Manner of Play

The competition format for both days shall be the 4-Ball Stableford Points net of Handicap.

All players will play their own ball for the entire round for two days of competition. The team score will be comprised of 3 parts: (a) the total Stableford points based on net score of the member–player; (b) the total Stableford points based on net score of the guest – players; and (c) The total Stableford points of the better/best ball based on net for each hole of the team, will then be added to the member and guest aggregate net score. For example; net score of member is par = 2 points, net score of guest is bogey = 1 point, best ball/score is net par = 2 points, total points for the team on that hole is 5 points.

At the end of the competition, the team with the highest TOTAL (team aggregate + best ball/score for 2 playing days) number of Stableford points will be declared the champion, the next highest as 1st runner-up, and so on.
