The one-day event will feature a gross championship, which will include 18 holes of four-ball, stroke play (better ball of partners) format and a net competition where each team receives 85% of her course handicap for net scoring. The net competition will be played from a shorter yardage than gross competition.
This will be the first NJSGA women’s championship hosted by Fiddler’s Elbow.
What used to be acres of peach orchards, the land transformed into 27 holes of golf in 1964 after Raymond J. Donovan and Ronald A. Schiavone obtained the land. In 1994, Fiddler’s Elbow added a third course to the property, now making it the only course in the Garden State with three championship courses.
The $300 team entry fee includes a cart, range balls and a luncheon following the conclusion of play. Teams must determine which competition they will play in at the time of registration.
Entries for the 9th Women’s Four-Ball Championship will close on October 13.
