Overview

The Women's 18-Hole Section holds weekly tournaments on Tuesday mornings. These are played in a variety of formats; some are holiday-themed. Four of these tournaments constitute our majors: the Handicap Tournament, the Club Championship, the Senior Club Championship and the Golden Girls/Baby Boomer Challenge. In addition, the club organizes competitions that combine scores over several weeks or months of play.

Dates

The Handicap Tournament is usually played in May, the Club Championship in September. The Senior Club Championship is most often held in June and played in conjunction with the Golden Girls/Baby Boomer Challenge. A Mixed Invitational is the first Sunday in August. The Charity Tournament, usually held late summer, raises funds that are donated to that year's chosen charity. Our Women's Invitational is a two-day event in early October.

Handicap Tournament

This major tournament is an individual net match play competition over four days in May. The winner's name is added to Handicap Tournament plaque in the Clubhouse Hall of Fame.

Club Championship Tournament

This major tournament is an individual 54-hole stroke play competition over three days in September. The Club Champion is the player with the lowest gross score. Her name is added to the Club Championship plaque in the Clubhouse Hall of Champions. The Club Champion and Runner-Up are both eligible to play in WGANC's Tournament of Champions.

Senior Women's Championship

The senior woman with the lowest net score in this annual tournament is the Senior Women's Champion. She will have her name on the Senior Women's Championship plaque and wears the green vest, which she keeps for a year.

The Senior Championship Tournament is an individual event, which runs simultaneously with the Golden Girls-Baby Boomers Challenge. The Challenge is a competition between the Golden Girls (age 65 and older) and the non-senior women, the Baby Boomers (age under 65). The non-senior woman with the low net wins a prize and keeps the colorful purple vest for a year. She and the Senior Champion become the chairpersons for the Senior Championship and the Golden Girls-Baby Boomers Challenge the next year. The chairpersons determine the format for the Challenge.
