    My country club may be trying out pay-to-enter tournaments. The options for payouts are (1) winner take all, (2) top 3 and (3) top 10. My question is, if "top 10" is selected and less than 10 play, is the prize fund recalculated or if for example only 6 play, the 7-10 monies are forfeited? Thanks!

    What are the payout rules for a Country Club Tournament?

    If your club has a pay-to-enter tournament or a tournament with a credit purse, WGT will pay out 80% of the total purse to the winners of each tournament. The structure of how WGT awards credit prizes from a country club are determined by the tournament creator when setting up the tournament.

    Country Clubs tournaments can be set up with one of the following award structures:

    • Winner Take All - The entrant who comes in first place will win the entire purse
    • Top 3 - 1st Place: 55% of the purse, 2nd Place: 30% of the purse 3rd Place: 15% of the purse
    • Top 10 - 1st-10th place will receive a payout in the following percentages: 40%, 20%, 10%, 9%, 6%, 5%, 4%, 3%, 2%, 1%

    Tiebreakers in Country Club Tournaments follow the normal tiebreaker structure. Players must complete the tournament to be eligible for prizes.

    That doesn’t really answer his question about what happens if you choose the 19 player pay out and less than 10 people enter.

    pearljammmmer, I cannot personally answer your question as I don’t know but hopefully someone who does can respond. 
    The only suggestion I can give is to possibly make a quick one day tourney and have just a few people play it and see what happens?

    Unfortunately, the rules and FAQ don't tell anything about it.

    From a former FAQ version, I saved the "70 payout" rules, and they delt with an incomplete field with the general statement

    "The entire tournament purse will be paid out regardless of how many entrants there are in the tournament."

    and a detailled description how they would proceed.

    In their texts about CC tournament payouts, there was no such text. Thus, I'm guessing that the unclaimed monies in CC tourneys might always have been forfeited.

    Thanks for the replies, they are appreciated. I think we'll take Marchie's suggestion and try a 10 player payout tournament and see what happens if less than 10 play.

    If you select top 10 and only 5 players play, the FULL PRIZE will be payed out to those top 5 with the appropriate percentages.
