The tournament will be a 54 hole Best Ball Stroke Play Competition among teams of four, consisting of a club professional and three of his/her Club amateurs. The amateurs will play to three-quarters (75%) of their handicap of the course they are playing (maximum of 20). In addition, there will be a DAILY TEAM low gross and low net competition. Amateurs will also compete for Closest to the Pin competitions at their respective courses.
Major Prizes will be awarded for Low Net and Low Gross. In the event of a tie for first place in either the Low Net or Low Gross division, first place will be decided by USGA Tie breaking format of Last 9, Last 6, Last 3 etc. from their round at the Mid Ocean Club. A playoff will not be used in the Team competition. In the event of a tie in the Professional Division, a play-off will take place on Wednesday, immediately following play at the course where the majority of ties are situated. This will be announced accordingly. All other ties will be decided by retrogression against the course par.
