The CDGA Mixed Championship presented by Zero Friction is an annual stableford-scoring pairs competition. The event crowns two champion pairs each year--Low Gross and Low Net. Both champions from 1972 to 2004 had their names engraved on the William J. Pailey Trophy, while champions since 2005 have been commemorated on the Walker Cup Trophy. Douglas and Lauren Meyer from Ivanhoe Club earned the overall gross crown for the second year in a row, while Brian and Lisa Cornell of Royal Melbourne Country Club claimed the net title at Biltmore Country Club in 2019.
