Make sure to get signed up for our last tournament of the year, the 5-Person Yellow Ball Scramble. It will be held on Saturday, October 13th, with an 11 a.m. shotgun start. The cost is $10 per player for members, $20 per player for non-members.
In this format, four players on the team play a scramble, one player on the team plays the yellow ball. You combine the scramble score with the yellow ball score on each hole for the team score. For instance, if the scramble makes a four on the hole and the yellow ball score is a five on the hole, the team score for that hole is a 9.
Teams establish a rotation that they will maintain throughout the round. For example, on hole #1 if Players A, B, C & D are the scramble team and Player E is playing the yellow ball, then on hole #2, Players B, C, D & E are the scramble team and Player A is playing the yellow ball. The rotation remains the same throughout play, so teams will want to do a little ‘strategizing’ before their round starts.
Every player will be provided with one yellow ball, and a yellow ball must be used by the designated individual on each hole.
The format is a lot of fun, and it’s a great way to wrap up the season. The field size will be limited to 12 teams, so don’t wait too long to sign up. Carts will be $12 per person, and there will be a limit of three carts per group. We’ve got plenty of carts, so no need to reserve them ahead of time.
