FOUR-PERSON SCRAMBLE FORMAT

  • The scramble format shall consist of teams of four players competing against other similar groups of players.
  • To the extent possible golfers registering not as part of a four-person team shall be matched up with other golfers.
  • There will be no age or gender divisions in this inaugural year of the tournament.
  • There will be a shotgun start.
  • Golfers shall only use hickory-shaft golf clubs and compatible golf balls.
  • Hickory golf style attire is encouraged but not required, but at a minimum the Dunedin Golf Club dress code must be observed.
  • Each group competes as a team for the LOWEST TEAM GROSS SCORE for the 18 holes.

METHOD OF PLAY:

  1. Play begins with each member of the group teeing off.
  2. With the agreement of the other members of the group, decide which drive is the most desirable.
  3. The other members of the group pick up their balls and proceed to the spot of the selected drive, where they will hit their second shots.
  4. The best of the second shots is then chosen. The group will then hit all their putts (or third shots) from that spot.
  5. This procedure continues until the ball is in the hole.
  6. At the end of each hole, the score for the group is recorded on the card.

OTHER RULES

  1. Place balls within one club length of the original ball.
  2. On the putting green place the ball within 3 inches of the original ball.
  3. In placing the ball, a player may not change the condition of the shot. If the ball is in a hazard or rough, all members of the team must play their shot from the hazard or rough, respectively.
  4. On the putting green, give each person a shot at the first putt. Do not hole out a short putt if you have missed your first putt. The first ball in must count. Mark your ball and wait.
