(Hcp strokes will apply to any pair with a handicap allowance of 16 or higher, and each pair must play the hole as before.) The prize money for those sharing 2nd, 3rd etc shall be shared equally. If no tied players attend the play-off, the Trophy will be awarded to the players with the lowest Handicap Index’s.
