The Championships are individual match play events with 18 holes of stroke play qualifying; players must enter either the State Amateur or the Mid-Amateur.  

The competition will be in two stages:   

                                   

(A) Stroke Play: 18 holes stroke play to determine flights for match play

The 32 low qualifiers comprise the championship flight in the State Amateur and Mid-Amateur.

 

In the State Amateur, all other flights shall consist of 16 or 8 players. If there is an insufficient number of players to fill a flight, the flight may be played as a stroke play event and/or a combination of stroke and match play, at the discretion of the WOSGA.

The Mid-Amateur only has a consolation bracket that will be comprised of the players who lose their matches on Tuesday. Seeding for matches in the consolation bracket maybe by drawing of the lot if there is an insufficient number of players or for other unforeseen reasons.
