Two Person Texas Scramble Format and Rules: 

Both players in your team tee off at every hole - After both players have teed off, the tee shot that is deemed to be the best is used on that hole.

Note: Selected shots may be lifted, cleaned and ‘placed’ within 6 inches (width of scorecard) if it is in closely mown areas, i.e. fairway, fringe, tee box. But if selected shot comes to rest in the rough or bunker, player may lift and clean the ball but must ‘drop’ the ball within 6 inches (width of scorecard) so it’s in the same condition.

For each successive shot, select the preferred shot and both players hit from within one width of a scorecard, no nearer the hole under the same noted rules above.

Once on the green, each player may putt from within six inches of the selected ball, no nearer the hole.  The first ball in the hole is the scoring ball for the group. 

-- Must use a minimum of 3 tee shots from each player.

Nearest the Pins for Ladies and Gents on 5th Hole

Maximum Playing Handicap Allowances: Men 40 - Ladies 54


Stroke-play (Medal) record the gross score for each hole on the scorecard under the player who’s tee shot was used. All scorecards must be signed and verified before turning in to the Committee member handling scoring on the day. The team handicap will be deducted from the team gross score.

  • 2 Person Team Handicap allowance: 35% of lowest and 15% of highest course handicap
