Stage 2 will take place from 2-5 November on four Spanish courses: Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club in Almeria, Isla Canela Links in Huelva, Golf Las Pinaillas in Albacete, and Fontanals Golf Club in Girona.

The final will be held in Tarragona, Spain, at Infinitum Golf (Lakes & Hills Courses) from 10-15 November, covering a distance of 108 holes. The Rules of Golf are a set of standard rules and procedures by which the sport of golf should be played.

They are jointly written and administered by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body of golf throughout the world, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are the jurisdiction of the United States Golf Association.

An expert commission made up of members of the R&A and USGA oversees and refines the rules every four years. The latest revision is effective January 1, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in certain cases reduce penalties to ensure balance.

The rule book, entitled "Rules of Golf", is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status. In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise the competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and managing the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.
