Texas Scramble Format
(If you don’t have a team, we can help you put a foursome together)
- Each team to consist of 4 players (or 3 players depending on the number who enter the event).
- Handicap Allowance: Team of 4 = 1/10th of combined handicaps, Team of 3 = 1/8th of combined handicaps.
- All players tee off on all holes. A minimum of 3 tee shots per player must be used (minimum of 4 tee shots for teams of 3).
- Nominated Team Captain then selects the drive to be used and marks the position with a tee peg (not nearer the hole). The other players then retrieve their balls.
- All players then play within 300mm (12 inches) of the tee peg, not nearer the hole, in any order. A ball may be placed on the fairway, but must be dropped from any other area, including hazards.
- The above method of play is followed until the green is reached.
- On the green the same method applies. The ball chosen is marked and all players putt from that spot in any order.
- Each player marks the ball after putting. Play continues from each position until the ball is holed. If a player putts and misses and then inadvertently knocks the ball into the hole, that score counts.
- The gross score for each hole should be marked on the score card against the player whose tee shot was used, e.g. A, B, C or D.
- The score card is to be signed by two members of the team.
