On Saturday, October 7th the Vancouver Golf Tour (VGT) and Chilliwack Golf League (CGL) will do battle at Ledgeview Golf Club for the 5th Annual “FRASER CUP”. Like many of you experienced in 2016, this Match Play event will pitch the CGL’s match play specialists against the tour hardened veterans of the VGT. The title of this event comes from the geographical nature of the FRASER RIVER being the major divide between Chilliwack & the rest of the Lower Mainland.
The field is limited to 30 players from each organization for a total of 60 players. The selection to determine the 30 VGT Team Members is as follows.
As in the past, the Commish will Captain Team VGT and play the Captain of the Chilliwack Golf League.

Players from each team will be ranked by handicap on the day, and paired off 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, etc. Each match will be worth 1 point to the winner, or half a point each in the event of a tie. Matches will be played over 18 holes. All matches will be scored on a gross basis unless the difference in handicap between the players is greater than 4 strokes, in which case the full stroke allowance will be used. The maximum allowable handicap for the event will be 18. Players with handicaps over 18 may still play but will be capped.
Once all matches have been completed, the team with the most points will win the FRASER Cup. In the event the inaugural match is tied, a tie will result in the reigning champions retaining the cup.
