How it works: Begins like a scramble, with each player hitting a drive and the group playing their second shots from the “best” tee ball. However, group plays their own ball for the rest of the hole. Best one/two scores count for the group.
One of our favorites, combining the benefits of the scramble and best ball formats. On the majority of holes, players will be hitting from the fairway or a desirable position, while also maintaining the sense one gets to play their own ball from that point out.
We recommend this for outings that want to have a tenor of competition without being overly serious. Likewise good for longer courses, as the scramble aspect off the tee should alleviate some of the course’s distance-related challenges.
