Handicapped Team Match Play Tournament!

The Bowlin Cup is a Bella Vista women’s golf tournament which will be played like the Solheim Cup where players compete on teams against other teams using the match play format.  However in the Bowlin Cup, match play will be handicapped.  Any woman who has an established Bella Vista handicap is welcome to play.  The tournament has been named in honor of Bella Vista’s own golf pioneer Dolores Bowlin.  

Players will be divided into teams according to their handicaps and will be playing against others with similar handicaps. However, any differences in handicap will be factored into play.  There will be three days of team match play competition using Best Ball, Alternate Shot and Singles formats. For the Best Ball and Alternate Shot play days, players will have partners. The singles competition will be individual match play.  Tournament details are thoroughly explained in the Play and Rules document.

The idea for the tournament has been circulating in the Village for a number of years.  Biddy Pyle and Marianne Smyth finally put things together and it was played for the first time in 2011.  Questions should be directed to them.
