Texas Scramble guidelines


There have been changes to the way that Texas Scrambles are played under the New Rules of Golf 2019 and the WHS, as descibed in:

Rules of Golf, Committee Procedures 9 

and

MGC Terms of Competition, Appendix L.

Significant changes to the way that scrambles are played at Mapperley include:

  • Placing on the fairway within 12 inches rather than the previous 6 inches. This gives more scope for finding a good lie when the first players have removed large divots.

  • Short-handed teams receive an additional stroke allowance equivalent to having an extra player with a Course Handicap of 20.0
