    NEW - On the day of the event, teams will decide if they will play a Modified Scramble or Scramble format.

    Modified scramble - A modified scramble combines elements of a scramble game with elements of stroke play.  Each player tees off and the group selects the best ball.  All golf balls are moved to that spot then individual stroke play continues until each member of the group has holed out.

    Scramble - Each player tees off on each hole. The best tee shot is selected and all players play their second shot from that spot. The best second shot is determined, then all play their third shot from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.
