2019 GTA Charity Golf Tournament: Stone Mountain Golf Club   |   Monday October 14, 2019

Rules - Scramble

Tournament Rules - Scramble Format

Each group competes as a team for the LOWEST TEAM SCORE for the 18 holes.

METHOD OF PLAY

  • Each group will select a team captain prior to teeing off.
  • Play begins with each member of the group teeing off.  Men use white tees, women may use red tees, seniors 65+ may use red tees.
  • With the agreement of the other members of the group, the team captain decides which drive is the most desirable.
  • The other members of the group pick up their balls and proceed to the spot of the selected drive, where they will hit their second shots.
  • The best of the second shots is then chosen. The group will then hit their third shots (or putts) from that spot. 
  • This procedure continues until the ball is in the hole.
  • At the end of each hole, the score for the group is recorded on the card.
    Note:  The maximum score allowed is par.  After that, simply pick up the balls and move on to the next hole to ensure efficient tournament play.

OTHER RULES

  • For scoring purposes, each player's drive must be used at least twice during the tournament.
  • Place balls within one club length of the original ball.
  • In placing the ball, you may not change the condition of the shot. If the ball is in a hazard or rough, all members of the team must play their shot from the hazard or rough, respectively.
  • On the putting green, place the ball within 3 inches of the original ball, and such that it is no closer to the hole than the original.
  • On the putting green, give each person a shot at the first putt. Do not hole out a short putt if you have missed your first putt. The first ball in must count. Mark your ball and wait.
  • If playing as a threesome, one member of the threesome may, on a rotational basis, hit or putt an extra time to compensate for the fourth person.
  • Mulligans and putting strings may be used by the team on any hole or holes.
  • No handicap scoring will be used at this tournament.
  • The Stone Mountain Golf Club scoring app will be the official method of scoring, though paper cards may be accepted as a backup.
  • In case of a scoring tie, winners will be decided by lowest score on handicap holes.
