2019 WOMEN$ OPEN Challenge

Hosted by LPGA Amateurs - Columbus OH


Compete for a MINIMUM $1,000 Prize Payout*!


Format: Open to ALL WOMEN$ amateur four-person SCRAMBLE teams. 

This is a NET competition. Players must have a GHIN or GN21/GolfNet/LPGA Am handicap less than 40.4.  Players with a local handicap index higher than 40.4 may play.  However their course handicap will be calculated using a 40.4 index.  The August 1st revision date will be used for the event.

Don't have a GHIN Handicap YET?  You can contact your home course and get one by paying the fee and posting 5 18-hole rounds.  You will need to complete that ASAP so you will have a handicap at the time you register. 

LPGA Amateurs members get their GolfNet handicap from the Member Clubhouse, also with 5 18-hole rounds.

The team course handicap will be determined using the Ambrose method. 

Each team member must hit and use a minimum of 3 tee shots.

Markers will be present on each hole to record scores.
