Day one – Tuesday is a 4 Ball Best Ball Stableford, Day two – Wednesday is a 2 Person Ambrose and Day three – Thursday is a 4 Ball Aggregate Stableford. Teams are awarded points based on where they finish amongst the field on each day’s play (e.g. if there are 50 teams of 2 players then the team that wins will collect 25 points, the team that comes second will collect 24 points....the team that comes 24th will collect 2 points and all other teams will collect 1 point). This unique point structure, along with the three different games, gives players of all different handicap levels a realistic chance of winning. The format also lends itself to having a high likelihood of been very close on the last day, which makes for some exciting golf.
The week starts on Monday with a welcome dinner, held at Governor's Lodge Resort, the tournament’s major sponsor. This dinner is included in player's entry fees with non playing partners being able to attend by purchasing extra tickets.
The golf is held over the next three days with daily presentations held at Norfolk Island Golf Club on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Following the golf on Thursday, the daily and overall presentation dinner will be held at Governor's Lodge Resort. A two-course dinner is included in the entry fee and a great night of laughs and new friends is guaranteed.
