“WGANC Pendants are distributed to each member club based on one award for each club having 30 or fewer members and one award for each additional 30 members or major fraction thereof. Only WGANC members of the women’s group are eligible to compete for these awards.

Members may compete at their own club. If a member belongs to more than one club, she may compete at each of those clubs.

The month of presentation is designated by the Captain. Unless notified to the contrary, pendants will be distributed to all clubs at the Area Meetings, typically held in the Fall. The WGANC office will determine the number of pendants for each club, based on the member club GHIN handicap report as of August 1.”


  1. At the beginning of the year, select months when the majority of your members will be expected to be playing their home course on any regular competition day. WGANC suggests that a minimum of six days be offered for competition and the best three net scores of the six rounds selected be used to determine the winners.
  2. If a club has more than 30 members, the field may be divided into flights.
  3. Awards may be determined as follows:
    a. The tournament chair, or other designated person, shall select three or more months during the play year that members can compete for the awards. She shall select one or more days from each of three or more months (the months need not be consecutive) and announce the dates that the members will be competing for WGANC pendants,
    b. The player(s) having the lowest total for three net scores for the period shall be the winner(s).
    c. In the event of ties, a fourth net score may be used, fifth net score, etc., or the club may use a blind draw. Whatever method is chosen must be announced to the players before the competition. Additional pendants are not given to member clubs for ties.
