Scramble Rules

1. Team Composition:  Teams consist of four players.  Each player hits a tee shot, and the                                                  team selects the best shot to play from.

2. Tee Shots:  Each team member must contribute at least one tee shot to the team's       
                       selected shots during a round.

3. Ball Placement:  Once the team selects the best tee shot, all players place their balls     
                                 within one club length (no closer to the hole) of the selected spot

                                    -Scramble format allows players to move the ball 1 club length no closer to the                                                hole but must remain in the same area of the golf course

                                    ​Example: you may move the ball from rough to fairway but cannot move the ball                                                          from a penalty area or bunker to another part of the golf course

4. Order of Play:   After the initial tee shot, the team decides the order of play for subsequent                                  shots.  This order can change from shot to shot, but each player must play                                  their shot from the chosen location.

5. Minimum Drives:  Some scrambles have a rule requiring a minimum number of drives from                                     each team member to be used during the round. 

6. Putting:  On the putting green, the team chooses the best spot to putt from, and all players                     putt from that location.

7. Handicaps:  Handicap strokes, if applicable, are generally applied to the team's total score                           at the end of the round.

8. Scoring:   The team's score for each hole is the total number of strokes it took to complete                         the hole.  The team with the lowest total score at the end of the round is the                               winner.

9. Mulligans:  No mulligans are allowed.

10. Time Limits:  Teams are expected to keep up with the pace of play to ensure the                                               tournament progresses smoothly.

11. Handicaps:  Handicap strokes, if applicable, are generally applied to the team's total score                           at the end of the round.

12. Playoff:   In the event of a tie, we will use the Whole In One League tie breaker to determine

                     the winner 

13.  Playoff Tie Breaker - in the event of 2 groups with the same score after 9 hole the                                                          following tie breaker will be used

                                                   -Holes 5-9 will be compared; if still tied,

                                                         -Holes 7-9 will be compared;  if still tied,

                                                         -The score for the 9th hole only will be used, and then continued                                                                         backwards by comparing the 8th hole only, 7th hole only, etc. until a                                                                 winner has been determined.

These rules provide a framework for an enjoyable and competitive Four-Man Golf Scramble. Specific events may have additional or modified rules, so participants should familiarize themselves with any tournament-specific regulations.
