"The maximum handicap for men is 27 and 36 for the ladies.

"Prizes will be awarded to the top three nett scores in both the senior and elite categories. The main prize will be the best gross in both categories.

"In case of a tie for the prizes, then the places will be decided on countback."

There will be nearest to the pin prizes on all the par three holes while the longest drive prize will be on the 18th hole.
