The MBAT Golf tournament is a one-day 18 Holes STABLEFORD.

b. Rules

  • ●  All players must arrive at the Golf course at least 30 minutes before tee time to check in. Total

    number of players: +/-30. Caddies are allowed and welcome.

  • ●  Slow play will harm everyone’s enjoyment of the day. This is the reason why we decided upon a

    stableford format, as once it is no longer possible to score a point, a player does not have to

    complete the hole but can simply pick up his/her ball and proceed to the next hole.

  • ●  The allowed maximum Handicap is 24,4.

  • ●  Handicaps will be self-reported in advance. Please bring your official index transcript/handicap

    card for verification on tournament day.

  • ●  Golf appropriate attire is necessary: collared top (polo or shirt) with trousers or knee-length shorts for both men and women. It is recommended to bring your own golf shoes. If unsure, please ask since we comply with the rules of the Club.

    d. Equipment
