Sat, Sept 29th 7:30am (approx) Tee Times @ Quarry Oaks: Foursomes (Alternate Shot)

“Foursome” play is a match where two golfers compete on a team against two other golfers and each side plays one ball. The golfers play alternate shots (player A hits tee shot, player B hits second shot, etc.) until the hole is played out. Team members alternate playing the tee shots, with one golfer hitting the tee shot on odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting the tee shot from the even-numbered holes. The team with the better score wins the hole. Should the two teams tie for best score, the hole is halved.

Sat, Sept 29th 1:00pm (approx) Tee Times @ Steinbach Fly-In: Better Ball ( Four Ball)

“Better ball” is a name for a golf competition format in which two golfers play as a team, but each playing his or her own ball throughout. On each hole, the two golfers on a team compare scores. The lower of the two scores – the better ball – counts as the team’s score. The team with the better score wins the hole. Should the two teams tie for best score, the hole is halved.

Sunday, Sept 30th 11:00am (approx) Tee Times @ Steinbach Fly-In: Singles Match play

Players compete to win individual holes, with the side winning the most holes claiming victory in the match. The player with the better score wins the hole. Should the two players tie for best score, the hole is halved.

* Ties are called “halves” and are not played off (each side scores a half-point for their team)

* Dinner will follow the completion of play at Steinbach Fly-In this year and Winning Team presented the Steiner Cup.
