What is the Women's Rosebowl?
It is a partners, better ball, net score championship.  Each player may play the hole and the team takes the better net score between the two balls played.  The fun thing with the format is a player does not have to score every hole.  She can rely on her partner and visa versa. 
 
If you are looking for some fun this summer we encourage you to find a partner (even from a different club) and participate.  See you on the links in 2016.
