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 low Handicap Index of the two partners and include gross and net prizes. Most events are a shotgun start and all events 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 also receives 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. The top 52-ranked teams (combined ranking of the partners) that register for the tournament will gain entrance to the Carolinas Cup Tournament, held at Pinehurst Resort on December 15, 2020. First place gross and net winners in each flight at each Ladies' Four-Ball Play Day will be eligible for the Ladies' Four-Ball Play Days Tournament of Champions, held at Kiawah Island Resort on December 9-10, 2020.
