Don't forget the rain suit and towels if you plan on playing golf this weekend.

The four-day match play tournament begins on Friday and finishes on Monday.
The four-ball event opens with a qualifying round Friday. After the field is flighted (16 teams per flight) following the first 18 holes, match play begins on Saturday with one match per team scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Teams surviving until Monday could play two rounds in both consolation and championship divisions of each flight.
