championship round at the CasaBlanca Golf Club. USGA rules will govern the play.
