Rules for a Scramble Golf Tournament
The “Scramble” format is probably the most popular format used in tournament play for associations, fundraisers and charity events. In a four-man scramble format, four players play together as a team. Each player on the team tees off from the tee box. The team members select the best tee shot of the four, and ALL golfers then play their second shot from that location.
Play is continued in this manner until the hole is completed. After the hole is completed, the team score is recorded and play continues under the same guidelines on the remaining holes.
