    Four-Person Scramble

    Each member of your scramble team will tee off from your starting hole. Choose the best tee shot. Mark the spot of the best tee shot with a golf tee or ball marker. Direct your playing partners to pick up their ball and hit from within one club length of the marked spot (cannot place ball closer to the hole). Continue selecting the best shot until one player hits the ball in the hole for par or better. If your team cannot make par, pick up, record a bogey, and move to the next hole. Tie breakers will be determined by comparing scores on 1st handicap hole through 18th if needed.
