Texas Scramble or Stableford. Each player must choose which format they wish to play when registering for the tournament.

The Stableford format is competitive and handicap effective.

Texas Scramble format is played in pairs and is more relaxed.

Texas Scramble Rules
  • Each team will consist of two players. 
  • Both players can tee off at each hole. 
  • The nominated team captain then selects the best drive and marks the position (within 15cm) (not nearer the hole). A minimum of six tee shots per player to be used.
  • The other player then retrieves their ball. 
  • The player whose ball has been chosen then plays his next shot first. 
  • The remaining player then plays within 15 cm of the marker (not nearer the hole). Note! Golf balls shall be placed on closely mown areas and dropped if the chosen ball in play is in the rough or a hazard.
  • The above method of play is followed until the green is reached. 
  • On the green the same method applies. The ball chosen is marked by a putter head length and players putt from the same spot in turn.
  • Each player must mark the ball after putting. Play continues until the ball is holed.
  • The score is the total number of shots from the chosen spots (including the tee shot).
  • Handicap. The team handicap is calculated by adding the two handicaps of the players and dividing by two, including fractions.
  • Note! If a player putts and misses but then inadvertently knocks the ball into the hole, then that score counts. At the end of the round the total for each hole is added together and the handicap subtracted to give the total net score for the round. The winning team will be the one with the lowest score. All other rules of golf apply to the "Ball in Play". In particular please be aware of Rule 14.2. Team members are not allowed to position themselves on or close to an extension of the line of play or the line of putt behind the ball.
