|FORMAT||Two-person team event with players using Handicaps. Two competitors play as partners, each playing his or her own ball while using handicap strokes. The lower Net score of the partners is the score for the team on that hole, thus taking the score of the better ball on each hole. It is the player’s responsibility to know the holes at which handicap strokes are to be given or received.|
Points will be awarded to teams based on finishing order. These points will not be tallied individually, but as a team. The total number of points won at each Better Ball will be added up and teams earning enough points could qualify for the end of the year Championship. Click here for the points structure.
