Any first place ties for overall gross, overall net and net flights will be determined by a scorecard play-off using the following method as recommended by the USGA.

 Scorecard Play-Off Procedure:
The winner will be based on the best score for the last round. If the tying sides have the same score for the last round or if the competition consists of a single round, the winner will be determined based on the score for holes 10-18, holes 13-18, holes 16-18 and finally the 18th hole. If there is still a tie, then the last six holes, three holes and final hole of the first nine holes will be considered in turn. If the round is less than 18 holes, the number of holes used in matching scores may be adjusted. For net competition, if the last nine, last six, last three holes scenario is used, one-half, one-third, one-sixth, etc. of the handicaps should be deducted from the score for those holes.

Pinehurst scores are not eligible to post for handicap purposes.


The tournament will consist of 36-holes of Pinehurst stroke play (both gross and net). In Pinehurst, two players play as partners, each partner plays from the teeing ground and plays the partners ball for the second shot. After the second shot, partners select the ball with which they wish to score and play that ball alternately to complete the hole.


Flights will be created in advance based on Team Handicap (combination of Handicap Indexes). 


Based on May 12 Handicap Revision. 60% of the lower player’s Course Handicap and 40% of the higher player’s Course Handicap determine a side’s Playing Handicap. Maximum Individual Handicap Index is 40.4.


A side’s combined Handicap Index will determine round one shotgun starting position with the lowest combined Handicap Indexes starting on hole 1. For the final round of competition, sides will be grouped by flights and round one net score.
