It is a rumble format and can be any combination of players / handicaps. It is one stableford score to count on the first 6, two stableford scores to count on the second 6 holes and all three stableford scores to count on the final 6 holes.
The winning team on the day goes to play in the National Final at Woodbrook GC on Friday 8th September. A good showing there can get you into the Grand Final at Royal Portrush on the 28 / 29 September.
It is €10 per person (€30 per team) or alternatively if you cannot make it on Sunday and would like to make a donation to this worthy cause then you can sponsor a tee box or a green on the day for €20 per tee box or €20 per green.
