*Four Ball Match Play - A match in which two players (a side) play their better ball against the better ball of two other players (the opposing side).
All players play their own ball. The lower net score of the two players is the team score on the hole.
**Singles Match Play - A match in which one player plays against another player. Scoring is determined by a hole-by-hole competition.
Each team is comprised of 8 women. Last year 2 teams from the Boston Chapter participated in the Northeast Regional Qualifier. The number of teams formed in 2017 will be based on the number of people committed to participating.
Due to the popularity of this event and the limited number of positions available, please sign up for this event early so we know how many are interested and can form as many teams of 8 as possible.
Each Regional Qualifier is limited to 16 teams. We currently have players interested in competing in the Northeast Region (NJ). We will begin forming teams in late March. Last year some qualifiers filled quickly. It is possible that the Northeast Qualifier could fill up and the Boston Chapter may have to qualify in a different region.
