Unfortunately, the 2020 Tri-State Championship that was scheduled to be played at Rutland Country Club has been cancelled due to coronavirus. It will be rescheduled in 2021 and Vermont will host at a venue and date to be announced. Read more from Trish Wade, Vermont Tri-State Captain.
Everyone is encouraged to apply for a place on our Vermont Tri-State team.
The Vermont Team is made up of 30 players in three handicap divisions plus 2 alternate players from the B division. Match players will play to 80% of their handicap with a limit of no more than one stroke per nine. First day format will be modified alternate shot match play. Second day format will be three-ball individual match play among the states. The 2 alternate team members will play a stroke play competition with the alternates from the other states unless they are needed to replace an injured or sick teammate playing match play. The substitution of an alternate player for a match player can happen at any time during play and for any division.
The following are taken into consideration during team selection: Handicap indexes with a focus on the 2020 Vermont postings. For those with previous Tri-State experience, performance statistics for the past 3 years will be used. For players who are new to Tri-States, the performance in relation to the players’ handicap for the past 3 VSWGA majors played will be used. Past alternates and those players who have traveled to ME and NH for Tri-State will be given consideration when breaking ties while ranking applicants.
The division handicap ranges and number of players are:
|A||0.0 – 14.9||10 players|
|B||15.0 – 21.9||12 players|
|C||22.0 – 30.0||8 players|
