The 14th Island Tee will open this Thursday at the Mactan Island Golf Club in Lapu-Lapu City.
This is the club’s annual member-guest tournament and it will be using the Modified Stableford Scoring System.
The event will run until Sunday, but the participants will only be playing two rounds within that period.
At stake will be prizes for the overall team champion as well as the top two teams for the three handicap classes for the men as well as the seniors and the ladies divisions.
To qualify for the seniors’ class, both team members must already be senior golfers (not less than 55 years old) and their total age must not be less than 120 years.
There will also be prizes for the top individual performers based on the gross and net scores.
The average handicap of the team members would be used to determine under which category a team would be classified. Players will only be allowed to use three-fourths of their current handicap for this tournament.
