Tournament Format

Four-person Florida Scramble, best-ball, best position. On each hole, all players have the opportunity to play every shot. Players select the best shot and play from that location. This procedure is repeated until the ball is holed or until your score reaches par. Then move to the next hole.


  1. Players may improve their positions anywhere on the course by one club length. This club length cannot be used to improve your position by moving from the rough to the fairway, back in bounds or from a hazard.
  2. The worst score any team can make on a hole is par.
  3. Each player must hit and the team must use two drives. Please mark on the scorecard by initial where each players’ drives were used.
  4. All ties will be played off on the scorecard using a predetermined selection of holes in a sudden-death format.
  5. Men will play from the blue tees and women will play from the red tees.
  6. The Boomer Drive is on No. 5. Teams may purchase the Boomer Drive at registration before plays begin or as they arrive at the 5th tee. Boomer Drive will place you approximately 150 yards from the green. You lie one on the Boomer Tee, hitting two.
  7. Each player may purchase two mulligans before the start of play, which may be used only on the greens.
