HistoryThe NWAGA Challenge began in 2008. The challenge consisted of five 9-hole rounds in four-ball match play format. The Challenge has been extremely popular since its inception and has offered NWAGA members an alternative to the Match Play Championship.In 2014 the event became a stand alone event and the "NWAGA Challenge" was renamed the "Bobbie Hopp Challenge" to honor Bobbie Hopp, who was president and played a large part of the creation of the event.

Format

 

The Bobbie Hopp Challenge is a two-person four-ball with five round-robin 9-hole matches. Flights of six teams will be predetermined based on 90% of handicaps. Points will be determined by the outcome of each match.

The tournament will consist of teams playing five, nine-hole matches which we call "races," which allows each team to play every team in their flight. Teams will receive a scorecard for each match and will play off the lowest Course Handicap in each respective match. For example, if team A's Course Handicaps are 15 and 18, and team B's Course Handicaps are 11 and 26, the lowest handicap is an 11. The 11 will play scratch, the 15 will receive 4 strokes, the 18 will get 7 strokes, and the 26 will get 15 strokes. The maximum Course Handicap is 36.
If the tournament is not full and there are byes in a flight or flights, teams with a bye match may still play the course. If a team withdraws during the tournament, all points won in the matches they played are voided.

Each match is made up of 9 available points. A team gets one point for winning a hole, ½ a point if the hole is tied, and no points for losing a hole. The maximum number of points a team can win in any match is 6, and the minimum is 0. The team with the most points at the end of the five races wins their flight. If there are ties within a flight, the ties will be broken and the winner determined as follows:
- by the results of their head to head match.
- highest point total on day 1 (race 1, 2, and 3 combined)
- highest point total on day 2 (race 4 and 5 combined)
- most points in race 1
- most points in race 2
- most points in race 3
- most points in race 4
- most points in race 5
- if still tied, the winner will be decided by lot
