The Champions Cup is a two-day team tournament. Teams are comprised of eight members. Regional qualifiers determine which teams advance to the finals, and teams are free to play in any regional qualifier they choose. Our Chapter will participate in the Northeast Regional qualifier on September 15-16 at Stockton Seaview Golf Club in Galloway, New Jersey. The finals will be held on November 2-3 at Horseshoe Bay Resort in Horseshoe Bay, Texas. Log onto https://e-ewgacup.golfgenius.com/pages/1274166 for more information.
Two formats are played at the Cup -- four ball match play and individual match play. To be eligible to compete, you must have a verifiable USGA handicap index and at least three 18-hole scores (or equivalent) posted to your 2018 handicap record by the regional qualifier deadline. Due to the popularity of this event and the need to register on the date registration opens (April 1), the Chapter solicits members in early March to gauge interest. The teams are then selected by the previous year’s captains based on a variety of factors. Teams are announced in mid to late March.
We have been very fortunate in past years to have enough players for two teams. This year is no different. The members of the “Delaware Destroyers” are:
Kathy Corcoran (captain), Cyd Barry, Paula Flynn, Beth Gabsewics, Lisa Jackson, Cheryl Lissy, Julie Smack and Melissa Steffy
Karyn Osmundson (captain), Monica Ayres, Val Brothwood, Billie Carberry, Renee Clarke, Mary Dempsey, Anne Lutz and Susan Smiley.
Over the last four years, we have been fortunate to advance one or both teams to the Finals. We are looking forward to this year’s qualifier with the hope of advancing our teams once again.
