Scramble Rules

32nd Annual Harper College Educational Foundation

Scramble Rules

  1. During today’s outing, a “shotgun start” means play will begin when teams reach their assigned tees and hear a starting horn. Team A precedes Team B.
  2. Each team member will hit every shot. Play should continue from the location of the best ball rather than playing each player’s ball. After the team members decide which shot they will use, all players will hit from that location only. This procedure is repeated until the ball is in the hole.
  3. Each team member will place his/her ball within one club length of the selected shot—no closer. If the selected shot is played from a hazard, sand trap, rough, second cut of rough, fairway or fringe of the green, the ball will be placed within one club length of the selected shot. However, it must remain in the hazard, sand trap, rough, second cut of rough, fairway or fringe of the green.
  4. To qualify for the hole-in-one prize, a player must use his/her first shot from the tee.
  5. In the interest of time:
  • Be aware of your foursome’s speed of play; maintain your interval in relation to the group head.
  • Please play ready to golf; whoever is ready to hit, go ahead and hit.
  • Three-putt maximum per hole.

6. Mulligans will be sold for $20 each or as part of a bundle package. Mulligan tokens are hard candies. In order to receive a one-time “do-over,” golfers may eat or discard their mulligan token. Mulligans are performed on the honor system. There is a limit of one mulligan per golfer.

7. Rather than requiring cash, golfers can now participate in bets, games, and Putt for Promise using a tab. To place something on your tab, tell the volunteer at Holes 7, 8, 9, 15, or the Halfway House and fill out your address, amount, and signature. You can settle up after the Awards Dinner or we will invoice you. Please note that only contributions for contests, the Golf Ball launcher, and Putt for Promise are eligible; charges to Inverness Golf Club must be paid at the time of transaction.

8. Each foursome will be assigned a “Group Captain” who will meet with the Inverness golf pro before the tournament and who will assist each foursome in following tournament rules.

9. In the interest of our guests' safety, we will not host an Awards Dinner this year. That means there will be no paddle raise or auction. Instead, guests are invited to Score for Scholarships at the Halfway House between Holes 14 and 15. Anyone pledging at least $134 (the price of 1 credit hour at Harper), is invited to Score for Scholarships on our mini-golf hole. Make a hole in one, win a prize, and help Harper students succeed.

Golf Contests

Hole #1: Straightest Drive – Men and Women

Inverness Golf Club will mark the fairway with a line down the middle. The minimum drive must reach 100 yards to qualify. You must stay at or behind your tee. The golfer who hits closest to that line (one man and one woman) will receive Titleist Pro V1 golf balls.

Holes #7, #9, #15: Scholar’s Circle 

To play the Scholar’s Circle, golfers may bet a minimum of $5 and a maximum of $25. If you hit the ball into the circle (a 20-foot radius), the payoff is two times the bet. Winnings will be paid by check and mailed after the event.

Hole #8: Golf Ball Launcher

Use a high-powered cannon to shoot your golf ball in place of your first stroke. $10 per golfer, $30 per foursome.

Hole #9: Closest to the Pin - Men and Women

Closest to the Pin: Golfers must be at or behind their tee in order to win. There will be separate tees for men and women. The closest-to-the-pin men and women’s winners will receive Titleist Pro V1 golf balls.

Hole #16: Longest Drive – Men and Women

This one is on the honor system. Your first drive from the tee will be counted. Your drive must be in the fairway. Mark your position with the markers provided. The longest drive winners (one man and one woman) will receive Titleist Pro V1 golf balls.

Hole #18: Longest Putt-Men and Women

A marker will be available on the green to indicate the furthest putt to the hole. If your putt is successful, a marker will record your putt length. The longest putt winners (one man and one woman) will receive Titleist Pro V1 golf balls.

Tournament Winners

Players in our Top 3 Foursomes win Titleist Pro V1 golf balls. Prizes will be mailed to the winners.
