  • SWATCA: Fostering women’s golf

     I’d been hearing about something called the Southeastern Women’s Amateur Team Championship Association for several years. This is an organization to sponsors women’s team championships among several states that include the Carolinas.

    Each state sends a team of 10 players (eight scores count) and a non-playing team captain. Competition is over three days with scoring based on four-ball match play, modified foursome match play and singles match play. The team that amasses the most points wins.
