WHAT IS THE CURTIS CUP MATCH? The Curtis Cup Match is contested by women amateur golfers, one team from the United States of America (USA) and one team from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales (GB&I). The teams consist of not more than eight players and a captain. The Match is conducted every two years, alternately in the United States and Great Britain/Ireland.

FOUR-BALL A match in which two players (side) play their better ball against the better ball of the two other players (side).

SCORING A victory in each match scores one point. In the event a match goes 18 holes without a decision, one-half point is awarded to each side.
