The Challenge consist of forty players, twenty representing the East and twenty representing the West.  During the competition, each team will be paired from the low GHIN index to the highest GHIN index.  This will ensure similar handicaps are competing against one another.

The Format is Four-Ball Match Play, gross only competition.  Four-ball match play is where two players play their better ball against the better ball of two other players. Each match will compete for one total point on each hole.  If a hole is halved, each side will receive a half point.  The total points available for each match is 18 points.

At the end of the competition the team who has earned the most cumulative gross points is the STXLAGA Challenge Cup Champion.  Total points available is 180.
