To register for the Dutch Amateur Championship the handicap limits are 3.0 for men and 5.0 for women.

The field consists of 42 ladies and 78 men. The final field is divided in different categories: national dutch rankings based on age, wildcards and the largest category based on handicap.

In recent years the minimum handicap to enter the tournament for men was around + 1,0 and for women around handicap 3,0. There will be a waiting list for players that are not in the final field. This list is based on handicap and the player with the best handicap will enter the tournament in case of withdrawals.
