About the Race to the Carolinas Cup and Ladies' Four-Ball Play Days

The Race to the Carolinas Cup is a season-long points competition in which players accumulate points based on team finish and participation in CGA Ladies’ Four-Ball Play Days.

Four-Ball Play Days are ladies-only four-ball (better ball) competitions that are conducted at member clubs across North and South Carolina. Play Days are designed for players of all skill levels and abilities. These events are flighted by team Handicap Index and include gross and net prizes. Most events will be a shotgun start and all events will include lunch.

Every team at every Four-Ball Play Day earns points in the Race to the Carolinas Cup based on their gross or net finish in their respective flight. Each team will also receive participation points. Team points will be split between players to apply to each player’s individual standing in the Race to the Carolinas Cup. Players may play with any partner in any of the play days and earn points toward her individual standing. At the end of the Race to the Carolinas Cup regular season, the player with the most points will be named the Race to the Carolinas Cup champion. This award will be given at the year-end Carolinas Cup Tournament. Players in the Top 50 of the Race to the Carolinas Cup standings, as well as each gross and net flight winners at every play day, will be invited to participate in the Carolinas Cup Tournament at Kiawah Island Resort (Ocean). Players may compete with any partner that is also eligible for the tournament. The Carolinas Cup Tournament will be held on December 2, 2019 and will include a banquet and luncheon to celebrate the Race to the Carolinas Cup Champion as well as the Carolinas Cup Tournament winners.
