Texas Scramble competition rules


1.  Each team to consist of four players (or three players depending on the number who enter the event).

2.  Handicap Allowance: Team of four = 1/10th of combined handicaps, Team of three = 1/8th of combined handicaps.

3.  All players tee off on all holes. A minimum of 3 tee shots per player must be used (minimum of 4 tee shots for teams of three).

4.  Nominated Team Captain then selects the drive to be used and marks the position with a tee peg (not nearer the hole). The other players then retrieve their balls.

5.  All players then play within 300mm (12 inches) of the tee peg, not nearer the hole, in any order.
A ball may be placed on the fairway, but must be dropped from any other area, including hazards.

6.  The above method of play is followed until the green is reached.

7.  On the green the same method applies. The ball chosen is marked and all players putt from that spot in any order.

8.  Each player marks the ball after putting. Play continues from each position until the ball is holed.
If a player putts and misses and then inadvertently knocks the ball into the hole, that score counts.

9.  The gross score for each hole should be marked on the score card against the player whose tee shot was used, e.g. A, B, C or D.
