Tournament Highlights

CWGA Tournaments - New Formats This Year 

CWGA Championship at The Golf Club of Avon on June 5th-8th 

The Founders Cup was limited to those with a handicap index between 13.0 to 23.5, and entries could be made directly to the Founders Cup Division. Anyone with a handicap index 23.5 or lower could enter the Championship division.

Solheim at Highfield on June 18th 

Registered players were divided into two teams (Red Team and Blue Team) and played three 9-hole matches: best-ball, alternate shot, and scramble. Each match was played as a two-person team, Red vs. Blue.

Pictured at right are some of the members of the winning Blue team. The final score was 123.5 for the Blue team and 92.5 for the Red team.

The Medallion at The Patterson Club on September 20th 

This tournament will be scored a little differently than in past years. Rather than total strokes, the winning team will be the team with the highest aggregate Stableford score.

More information on these three tournaments as well as the rest of the schedule are available by clicking on the tournament name in the Tournament Calendar.

CSGA Tournaments

Connecticut Women's Open
Innis Arden is an exceptional site for the CT Women's Open and the CSGA is making this a 20th Anniversary to remember! They have two four-star hotels with rooms blocked off for the event at substantial discounts to make this a perfect Ladies Golf Getaway! Last year the out-of-state participation exceeded the in-state and they are hoping to broaden the participation and have a strong contingent from CT representing CT in our own Women's Open.

CT Women's Tournament of Champions
The eligibility for the CT Women's Tournament of Champions has been widely expanded from just 18-hole Club Champions to include current or former Champions from a variety of tournaments. For the CWGA, these titles include the Individual, Junior, Senior and Legends Championships as well as all Endicott Cup Individual Champions from CT.

CSGA Women's Series
Everyone who signs up by the Early Bird Registration deadlines for the CSGA Women's Series (i.e. Open, TOC, and Am) will receive a complimentary gift! Any player that participates in two of the three events in the Women's Series will be eligible for a grand prize drawing! Click here for more information on the CSGA Women's Series.
