The event begins with a practice round of golf Friday, Aug. 10, 2012. Tournament play is on Aug. 11 and 12.

The field is limited to 96 players and entries must be received by Aug. 9.

It is individual medal (stroke) play, using full handicaps. Prizes will be awarded for over the field play as well as flights based on handicaps for both gross and net scores.

Prizes will be in the form of gift certificates that can be exchanged for merchandise.
