Wildwood CC Scramble Rules:

A Scramble format involves four golfers all on the same team playing together. Each team member hits a tee shot on each hole. The team then collectively decides which of the four balls is in the best position to play next. After the team decides which ball is best, they mark its position; usually with a tee, a coin, a ball-marker, or whatever may seem to be luckiest for that day. Each player retrieves their ball (if it is still retrievable), and plays a shot from the new designated position. This procedure is repeated for each shot until a ball is holed.


Wildwood Specific Rules –

  • All Male Under the age of 65 will play the Blue Tees
  • 65 and Older will play the White Tees
  • All Female Golfers will Play from the Red Tees
