The championship format is 18 holes of Pinehurst Foursomes. A team must then complete the hole with the ball selected. Golf Professionals will play from the same set of tees and the junior will play from tees based on gender and age. Female professionals and professionals over the age of 60 may play a shorter set of tee designated by the committee.

Past champions in the field include 2014 winner Clarence Rose of Walnut Creek Country Club, playing with junior golfer Dawson Daniels of Greensboro, N.C. Last year the duo finished T10. 2010 champ Mike Cato of Bradford Creek is teaming with Nicholas Brown of Wendell, N.C. Cato placed T3 last year at River Run.

Last year's runner-up, Nick Jacobi of Monroe Country Club, will look to grab the title at Hope Valley with Nicholas Smith of Wingate, N.C.

2015 North Carolina Junior Boys' champion Jack Massei of Cary, N.C. will team with Tony Mabini, Jr. of Prestonwood Country Club.

All play will begin with a 9:00 am shotgun start.

Hope Valley Country Club is a Donald Ross gem. The course of today is almost identical to the original 1926 layout of Hope Valley. Not that changes were never made at Hope Valley. Four well-known architects, Perry Maxwell, Dan Maples, John LaFoy and Brian Silva have left their imprint. Members and their guests are reminded on the score card: "When you play Hope Valley, you are part of golf history.”
