More information on the competition format can be found here.
More than 100 leading executives from the maritime industry will play at the two new 18-hole signature courses and “cross” their golf clubs to win the top three positions in the overall standings, whereas special awards will be given to individual players who will achieve the best scores in the “Longest Drive” and “Closest to the Pin” categories. It should be noted that the final results will materialize after the completion of the event’s 2nd day of competition on Saturday, September 10.
