Best Ball Scramble Rules
1. Choose a team captain; this person will make final decisions and keep score. All teams are scored GROSS SCORE of the ONE BEST BALL, WITHOUT ANY HANDICAP ADJUSTMENT.
2. Every player tees off every hole. As a team, decide which ball to use after every player has teed off. You must use 2 tee shots from three players (not all four), not including par threes; keep track of this on the scorecard.
3. After selecting the tee shot, put a tee to mark the ball. All players drop, or place, within a club-length of the tee; (on the green, within 3 inches of ball-mark). The lie can be moderately improved by your placement, yet must not go from a bunker into say a fairway.
4. Each player will hit each future shot from the best team position sequentially, until your team has finished the hole. There is a maximum triple bogie on any hole for a team.
5. Most holes have two groups, so speed of play is crucial. Please do not waste time looking for lost balls. Please keep up with the group in front of you!! We will play in 4.50 hours.

Plates in fairways are marked at the 100, 150, 200, and 250 yard points from green.
Hole#5 – The dramatic Par 5. We will use a high, back tee, so if none on your team clears the hazard, use the ladies tee box, and you will be hitting your third stroke from there.
Hole#11 – if you hit long out-of-bounds into the water, you drop at the back of the green, at point of crossing the hazard….in a good lie in the rough, yet on a flatter grassy area. You are hitting your third shot from this position.
