PLAYERS

FORMAT
36-hole Gross four-person modified scramble. In a Scramble, each player plays from the teeing area on each hole, one of the tee shots is selected and all the players play their second shots from that spot. One of the second shots is then selected, and all players play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed. This format is modified as follows: The player whose shot is selected does not play the next shot (exception: on the putting green, all team members may putt). Each team member must contribute at least four tee shots.

FLIGHTS
Up to four flights will be created in advance based on Team Handicap (combination of Handicap Indexes). If two or more teams have the same team handicap, the order will be determined by the team with the lowest handicapped player. Once Flighted, golfers will compete in a 36-hole Gross modified Scramble within their respective Flights.

HANDICAP ALLOWANCE
Based on August 22 Handicap Revision. A team’s Playing Handicap is comprised of 25% of the lowest player’s Course Handicap, 20% of the second lowest player’s Course Handicap, 15% of the third lowest player’s Course Handicap and 10% of the highest player’s Course Handicap figured to the hundredth decimal point. Maximum Individual Handicap Index is 40.4. Handicap Allowances are only used for Flighting purposes. The event itself is a Gross tournament.

PAIRINGS
For the first round of competition, teams are paired based on Team Handicap (combination of Handicap Indexes) with the lowest Team Handicaps beginning play on hole 1. Pairings for the second round will be based on Gross team score within flights beginning on hole 1.

CADDIES
Caddies are prohibited.

PERSONAL APPEARANCE, FOOTWEAR
Players must be neat in appearance with respect to clothing and personal grooming. Traditional spikes are prohibited. Model Local Rule G-7.

DETERMINING TIES
Any first place ties for overall Gross, and Gross flights will be determined by a scorecard play-off using the following method as recommended by the USGA.

Scorecard Play-Off Procedure:
The winner will be based on the best score for the last round. If the tying sides have the same score for the last round or if the competition consists of a single round, the winner will be determined based on the score for holes 10-18, holes 13-18, holes 16-18 and finally the 18th hole. If there is still a tie, then the last six holes, three holes and final hole of the first nine holes will be considered in turn. If the round is less than 18 holes, the number of holes used in matching scores may be adjusted. For net competition, if the last nine, last six, last three holes scenario is used, one-half, one-third, one-sixth, etc. of the handicaps should be deducted from the score for those holes.

SCORE POSTING
Scramble scores are not eligible to post for handicap purposes.
