St. Davids Golf Club was scheduled to host the first two rounds along with White Manor but the first round had to be postponed due to a heavy storm and when SDGC could not guarantee that golf carts would be available the next day all rounds were moved to White Manor. The plan was then to hold a double shotgun start the next two days but when the golf course workers were still cleaning up debris the next day that brought about a new plan. The tournament was reduced to 36 holes. One half of the field played on Wednesday and the other half played on Thursday. The field was then cut to the low 60 with the second and final round played on Friday. The total purse was $70,955 and first prize was $7,500.
