6th Annual NCGA Two-Person Scramble Championship| Poppy Hills| December 16-17, 2019
Entries Close: November 24, 2019
Championship Site: Poppy Hills: $300 per team.
ELIGIBILITY: Both players must be NCGA Members and have a current numeric Handicap Index on their club’s Master Report on the date of registration. Partners need not be members of the same club.
FORMAT: The championship will be 36 holes of stroke play (18 holes per day) in a Scramble format. Teams will be re-paired by score, within their flight, for the second round. Play will be 35% of the lower Course Handicap and 15% of the higher Course Handicap. A side will start the play of each hole and then select the team’s best shot and mark the spot with a tee or ball marker. The partner may place a ball within six inches (no closer to the hole) of the marked spot. The side plays their next stroke from the chosen spot. This procedure is followed on every shot until the ball is holed. Sides are required to select each partner’s tee shot at least six times throughout a round. NOTE: A side may not use the six inches to place a ball outside a hazard or on the putting green without penalty. Partners may play in the order they consider best.
RULES: Rules of event
FLIGHTS: Teams will be divided into three flights based on the team’s Course Handicap (using decimal points).
TEES: Men – 3 Poppy, Women – 1 Poppy
TIES: There will be a playoff to determine first place, in each flight, immediately following the conclusion of play. If a playoff cannot be conducted (decision of the Committee and golf course) the USGA’s recommended method of matching cards will be used. Ties for second or third place will be broken using the USGA recommended method of matching cards. For the purpose of breaking the tie, holes #10-18 is considered the last 9 holes.
