The tournament series is open to golfers who are members of an internationally recognised national association through their golf club. The tournament is divided into three handicap classes: Men A (up to handicap 12), Men B (handicap 13 to 28), Ladies (up to handicap 28). Each nation determines a winner in each category at qualification tournaments in the respective home countries, organised by BMW Dealerships. The number and format of these qualification tournaments can vary in the individual countries. However, one aspect remains the same in all participating nations: the victorious trio travels to the World Final, which is played at one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world.
