2018 Chapter Championship

The 2018 Chapter Championships for York-Simcoe takes place on Sunday, July 15, 2018.

COMPETITIVE EVENT DETAILS

This will be primarily a competitive event.  Again this year, we will provide spaces for ladies wishing to participate on the fun side.

Players must have an established EWGA or GAO  handicap index and have an equivalent of two (2) 18-hole scores posted to their handicap record in the current year prior to the handicap cutoff date. The handicap cutoff date for YS Chapter Championship is July 1, 2018.
