GOLF TOURNAMENT RULES
Shotgun Start: All teams will tee off simultaneously at different holes. Each team will receive their starting hole assignment at registration. Men play white tees. Age 65- 74 play senior tees. Age 75+ play at red tees.
Scramble Format: On every hole, each team member hits every shot. The team selects one of them from which to play, and the rest “scrambles” to get their ball. All members then hit from that chosen position. This procedure is repeated until the ball is holed.
Selected Shot: Team members may place his/her ball within one club length of the selected shot but no nearer to the hole. If the shot selected resides in a hazard, bunker, rough, fairway, or fringe of the green, the ball must be played within one club length without improving the lie. (I.e., if you land in a bunker, you cannot use your club length to move the ball out of the sand. Applies to water hazards and OB (out of bounds) as well.
Selected Shot (Putts): Mark the ball that is chosen. Each ball can be hand-placed within a putter-head length of the mark no closer to the hole.
2 Tee Shot Requirement: Each team member contributes at least two drives. It does not matter where the ball ends up as long as each player contributes at least (2) drives during the 18-hole round. Keep track of the scorecard. By the way, drives on Par 3’s count as Tee Shots. Use of Mulligan’s for the Tee Shot Requirement is not only acceptable, it is encouraged! (Except on contest holes.)
Mulligan: Can be used for any shot. A maximum of 2 mulligans per person can be purchased for an additional $20 per person. A team member may not use another member’s mulligan, and any unused mulligans are forfeited.
*Rules may be updated up to a week before the tournament.
Weather: The tournament will take place rain or shine. The decision to close the course due to unsafe playing conditions rests solely with the course. If play is stopped due to severe weather, the number of holes played will determine if the tournament will be rescheduled.
