Stroke Play competitors begin play in one of five flights based on their USGA Handicap Index at the Chapter Championship qualifying event.

Stroke Play Flights:
Championship - Handicaps 0.0 to 12.0
First Flight - Handicaps 12.1 to 19.0
Second Flight - Handicaps 19.1 to 25.0

Intra-Chapter Team Scramble
Intra-Chapter scramble teams consist of four (4) women who meet the eligibility requirements to play in the EWGA Championship. The team "handicap" is established based on the USGA/RCGA Handicap Index of all four players. Handicap range: 0.0 to 40+.
