1. A scramble means that all team members tee off on each hole and then decide which tee shot they like the best and mark the spot with a tee or ball marker.

2. The other team members pick up their balls and place them within one club length (no closer to the hole) of the marked spot. Each team member hits their next shot from the chosen spot of the prior shot.

3.  If the ball you choose to play is in a hazard (sand, water, etc.), the rough, or out of bounds, you cannot drop the ball outside of the hazard or rough even if relief is within one club length away.

4. This procedure is followed on every shot for the remainder of the hole, including putts. The ball should be marked on the putting green also.

5. Putts need to be made within 3 inches of the marked spot (no closer to the hole). The first ball to go in the hole is counted for the team score. When putting, once any ball is holed out, no further strokes count. The team is cautioned not to make “tap” in putts until all team members have had the opportunity to attempt the team’s original putt.

6. Each player’s tee shot must be used at least two times during the 18-hole competition.

7. Men tee off from the white tees and women from the red tees.

8. Threesomes are permitted to rotate a fourth shot from each ball location. In other words, one person will be hitting twice from each position. However, the person hitting two shots cannot do so consecutively. (For example, it’s Player A’s turn to hit two shots. The other team members must play their ball in between Player A’s two shots.)

9. In the event of a 5 person team. Only 4 are allowed to tee off, and play each hole. Members must rotate with one person sitting out each hole. (For example, If Rotating Players A – E with A playing the first hole and Player E sitting out, Player A, would sit out on holes 2, 7, 12, 17. Player B would sit out holes 3, 8, 13, 18 and so on.)

10. In the case of a tie, the pro staff will determine the lowest scores through a series of tie breaking holes. 

These rules are subject to change/updating prior to the start of the tournament.
