CWDGA Member Services
Each year the CWDGA conducts:
Four-Ball Match Play (in each of the five sections)
-- Annual Championship
-- One-Day Stroke Play
-- Better-Ball of Pairs
-- Senior Better-Ball of Pairs
Eligibility: Any woman golfer from a member club in good standing who meets the CWDGA eligibility and handicap requirements is eligible to play in all events. To remain in good standing, unless exceptional circumstances exist, a member club must allow the use of its facility when requested, which is usually once every two to three years for Four-Ball Match Play and once every ten to fifteen years for a tournament. The Golf Chair and Team Captain at each member club are responsible to assisting the CWDGA in securing play dates at their home course.
Services to Member Clubs:
-- a comprehensive website, www.cwdga.org, with access to Four-Ball Match Play and tournament information and continuing development of online resources;
-- links to other Chicago and Illinois golf associations;
-- uniform course and slope ratings;
-- the CWDGA Handbook for Members publication;
-- meetings to assist member clubs in setting up their local golf programs;
-- Rules Seminars;
-- instructions in handicapping and rules interpretation;
-- presentation of CWDGA hole-in-one pins.
Membership dues are assessed annually by the CWDGA for each club. Assistance to member clubs is available from the CWDGA throughout the season.
