4 Person Scramble:

Each player will hit their tee shot.  From there, each team will select the best shot having all players hit from that point until the ball is holed. A single score is recorded for each team.

 

Foursomes with only Three People:

One player will play as the fourth player for an entire hole.  Players will rotate playing the fourth player role and, in the end, each player should have played six extra holes.

 

Tees:

Ladies hit from the Red Tees; Men hit from the White Tees; Men (65+) hit from the Gold Tees.

 

Minimum Tee Shots:

Each team must use a minimum of 2 shots off the tee per player.  Please mark the scorecard with the initials of the player who hit the tee shot.

 

Bogey is your Friend for Women’s and Mixed Teams:

To improve pace of the play, once your team reaches bogey (1 over par), pick up and move to the next hole. Record bogey as your score.  For Men’s teams, par is your friend.

 

One Shot Rule:

Each team should remain within one shot of the team in front of them.  If Team 1 is on the green, Team 2 needs to be in the fairway ready to hit, and Team 3 needs to be on the tee box.  If you fall behind, pick up and catch up.  There are 30 groups pm the course; keeping up is imperative to pace of play.

 

Mulligans:

If you purchased Mulligans, use one per stroke retaken.  Mulligans are not valid for the longest drive and closest to the hole shots or on any Par 3.

 

Hole score:

Once the ball is holed, that score counts.  Do not hole out until all players have attempted their putts.
