Chapter Championship

2017 Sacramento Chapter Championship – Competitor Information 

The EWGA Championship started in 1995.  It has grown to be the largest women’s amateur golf competition in the world and we want YOU to be a part of the fun and excitement.  Members of all skill levels are encouraged to compete so give the Championship a try and put your game to the test!


The EWGA Championship offers two different competitive formats: Stroke Play Competition and Inter-Chapter Team Scramble Competition. You select the competitive format that best fits your game, personality and skill level.


Stroke play competitors play in one of five flights at the Chapter Championship qualifying event based upon their USGA Handicap Index.

Flight    Handicap Range 
Championship    0.0 to 12.0 
First   12.1 to 19.0
Second   19.1 to 25.0
Third   25.1 to 32.0
Fourth   32.1 to 40.4



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. 


  • Be a female, EWGA member in good standing*
  • Have a verifiable USGA Handicap Index and have an equivalent of two 18-hole scores posted to your handicap record in the current year, prior to the handicap cut-off date for their respective Chapter Championship
  • Be an amateur golfer as defined by USGA Rules of Amateur Status
