Team Champions Crowned As 2022 Spring Team Matches Conclude - MASSGOLF

See Which Mass Golf Member Clubs Took Home Cup Titles In The 2022 Spring Team Matches

For Immediate Release: May 27, 2022

NORTON, Massachusetts – The Women’s Spring Team Matches came to an exciting finish Thursday after participants played in five weeks of a statewide tournament amongst fellow Mass Golf Member Club teams.

This year’s Spring Team Matches featured 138 teams divided into 23 different Cups (6 teams of 5 players in each). Every Thursday from April 28-May 26, the teams followed a match rotation schedule with 5 teams in each Cup hosting one match day at their course, while one team in each Cup was designated as a “travel” team. The teams faced a different opponent each week.

The competition used the singles net match play format at 100% handicap. Points were awarded for each hole won or tied in their head-to-head matches. The team with the most points at the conclusion of the five matches was named the winner of that Cup.

The Spring Team Matches date back to 1900 when the Women’s Golf Association of Boston was formed. That year, the original clubs ⁠—  Oakley Country Club, Concord Country Club, Brae Burn Country Club, and The Country Club ⁠— played the first Spring Team matches, and Oakley prevailed winning all three. The WGAB became the Women’s Golf Association of Massachusetts (WGAM) in 1929, and in 2018, the WGAM merged into the Massachusetts Golf Association to form Mass Golf.
