Championship Format

Players in the Open Division will play an 18-hole qualifying round the morning of Monday, June 25, to establish the Championship and flight brackets. The top fifteen (15) players from the qualifying round will join the Defending Champion (who will be seeded #1 if entered) to complete the Championship Flight. Any tie for the 15th and final spot will be played off on the course on a hole-by-hole basis. If the Defending Champion is not entered, the top 16 players will advance to the Championship Flight.

All other players will be assigned to a flight (of 8) based on qualifying score. Ties for the final spot in a flight and/or seeding positions will be broken by using a score card playoff following the USGA recommended procedure.

Field Limitation

The field will be limited to the 64 Open Division players on a first come, first serve basis. If the field is oversubscribed or incomplete, (not divisible by flights of eight), entries will be accepted to complete full flights based on the order they have been recieved. Players will be placed on an alternate list until a flight is complete. In case the event openings occur in the last flight due to withdrawals prior to the pairings being released, applicants will be placed on the alternate list.
