of members from the chapters in Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Tennessee. Teams from the "Carolinas" and H.O.T.S. will compete head to head in a one day match play event, with the team winning the most matches taking home the coveted Dixie Cup!

Chapter Match Play Event
 Our popular annual event has grown over the past 3 years and we have made a few changes to accommodate even more participants. Firstly, there will be 2 Flights with a Trophy for the winner of each flight and a plaque for the winner of the Consolation Round in each flight. Secondly, kick-off is a little later this year and the match play will run into the Autumn months.  

If you haven't tried Match Play before, I hope you give it a try.  It is yet another way to enjoy the game of golf and get to know some of our fellow members better!  You will need to establish a handicap to participate and 5 recorded scores within the past year so that it is equitable for all participants.


Here are the details of the Match Play, Q&A Form, Flight 1 Schedule, Flight 2 Schedule and Consolation Round Schedule.  If you have any questions, please email Dianne Doherty at diannekd@gmail.com.
Chapter Cup Event
Our 2nd Annual 2-day Cup Event is scheduled for Saturday, September 26th at Savannah Quarters and Sunday, September 27th at Crosswinds Golf Course.  Can the Magnolia Team retain the Cup or will the Wisteria Team take it away this year?  Click here for the general details of the event, more to come soon.  If you weren't on a team last year, you can sign up to play this year!

Handicap & Education

HANDICAP, RULES, ETIQUETTE

Handicap Information
We encourage all our members to have a handicap established. Although it's not required, your EWGA membership includes a complimentary Handicap System which tracks your scores and index via their website. Establishing your handicap and posting scores regularly, will allow you to play in some EWGA events (Championship, Match Play, Tournaments, etc.). Our regular Saturday chapter outings do not require a handicap to play.

If you do not use the EWGA site to post your scores, please let our Handicap Chair know by emailing Dianne Doherty at handicap@ewga-savhh.com.
- Post Your Score with EWGA
- Verify Another Handicap

Bettering your game with education is important to every golfer.  We encourage you to view the information below and reach out to our Golf Education team, Susan Deal (Director) for information or your specific needs to golfeducation@ewga-savhh.com
