The Pennsylvania Golf Association introduced a Father-Son Championship for the first time in 2010. The championship evolved into a Parent-Child event as a result of the 2018 merger with the PSWGA. The event is 36-holes of stroke play over two days of competition. Two 18-hole stipulated rounds.

Chapman format: both players hit their drives on the tee, for the second shot player A hits player B’s ball and player B hits player A’s ball, for the third shot the players select which ball they would like to play and play alternately until the ball is holed.

The scoring will be traditional stroke play gross and net. Gross and net awards will be presented. Net competition will be based on team combined handicap; 60% of lower handicap and 40% of higher handicap Course Handicap limit will be 36. There will be two divisions, a Parent-Child division and a Father-Son division. There will be two flights within each division, a Championship tee and a Forward tee flight. Championship tee approximate yardage: Men-6500, Women-5700. Forward tee: Men-6000, Women-5000.
