The cut-off date of the qualification to the final tournament is about 2 to 3 weeks before the final tournament. Please refer to the tournament calendar. Tournaments which take place after the cut-off date are counted towards the score of the next season.
The period of notice is three weeks (21 days) before end of season. If you do not cancel your participation in the Strawberry Tour, your registration will be renewed automatically and you will receive an invoice.

- At the beginning of every year (usually February) via postal service.
- If you join during a season, you will get the card about one to two weeks after we received your payment.
- Generally the card is not needed to participate in tournaments, what is more important is that you are listed in the players list.
How is my score and my handicap administered?
- If you are playing a tournament in an austrian Golf Club, your score will be registered automatically.
- If you are playing a tournament outside of Austria, please make sure, that your name on the tournament registration (starting list) is spelled exactly the same as on the Strawberry Tour scoreboard (player's list). After a tournament please check that your score is reflected in the Strawberry Tour scoreboard. The Strawberry Tour administers their scoreboard, however your handicap is administered by your home Golf Club.
To determine which handicap-group you are in, your handicap at the day of registration for the Strawberry Tour is used, which does not change during the season.
