Scramble Team Rules

  • Each player tees off. The team chooses the best shot and plays from there continuously until the ball is holed. The ball must be marked, and the next shot is played within one club length of that spot, no closer to the hole. The team cannot use 2 consecutive shots from any team member per hole. After you have completed the hole, the team then records its score and continues the same format for all 18 holes.
  • On the putting green, the ball must be placed within six inches of the selected shot, no closer to the hole. You may not change the cut of grass or move out a hazard. (Example: Your club length cannot move the ball from fairway to rough and vice versa.)
  • Teams will receive 10% of their total handicap.
  • Each player must use at least 2 drives.
  • If your ball comes to rest within 1 foot of the hole, take a gimme as your next stroke, pick up your ball and head to the next tee.
