A few years ago, the EWGA began a regional and national match play
competition, named the EWGA Cup. Seattle EWGA has had a team competing each of the
past 3 years, finishing SECOND overall last year! Captain Pam Gale has another stellar team ready to go this year for the 2014 EWGA Cup.
The 2013 Emerald City Stix Chix took second place nationally in the EWGA Cup!
Each team is made up of eight women. Both the regional and national events are two
Day One: Four –Ball, a match in which two players from team A each play their own ball against
two players from team B playing their own balls. Who ever has the lowest net score for that
hole wins a point for their team. Points
are awarded by hole, the match is won by winning the most points.
Two: Singles match play – one-on-one
play, points awarded by winning the hole.
There are two
stages of this competition, beginning with Cup Qualifiers at various locations across the US.
Seattle’s qualifying event is September 13-14 at the Westin Mission Hills
Course, Rancho Mirage, California
The top teams
from each Cup Qualifier then meet at
the EWGA Cup Championship December
7-8 at Troon North Golf Club, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
