Session 1 League Registration Open!

Weekly league registration for session 1 is open now!

Check out our league page for more details. 

Interested in Trying Match Play?

Match Play is a format where, instead of  track of each of your strokes for the round, you keep track of the holes that you win or lose.  The team who wins the most holes, wins the match!  Many players find Match Play to be a fun way to compete since one “blow-up hole” doesn’t mean you’re out of the match. 

1.  Two person teams will be placed in a double elimination brackets.  So you are guaranteed 2 matches and it may be possible to lose a match and still win the tournament!  

2.  Once registration is over we will send out your bracket information and specific procedures for setting up your matches and for reporting results of the matches.   

3.  The first round will need to be completed by May 31th, the second round by June 30st. Each round will be one month in duration, length of bracket depends on how many teams sign up.

Register here by finding a playing partner or by registering as an individual and being paired up by the coordinator.

Cost is $10 per person ($20 per team) into a prize fund and providing your handicaps and noting who your partner is. 

 

Seattle Virtual League 2016

SEATTLE VIRTUAL LEAGUE 2016

 

Welcome to the EWGA Seattle Chapter’s Virtual League. Our Virtual League affords members another opportunity to play competitive golf in a fun environment. Players will compete within two to three flights based on their handicaps. The league is designed to help new and veteran golfers play in a slightly competitive, yet friendly environment.

Players of all skill levels are welcome. To be eligible, you simply need to have a current handicap index and be a current member of the Seattle Chapter.  As part of your EWGA membership you have free online access to our handicap index system called GN21. Or if you already maintain your index on another system, that is fine as well. Our local Handicap Chair, Lisa Scott, can assist you with any questions. Email Lisa at lm_scott_@hotmail.com.

To be eligible for year-end prizes, you are required to play a minimum of five of the total Seattle stroke play events throughout the calendar year. Once you sign up for the Virtual League, you are eligible to start the friendly competition.   You will need to write on your scorecard VL for virtual league events. Check our website and E-Blast for our events schedule.
