Friday Night Mixed Scramble Rules Sheet  / 2018
Event Description-
This is a 9 hole random pick scramble each Friday night. Players are separated into 4 categories based on skill level. Typically skill level is assessed by handicap, but the event coordinator and the pro shop reserve the right to judge skill level when appropriate or necessary. One person per skill category is randomly selected to form a 4 person team. That team is placed randomly on a starting hole and plays a 9 hole scramble (see Format below) turning in their score card to the event coordinator or pro shop at the end of their round.
Each person hits their drive. The “best shot” is then selected by either team consensus or by the team captain. The other three balls are picked up and then each member of the team takes their next shot from the position of that “best shot”. The process is repeated until the ball is holed out.
Friday nights run mid-May through mid-September. Tee off is usually at 5pm but check the board each week for the exact time. Please arrive at least 15mins early so we can take attendance and draw the teams.
Open To:
All are welcome including members, smart card holders, and guests. Please see the pro shop for the prices on golf/carts if you are not a member. The use of motorized carts is optional.
Entry Fee: $5 per person
Please add your name to the sign-up sheet on the board just outside the pro shop or call the pro shop and ask that you be added. Please sign up at least 24hrs prior to the event. The event coordinators cannot guarantee your inclusion in the event if you sign up any later.
100% of the entry fee total is awarded as pro shop credit. Lowest score wins. Payout is as follows:
  • Total of  5 teams or less  pays 2 places 60%- 40%
  • Total of 6/7 teams pays 3 places 50%-30%-20%
  • Total of 8 teams or more pays 4 places 40%-30%-20%-10%
Tiebreakers: Ties are broken by a match of cards using the hole handicaps. If scorecards are identical for the teams that are tied, the tie stands.

  • Any Male of 70 Years of Age may play "Gold" Tees
  • All ladies play from red tees. Men whose age plus handicap is 90 or above may play from the gold tees. Men whose age plus handicap is 100 or above may play from the red tees. All other men play from the white tees.
  • 3 drives maximum per person.
  • No gimme putts. The ball must be holed out.
  • All shots between the tee box and green can be picked, cleaned and placed within one club length no closer to the hole but cannot be “improved” any further. Examples of further improvement include moving from the rough to the fairway, moving from the sand to out of the sand, moving from the fringe to the green, and all other like examples.
  • Prior to putting, the “best shot” selected must be marked either left or right of it’s position so as not to interfere with putting. All players must then place their ball as close as possible to the original position prior to putting. Ball marks, spike marks, or any other abnormality in the line of the putt can be repaired, but there is no ‘relief’, the ball cannot be moved, from the line of the putt.
  • Please see page 2 for special instructions for 3 and 5 person teams
Special instructions for 3 and 5 person teams
In cases where the amount of participants does not allow all teams to be of 4 persons, 3 and 5 person teams must sometimes be created. In these cases there are special rules that 3 and 5 person teams must follow. 
3 person teams:
  • 3 Person teams will be created so that there is always a high and low skilled player on the team
  • All 3 players hit their drives, but not more than 4 drives for any one person
  • A 3 person team will be allowed a 4th shot on all holes
  • All 3 person teams must add their names as they appear on the white board to their scorecard. The names in this order will be the rotation that the team follows to take their 4th shot.
  • The 4th shot is performed on the hole played first by the 1st name on the card. The 4th shot is performed on the hole played next by the 2nd name on the card. The 4th shot is performed on the hole played next by the 3rd name on the card. The rotation begins again on the next hole.    
5 person teams:
  • All five players hit their drives, but not any more than 3 drives can be selected per person.
  • A five person team will be allowed to take 5 shots, except for putting. Putting is considered any shot with any club taken on the green. If your ball is on the apron or fringe of the green, you are not putting even if you use your putter to perform the shot.
  • Five person teams will be allowed 4 putts on each hole.
  • All 5 person teams must add their names as they appear on the white board to their scorecard. The names in this order will be the rotation that the team follows to determine who will sit out of putting by hole.
  • The 1st name on the card will be the person who sits out of putting on the 1st hole played. The 2nd name on the card will sit out of putting on the 2nd hole played. The 3rd name on the card will sit out of putting on the 3rd hole played, and so on.
  • The player sitting out cannot help the other 4 who are putting in any way. This includes reading the putt, practice putting, rolling a ball, and any other forms of assistance.
  • Once 5 holes have been played, each player will have sat out of putting once, and the rotation begins again.  
If you have any questions about Friday night please see the event coordinator Pete Jacques, the Pro Doug Ruttle, or a committee member. Committee members are: Bob Bean (chair), Jacky Hill, Bill Cheely, Reeni Murphy, Ed Murphy, Mark Roberts (alternate).
