- Morning Matches: Modified Pinehurst Format – Matches played in sixsomes. Each team will be competing in a dual match format against the opposing teams in his grouping. Each team member tees off of every hole. The tee shot considered to be in the best position is chosen and the other ball is picked up. Play from this point on is alternate shot until the ball is holed out.
- Afternoon Matches: Three-Ball Match Play. Three players play a match against one another, each playing his own ball. Each player is playing two distinct matches.
- All matches will be worth a maximum of three points with single points being awarded for the front nine, back nine and 18 hole total. Ties will result in split points.
