Format

The Four-Woman Scramble is a 36-hole, team scramble competition

The event is played with 20% of the lowest handicap player, 15% of the second lowest handicap player, 10% third lowest handicap player, and 5% of the highest handicap player.

The format, in addition to the NWAGA Scramble rules, is as follows:
" All team members play from each teeing ground.
" One tee shot is then selected.
" The team member whose shot is selected does not play the next shot. The three-remaining team members play that shot. This procedure is followed until the ball is on the green.
" Once on the green, all members may putt. To speed up play, tap-in putts are allowed, and all teammates have the opportunity to try the original putt.
" Each team member must contribute a minimum of four drives.
" Through the green, a ball may be lifted and cleaned and placed within one club-length of where the ball originally lay, not nearer the hole, within the same playing condition.
