O The scoring format is 2man best ball, with a max. of 10 points to be had per
match. Each 2-man team cards only one set of strokes per hole, with handicap.

each get ½ point per hole. After all 9 holes are played, whichever team won the
majority of the 9 holes outright, get 1 extra point. If after 9 holes everything is
tied up, the score is 5 to 5. All match points need to add up to 10 (EX: 5-5, 6-4.
