The 2019 GAM Scramble State Championship
September 15-16, 2019
Tullymore Golf Resort
Format - 4 Person Team “Step aside” Scramble
“Step Aside:” On each hole, members of the team may hit a tee shot from their designated tee. The team then selects one of the tee shots and marks the spot from which to play. The player whose shot is selected WILL NOT play the next shot (Step Aside). This procedure is repeated until the ball is holed.
Forming a Team - Teams may be made up of any four amateur GAM members – Men, Women, Senior Men, Super Senior Men, and/or Senior Women, each with a valid GAM/USGA Handicap Index. A team’s total index must equal 36.0 or higher.
- Teams cannot have more than two players with a GAM/USGA Handicap Index lower than 10.0.
- In 2019 teams will continue to be playing in eight-somes.
Handicaps – Individual player's indexes are based off their current GAM/USGA Handicap Index. A team’s handicap is based on the total of all four players’ lowest indexes and a Team Handicap is assigned based on the GAM Scramble Team Handicap Table (See GAM Scramble Rules/Policies)
Tees/Yardage - 5 sets of tees.
