TEAM SCRAMBLE

Chapter scramble teams consist of four (4) women who meet the eligibility requirements to play in the EWGA Championship.  The team “handicap factor” is established based on the USGA Handicap Index of all four players.

ABOUT 2018 COMPETITIVE LADDER

The San Diego Chapter is using a competitive ladder to field our competitive events:  the California Cup and the EWGA Cup.  The competitive ladder is based on how you play against your course handicap at our 18 hole EWGA events. There is sign-up sheet to enter your score and your course handicap at the end of each round.

The “over/under par” numbers indicate “net par”, your gross score compared to the course par plus your handicap (HC).  If the % shown is negative, it means the player has played on average below her HC, if the % is positive, the player has played over her HC. 

The key to winning competitive events is to PLAY TO YOUR HANDICAP and you will win most of the time!!!  For the 2018 season, we are going to base the ladder on the last 15 events played (not just within the year) and you must play at least 4 of those events to qualify.
