Amateur women golfers from North and South Carolina will compete during semi-final rounds to vie for a select few spots to advance to the EWGA Championship, the world's largest amateur championship for women.
The EWGA Championship series began this spring with regional qualifiers in 130 U.S. - based chapters of the organization, connecting current and aspiring business and professional women nationwide through golf.
Competitors from the Carolinas advanced to the semi-finals by taking home low net or gross honors at any of nine regional EWGA chapter qualifiers, held in Wilmington, Charlotte, Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, Piedmont Triad, Raleigh, Sandhills and Hampton Roads, Virginia.
The series includes both individual stroke play and team scramble divisions. Winners of the semi-finals will advance to the EWGA Championship at PGA National Resort & Spa, October 5-6.
"Every year, thousands of working women exchange their business suit for a golf shirt to compete in the championship series," says EWGA CEO and President Pam Swensen. "We're looking forward to see who from the Carolina region will advance to the finals in October."
Women with a USGA handicap of 40.4 or better can enter the stroke play ev
