So...no stress to post good individual shots and scores...just have fun and enjoy the surroundings in a FUN and CASUAL atmosphere.

4-Person Scramble

Official Rules and Guidelines

1) All Players tee off: Men from the Whites ladies from the Reds

Note: Teams must use a Tee Shot of ALL 4 players a minimun of 3 times

(this is where a bit of team strategy comes into play)

2) Team decides which is the best of the 4 to play and other 3 balls are picked up and dropped and played from that position as close as possible No, you don't have to hit out of divots or bad lies, etc. but putting must be the Exact spot. Suggestion: Decide your order of player shot play as the round goes along (This is important for strategy as well, especially for putting)

3) This process continues until the hole is completed.

-- Each team will please select a Scorekeeper to tally the scores for each hole as well as tracking the drives taken by members (to ensure the 3 minimum) On the Scorecard, enter all 4 players names and simply enter the score for each hole. Please circle any Birdies, Double Circle any Eagles - this will enter into the Tie-breaker process (see below). Tally up scores carefully and put down Final score and enter example: 68 -3.

Winning score is the Lowest total after 18 holes

PRIZE HOLES

Hole # 11 CLOSEST TO THE PIN WINNER MEN $20.00 WOMEN $20.00

Hole # 14 LONGEST DRIVE* FOR MEN $20.00 WOMEN $20.00

end of flight must be within the fairway

Hole # 17 CLOSEST TO THE PIN WINNER MEN $20.00 WOMEN $20.00

--Tie-breaker rules: if 2 or more Teams have the same total score: 1st tie-breaker: the team with the FIRST sub-par hole wins. Example; Team 3 birdies # 2 and Team 5 birdies # 4 = Team 3 wins. If there are tied holes (teams sub-par the same hole) the process continues until the NEXT sub-par hole is found that is not matched. Obviously any Eagles (good luck) would beat out any Birdies. Note: Since we will probably use a "Shot-gun start" please understand that this is 1st sub-par score per the score card and not what hole your team has started at. Hole # 1 is first on the Tie-breaker list and so on ...

Okay, I think this covers most of it but send me any questions you may have!

THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!

***PLEASE MESSAGE IF YOU HAVE A TEAM, HAVE SOMEONE YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH (GIVE THEIR 1ST NAMES AND LAST INIT.), OR SIMPLY WANT TO PLAY AND I WILL ARRANGE TEAMS. PLEASE NOTE YOUR EXPERIENCE OF PLAY TO ATTEMPT TO LEVEL THE FIELD.

A I'M AN EXPERIENCED PLAYER

B) I'M A SOMETIMES-GOLFER AND DO OKAY

C) I JUST STARTED TO GOLF OR WANT TO GIVE IT A TRY

D) I DON'T PLAY GOLF BUT LOVE PEOPLE, EXCERCISE, TROPICAL SETTINGS AND PROMISE TO WEAR SOMETHING CUTE (and can obtain clubs or bring someone I can share their clubs with)

    Kevin - one more thing. Since I'm cancelling so late, I'd be OK with paying for the meal and the extra for prizes. I'll give it to you next time I see you.

      I have moved a couple people around which caused a small domino effect to other teams (see Discussions Board) and will surely create an onset to the disasterous fall of China. Ok, just kidding on the fall of China part. No Red Alert. No worries.

    Kevin, I changed my RSVP to "no" this morning since my daughter will be coming home from the hospital on Saturday with her newborn twin boys, and I couldn't possibly miss that! I told them for the last 2 months that they must not have the babies on Sept. 29, and they didn't! I should have also told them not to deliver on Sept. 27 too! Thanks for planning such an amazing golf event...I know I'm going to be missing a good event. I hope you consider plannig another in the near future since you did such a great job planning this one! Have fun everyone!

    Hi...I started playing golf about 6 months ago so am a beginner. But I love the game! Please put me with a group that doesn't mind a beginner (that loves the game). So, we pay the fees at the golf course on Sept. 29, correct?

    A couple more Adjustments have been updated to the Event.
    Since it looks like we will arrive to the 48 participants (max) I have added to the Prize Pool as follows;
    1) Added closest to the Pin on 2 holes WOMEN previously all. Now there is a male winner and a female winner for each hole.
    2) Added contributions to the door prizes

      Hi Kevin, unfortunately my guest and I are not going to be able to make it on that date. It sounds like a lot of fun. I will hole on to your ticket for Journey. We can exchange addresses and I can mail it to you and you can send me a check for it or we can meet up prior to event. Thanks!

    I thought it best to note my experience as "B - a sometimes golfer that does OK." I hope my experience level doesn't negatively impact my teammates!

    Nancy, the NEXT thing to do is become an expert putter (if I decide to putt you 2 on MY team...just kidding). Just sit tight and relax and allow the list to grow, we have over a month and a half. Keep a look out for comments and updates.
    Reminder to all, you can invite up to 3 Guests!

    I'm moving to FL early Sept and anxious to meet new friends! Sounds like a great event.

    August 5, 2012

    • Maureen M

      I'm an experienced golfer, and I love to golf, but I'm not a great golfer. Since I'll be new to the area and don't know anyone to suggest for a foursome, I'm good with whatever you decide.

      August 6, 2012

    • Maureen M

      Thanks Kenny! I'm leaving so many great friends in Pittsburgh, and hope to meet many new friends in FL.

    Hi Nancy and Rick and all others, once the event gets nearer I will go through the sign up list and put Teams together starting with requests on who wants to play with whom etc. etc. and assume that those who do not send a message "I wanna play with so and so" will all be placed to Teams randomly ... that is why an experience Level is important...see th bottom of the home page here. Stay tuned.
    (FYI, I don't have any one on my team yet. volunteers?)

    August 6, 2012

  • Nancy M.

    rick and I would like to play. we are both experienced golfers but not very good. double boggy most of the time. we would like to play together on a team... but only have the two of us. Let us know what we need to do next
