When – The three-round championship begins today and runs through Sunday.
What’s on the line – Provincial titles will be awarded in the amateur and senior divisions for both men and women while there are also men’s divisions in mid amateur and super senior.

The amateur also awards double the points in the player of the year series. Organizers of the Island squad competing in the Atlantic Cup men’s tournament also use this week as a tool to select its 12 players.
Online – Live scoring will be available throughout the weekend on the association’s website, www.peiga.ca.
