Eligibility: Entries are open to female amateur golfers with a certified WHS Handicap Index. Please reference TGA Women’s Competition Policies for further details, including policies and procedures, and terms of competition.

Entry Procedure: The field will be established in the order in which entries are received. In the event the championship becomes over-subscribed, acceptance of entries will be based on the lowest combined team WHS Handicap Index as of Wednesday, July 17. HANDICAP POLICY: If a partnership has a handicap difference of more than 8 strokes, the higher handicap will be adjusted down to create an 8-stroke difference. For example, if a partnership has a 12 and a 22, we will adjust it 12 and 20 for the event. July 17 handicap index will be used.

Championship Information

Format/Field Size: Play will be contested over 36 Holes of Four-Ball Stroke Play. The field is limited to 50 teams.

Divisions: The field will be split up into two divisions; Championship and Flights. The ten (10) teams with the lowest combined handicap indexes will be required to play from the championship tees. Those who do not wish to play in the championship division will be pre-flighted based on their combined handicap indexes. The maximum spread of partners’ index of 8.0 will be used for the purpose of creating flights.
