Format: The Four-Ball Tournament consists of 36-holes of gross and net four-ball stroke play. Teams consist of two partners. Each team member will receive 95% of their course handicap.
Lowest net score for 36-holes will be tournament champion. A tie for first place will be played off until a winner is determined. If the event of a tie for the gross team champion, the prize monies will be divided, pro-rata.
Day 1 - 18-holes, four-ball stroke play. Teams will be paired base upon total course handicap of each team. When possible, teams from the same club will not be paired together.
Day 2 - 18- holes, four-ball stroke play. For the second round of competition, teams will be paired by the team's cumulative net best-ball score. There will be one flight made up of the full field and the top 1/3 of the field will receive prizes. With the exception of overall team champion, ties will be combined and divided, pro-rata.
