What is the EWGA Champions Cup?
The EWGA Champions Cup is a Team Match Play Competition consisting of 18 holes of Four Ball and 18 holes of singles match play held over 2 stages: 4 Regional Qualifiers and a National Championship. Chapters are divided into 8 regions, and each chapter must qualify for advancement out of their respective Regional Qualifier, which hosts 2 out of the 8 regions, during the month of September. The Atlanta Chapter is in the Atlantic/Southern Region. Click here to see the Regional breakdown for all chapters.
Teams with the highest number of points earned by their matches in the Regional Qualifiers will advance to the National Championship on November 8-11, 2012 at Sycuan Resort in El Cajon, California.
