General

Scramble Format

Each player on the team hits a tee shot.  The team then decides which ball to play and all three play from that position, within one clubs length and no closer to the hole, continuing in that process until the ball is holed.  Exceptions occur when the chosen ball lies in a hazard (such as wood, water, or bunkers), in which case all three players must play from approximately the same spot and remain inside the hazard.  The other exception is the putting surface, where all three must putt form the same position.

Points System

  • Each hole is worth 2 points and the team with the lowest score wins the hold.  In the event of a tie, each team receives 1 point.
  • Scores must be totaled on the scorecard at the end of the round.  Then signed and dated by the captains.
  • Cards must be dropped off in the pro shop.

 

Make up Matches/No Shows

If a match has to be postponed for any reason.  It must be made up before the following Wednesday’s play.  If one team fails to show up for the makeup or regularly scheduled league match, they will receive no points and the team that shows will receive points equal to the average winning point total for that week.  Makeup matches must be arranged with the pro shop.

 

Substitutes 

Substitutes may be picked up for any match.  Make sure that sub’s are aware of the time and individuals they’ll be playing with.  Members from other teams within the Wednesday night league are not permitted to sub.

Weather
