A total of 48 players are representing nine CGA Member Clubs in the field this week. The field includes three-time champions, Pinehurst Country Club and three-time runners-up, Cowan’s Ford Country Club. Each club will enter two, two-woman sides each day. Each round’s score is the aggregate of the two, two-woman sides. Club Teams may choose to compete in the Championship Division (gross scores only) or the Carolinas Division (net scores only). The overall champion will come from the Championship Division.

Round 1: Two-woman captain’s choice – each player tees off, then the team selects the best shot and each player hits the next shot from that spot and subsequently selected spots until the ball is holed. In the Carolinas Division, handicap strokes for the side are allocated based on 35% of the A player’s course handicap and 15% of the B player’s course handicap.

Round 2: Four-ball stroke play (better ball of two). In the Carolinas Division, players receive 85% of their course handicaps.

Round 3: Pinehurst alternate shot – each player tees off, then players switch balls and proceed to hit their partner’s ball on the second shot, then the side selects the ball to be played. Players then alternate shots from there until the ball is holed. In the Carolinas Division, handicap strokes for the side are allocated based on 60% of the A player’s course handicap and 40% of the B player’s course handicap.


Flights: Teams in the Carolinas Division will be flighted based on 36-hole club team scores.
