Day 1: Team Draw

The experience starts out with the high energy team draw. Each Fox will randomly draw his or her Mouse and they will form the team that competes over the 54 holes.

Day 2: Best Ball

Both Fox and Mouse tee off on each hole. Teams choose one of the two drives and then both players hit successive shots, each time choosing the better result to play for the next shot until the ball is holed. 20% of the team’s combined handicap is used to determine team handicap strokes received (fractions rounded). Each player’s drive must be used at least three times on each nine holes.
