CWDGA conducts Four-Ball Match Play every year in each of its five sections - Central, Northeast, Northwest, South and West.
A member club is entitled to submit up to three teams of eligible players to compete in one of the four or more divisions of the club's respective section. An eligible player must have golf privileges at a CWDGA member club and must maintain a current, valid CDGA handicap index of 28.0 or less at that club. A lottery may be used for the second or third teams if the section is oversubscribed. A team consists of four players who play as a unit.
The form of play is four-ball match play (USGA Rule 30-1 and 30-3 apply) with an eighteen-point system of scoring, which is played on five separate dates.
Each team must be represented by at least one regular team member each play day. All regular members of a team must play at least three-scheduled Four-Ball Matches for the team to be eligible for prizes.
