The field will be capped at 144 and split into two pools.

Pool A will consist of all Pro Open Players.
Pool B will be all other Pro Divisions.

The tournament will be contested on four courses in two days.

The four courses with tee assignments:

Cottage Hill (Medal of Honor) DGC- Women will play White Tees. All Other divisions will play Blue Tees where available (Holes 2, 9, 10, 11 & 12)

Springhill/Hobbitt Park DGC - All divisions play regular tees with the exception of Hole 1 where the Open/Masters & GM will be teeing from the top of the bluff adjacent to Hole 8's basket

University of South Alabama DGC - All Divisions play regular tees.

Municipal/Langan DGC - Pro/Master/GM will play a special layout including a mix of custom holes, tee pads and basket positions. The final layout will be posted as soon as I have received word from the city engineers about final plans for the expansion of the tennis center. In general the layout will be similar to that played at the Southside tournament in April and at the City of Mobile doubles next weekend. Women will play the same baskets with up tees on some holes.
