INDIVIDUAL TOURNAMENT ROUNDS
  1. The tournament’s first round will have the couples playing a two person scramble format. The Dark n’ Stormy flight will be playing at Tucker’s Point Golf Course, while the Rum Swizzle flight will be playing at Port Royal Golf Course. Both players will hit drives from their respective tees. They will choose the better of their two drives and hit their next shots from that particular lie (continuing the same procedure until their balls are holed). Only one score per hole is recorded. The team with the lowest net total score after eighteen holes will be declared the winner of this particular tournament round. Low handicap: 35% and high handicap: 15% - each team will receive 50% of their combined handicap.

  2. The tournament’s second round will have the couples playing a modified best ball format. The Dark n’ Stormy flight will be playing at Port Royal Golf Course and The Rum Swizzle flight will be playing at Tucker’s Point Course. Both players will hit drives from their respective tees and will choose the better of their two drives to hit their next shots from. They will then play their own shots all the way through. Each couple must use each other's drive on at least two holes on each nine. Also, each player will play their own ball from drive to finish on each of the par threes. Their team score for each hole will be the lower of their two scores on that particular hole. The team with the lowest net total score after eighteen holes will be declared the winner of this particular round. The higher handicap golfer of the two receives 90% and the lower handicap golfer receives 95% of their adjusted handicaps. If a difference of more than eight shots occurs between the two players after the adjustment, an additional 10% will be deducted.

  3. The tournament’s third round will again have the couples playing a modified best ball format. The Dark n’ Stormy flight will be playing at Belmont Hills Golf Course and the Rum Swizzle flight will be playing at Port Royal Golf Course. They’ll follow the same format rules as outlined above.

The Dark n’ Stormy flight will be playing at Port Royal Golf Course and the Rum Swizzle flight will be playing at Belmont Hills. Players will each play their own shots for eighteen holes. Their team score for each hole will be the lower of their two scores on that particular hole. The team with the lowest net total score after eighteen holes will be declared the winner of this particular round. Men receive 90% and women receive 95% of their adjusted handicaps.
