Chapter Championship – Saturday July 16, 2016

Waterloo Region and Golden Horseshoe Chapters are excited to be heading into another year for EWGA Chapter Championship.  Come out and join us at Doon Valley Golf Course in Kitchener.

This will be primarily a competitive event.  Again this year, we will provide spaces for ladies wishing to participate on the fun side.  This is for members who may not be ready for the competitive aspect or who still want to golf simply for the fun of it. Please indicate your interest in either the competitive or fun stream to the Championship Director; the contact information is listed below. For more detailed information click here.

We will again be in need of volunteers for this event as there are a number of tasks that happen behind the scenes in order to make the event possible.

An official EWGA or GAO Handicap Factor is required to participate in the competitive format. Click here if you need help accessing your handicap.

There will be two types of competitions:

Individual Stroke Play in 5 flights  Detailed Stroke Play
