    *Scramble: A scramble works this way: Each player on the team (usually groups of four but groups of three work also) tees off. The best of the four shots is selected, all players move their balls to that spot and play their second shots from a point that is within one club length of the selected shot. The best of the second shots is selected, all players move their balls to that spot and play their third shots; and so on until the ball is holed. If you miss your putt, do not "tap in" your putt until all players have played from that spot, otherwise your putt will count as the team score and the other players do not get a chance to hole out in fewer strokes!

    Will you be there? Hope you can, be great to see you again. I'd be delighted to have you on my team. I'm requesting 1 spot for my instructor if he wants, but rigsby runs the Scramble and has the final say. I've not asked for anyone else to be with me at this point, in fact only did my confirmation today.

    So you'll be in New Jersey, does make it tough. But I do love this scramble format. Very low pressure, and allows for players with a wide range of abilities to all go out together and have a good time.

    Golfers who are highly competitive can compete all they like, while those like me who are marginal players aren't made to feel like fools, we can have a great time, too, in the same tournament.

    I highly recommend these scrambles, and rigsby has them beautifully organized. We use lovely courses, and rigsby and the staff have them meticulously planned so you need simply arrive, check off your name, with everything done for you. And at $36.50 for a full 18 holes with a great group of people you can't have a better time.

    Ask rigsby. I know we get range balls for practice before we head out, and naturally the assigned carts are included, on which our bags are loaded for us by number, all lined up for our shotgun start, our names on the windshields. Club staff will escort us to our starting tees.

    On the course we have cash refreshment carts circulating, that in past scrambles included beer (and maybe wine coolers - can't recall, I don't drink and "drive"). Afterwards we'll have the winners announced at a club room over cocktails, with prizes. I haven't been to Inverrary before so I don't know the facility specifics. And I hate cigars anyway. icon_razz.gif
