The championship will be 36 holes of stroke play (18 holes per day) in a Scramble format. Teams will be re-paired by score, within their flight, for the second round. Play will be 35% of the lower Course Handicap and 15% of the higher Course Handicap. A side will start the play of each hole and then select the team’s best shot and mark the spot with a tee or ball marker. The partner may place a ball within 6 inches (no closer to the hole) of the marked spot. The side plays their next stroke from the chosen spot. This procedure is followed on every shot until the ball is holed. Sides are required to select each partner’s tee shot at least six times throughout a round. NOTE: A side may not use the 6 inches to place a ball outside a hazard or on the putting green without penalty. Partners may play in the order they consider best.
