1 The qualifying teams from each country will compete in the World Final.
2 The World Final will comprise of two 18 Hole Stableford Nett rounds on Oitavos Dunes golf course, with players playing off 3/4 of their official club handicaps (maximum 24 for men, 30 for ladies). Players with higher handicaps will play with the maximum handicap allowed.
3 Each round will be decided by taking the aggregate total of the Stableford Nett scores of the team. The final score of the team will be the total sum of points of both players over the two days. In the case of a tie, there will be a sudden death play-off, as set out in point 6.
4 Only in exceptional circumstances can a change to the team that qualified be made, subject to approval by the Organisers.
5 Teams not at the 1st tee at the given start time or within 5 minutes of their starting time, will be given a two stroke team penalty on the score of the day. Teams who are late more than 5 minutes of their start time will be disqualified from the competition. Teams must be at the 1st tee at least 15 minutes prior to their start time.
6 In the event of a tie, or ties, the World Champions will be decided by a sudden death play-off. Played at the 18th hole, the stableford scores of both players will be added together, the team with the highest stableford nett score for the hole being deemed the winner. In the event of a tie, the teams will continue playing on the same basis until a winner is found. The team playing first will be decided by a toss of a coin, in the event of three or more teams teeing, lots will be drawn.
7 If by any reason it is not possible to play the play off, the winner will be the team with the lower sum of handicaps. If the tie remains, the winning team will be the team with best scores on the last 18, 9, 6, 3 and 1 hole of the competition.
