July 28, 2019 – The Senior Scramble is a new and exciting program created for amateur golfers, ages 50 and older, with the goal of “relaxing” the game. Seniors play on two-player teams in a scramble format (Doubles Golf™), which allows for a less stressful and more “relaxed” approach to golf competition, where teammates can accent each other’s strengths while offsetting each other’s weaknesses.
This innovative Doubles Golf™ program features three Age-Flights: 50s, 60s, and 70s and older. The local competitions are intra-facility, with each course crowning champions in each Age-Flight in both gross and net.
Flight Champions from each participating course may have the opportunity to advance to a “Senior Scramble” Section Qualifier. Two Section Champion teams, in each Flight, will play in the 2019 National Finals, at Phoenix Country Club during the Schwab Cup Championship!
The inaugural event produced six (6) Carolinas Champions!
67 (-5) Pat Slovonic & Ty Grove from Stonebridge Golf Club
64 (-8) Jeffery Gossett & John Hazzard from Spring Valley Country Club
65 (-7) Bob DeJianne & Steve Kiritsy from Dolphin Head Golf Club
64 (-8) Greg Goin & Chris Keller from Greensboro National Golf Club
66 (-6) Dennis Toothman & Rick LaFata from Wildwood Green Golf Club
64 (-8) Donald Hardy & Bobby Pierce from Shannon Greens Golf Club
There were two teams from the Carolinas who posted the best score out of all of the East Qualifiers (Carolinas, Georgia, North Florida, South Florida) and these teams will be invited to the National Finals held on November 11th, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona. Congratulations to the teams of Bob DeJianne & Steve Kiritsy and Dennis Toothman & Rick LaFata, who have qualified for our National Finals!
