We commence on Saturday July 18, when we play 27 holes (18 on the Sea Course, 9 on the Stone Course), on Sunday we will also play 27 with the last round on the Sea Course on Monday, August 20. Anyone who does not want to play 72 holes can join the one-day competition on the Sea Course on August 20th, after which we will come together for a celebration.
