Thank you for playing today! Play will begin promptly at 12:30pm in a shotgun format. Please check with our Golf Team or posted starting sheets for your starting hole assignment. Thank You!

FORMAT
18 Hole Scramble. Each player will hit a tee shot. The team will select the ball in the best position, then all players will play from the same position until the ball is holed. After selecting the ball in the best position, those players who have lifted their ball may, lift, clean, and place your ball within one club length of the selected position. However, you may not change the condition of the lie. Example: a ball in the rough must stay in the rough. All shots played on a hole after a drive has been selected must be played as it lies.
