Entry Fee: $500 (per team)

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: Entries will be accepted by order of entry except if the event is oversubscribed in the first 24 hours. In this case, the field will be filled by blind draw from the entries returned during the first 24 hours. Any team not drawn will be placed on the waiting list in blind draw order. All subsequent entries will be placed on the waiting list in order of entry. The teams will be pre-flighted into flights of six (6) based on the combined team handicap index. 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, a partnership with handicaps of 12 and 22, would be adjusted to a 12 and 20. April 10, 2024, handicap index will be used for flights and scoring. 

Championship Information

Format/Field Size: 45 holes of Round Robin Net Four-Ball Match Play. Two competitors play as partners in a 9-hole match against two other competitors playing as partners, with each player playing her own ball. The lowest net score of the partners is the score for the hole. Each hole will be worth 2 points, a tie will be worth 1 point. The team with the most points after the 45 holes will be the flight winner. The teams will be pre-flighted into flights of six (6) based on the combined team handicap index. Maximum spread of partners’ index of 8.0 will be used for the purpose of creating flights and scoring. Field size limited to 48 teams.

In the case of a BYE in a flight, the team will compete against par to earn points.

The April 10, 2024, WHS Handicap Index will be used for flights and scoring.
