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:
- Play begins with each member of the group teeing off.
- With the agreement of the other members of the group, decide which drive is the most desirable.
- 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.
- The best of the second shots is then chosen. The group will then hit all their putts (or third shots) from that spot.
- This procedure continues until the ball is in the hole.
- At the end of each hole, the score for the group is recorded on the card.
- Place balls within one club length of the original ball.
- On the putting green place the ball within 3 inches of the original ball.
- 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.
- 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.
- If playing as a threesome, one member of the threesome may on a rotational basis, hit or putt an extra time to compensate for the fourth person.
- Normal USGA Rules (out of bounds, etc) apply.
EACH PLAYER ON THE TEAM MUST CONTRIBUTE AT LEAST THREE DRIVES
