In the case of a tie for the team championship, there will be a hole-by-hole sudden-death playoff (Best Ball format) starting at Hole #18 at the Green Island Course. The playoff will continue on Hole #18 until a winner is determined.
Ties for flight prizes will be determined by the USGA recommended procedure: Best Ball score cards will be compared to determine the best net score for holes 10-18; if necessary, scores on 13-18, then 16-18. If still tied, the winner will determine by comparing Best Ball scorecards starting with the 18th hole working backwards.
Awards Presentation will be held immediately following the competition on Wednesday in the Grand Ballroom at Green Island Country Club. Hors d’oeuvres and snacks will be served; beverages can be purchased. A photographer will be taking pictures of all winners.
