UPDATE JUNE 3, 2020
In response to circumstances created by the Coronavirus pandemic, the format for the 2020 GAM Scramble Championship has been altered. All Regional Qualifiers have been canceled and all eligible teams will be able to sign up to play in the GAM Scramble Championship on Sept. 20-21. PohlCat Championship Golf Course and Mt. Pleasant Country Club will serve as co-hosts.
All players that have registered for a GAM Scramble Regional Qualifier will be refunded their full entry fee. Registration for the Championship is available on GAM.org.
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 2020 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.
The tees will be determined by the GAM Official in charge of the event. The tees played by each respective player will factor in the Handicap Calculation.
Registration - All teams registering to compete in the GAM Scramble must sign up online HERE
Championship Entry Fee - $420/Team (Includes 2 Rounds of Golf, Range, Cart, Sunday Dinner)
