This is a stroke play competition, with modified Texas Scramble rules as follows:

  • Both players in each team play shots off all tees in any order, as agreed between them, and they choose the more suitable ball to continue the hole.

    • At least eight tee-shots must be chosen by each of the two players during the round.
  • After choosing the more suitable tee-shot, both players play again, firstly the one whose ball was chosen and from the spot where the ball came to rest, then the other plays by placing his/her ball within one card length from that spot, but no closer to the green. Exception: When the chosen ball was played from a bunker. In this case the lie must firstly be reconstructed after the first player hits it so that the other team member may fairly play his next shot.

  • The same procedure of play is repeated until reaching the green.

  • Once on the green, the better ball is chosen and only it is then played alternately by each team member until it is holed out, with the first putt being stroked by player whose ball was not chosen;

  • The chosen ball on the green cannot be replaced by another, even by the one that was not chosen.

  • Any infringement of these rules will lead to disqualification of the team.

  • The result of each team shall be based on the 18-hole total of strokes played.


  • The maximum EGA handicaps allowed are 28 for men and 36 for ladies. Higher handicaps shall be adjusted by the tournament committee.

  • The team playing handicaps will be calculated as follows:  40% of the higher playing handicap and 60% of the lower playing handicap.

Field limited to 60
