Player Registration - Patriot All-America and The Thunderbolt


Entry to both the Patriot All-America (men and women) and the Thunderbolt are by invitation only (see eligibility requirements below).

Invitations are extended by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). Any questions should be directed to Dustin Roberts ([email protected]).

Invitations will be sent by the GCAA to eligible individuals (via the player’s college coach) beginning in August. Once the player accepts the invitation to compete in the Championship, a Participation Agreement will be sent to him/her via DocuSign. Once that is signed and returned, we will send you a direct link to the registration page.
