Two Day Tournament: This is a Stroke Play Tournament with a maximum handicap of 14 and a differential of 5 strokes between partners. We will be crowning an Overall Champion and Gross Champions.

As always, day one will be a straight-up Best Ball of Partners, and Day Two will be the Bonfire Shamble. Partners hit Tee Balls on all 18 Holes in the Shamble, and then they select the best drive on each hole. Each Partner plays their own ball from that location and completes the hole on their own. Both Balls are scored on every hole.
