The first ball in each team to be holed out is considered the score for the team. Holes 1-6: Four-Ball -- Two-person team format with each player playing her own ball. On each hole, the lower score of the two partners is the team’s score for the hole. Holes 7-12: Alternate Shot -- One player tees off on the odd holes, and the other player tees off on the even holes, regardless of who played the last stroke on the previous hole. Holes 13-18: Scramble -- Two-person team format. On each hole, both players tee off, then the team members choose the best shot, and both team members play the second shot from that location and again choose the best shot. Play continues in this manner until the hole is completed.
Teams - Teams can be made up of two players, each from the same club or different clubs. Those from the same club can compete in the 'Club' competition. Those from different clubs will be in the Flights competition only.
