The CWDGA Four-Ball Match Play schedule creates competition among seventy clubs divided into five sections of five or six divisions, depending on size. Winners are determined based on accumulated points for the season. At season's end, those winners compete for the overall championship of their division in this tournament. The format of this playoff is Four-Ball Stroke Play, with the net better-ball of each team against the net better-ball of the other teams in their division. Each team consists of two players submitted from the winning teams. This tournament, called the Tournament of Team Champions, is the ultimate conclusion of the season.
