The tournament will be played in the Scotch Foursome format. In Scotch foursomes, both players on a side tee off. Players A and B each hit a drive, the better of the two drives is selected, and then A and B play alternate shot until the ball is holed. Who hits the second shot? The player whose drive was not selected. If A’s drive is the one the team decides to use, then B plays the second stroke.

Women are encouraged to form or join teams, either as all women or co-ed, teams. Women  will compete from the forward tees. In the case of a coed team, her partner will compete from the tee appropriate to his age
