Divisions

Championship Division
For individuals interested in competing for the Women's Match Play Championship title. The maximum field size will be 72 players. Golfers will participate in an 18-hole stroke play qualifier to determine the 32-player Championship match play bracket. Those not in the top 32 will not advance to match play and will be eliminated. Course set-up for the Championship Division will be between 5,800-6,000 yards.

Tournament Division (Gross and Net)

The maximum field size will be 32 players. The Tournament Division offers either Gross or Net competition. Course set-up for the Tournament Division will be from a forward set of tees.

The Gross competition will consist of a single 8 player bracket based on order of entry. Those that register for Gross will compete in an 18-hole stroke play qualifier to determine seeds for the match play portion.

The Net competition will consist of three 8 player brackets (24 players) based on order of entry. Those that register for Net will be placed in an 8 player bracket based on handicap index and will compete in an 18-hole stroke play qualifier to determine seeds within their bracket for the match play portion. Both the qualifier and subsequent matches will be based on Net scoring.
