5-Man Scramble Format: Each of the 5 players hit from the tee, then the team members choose the best of the five shots and all team members then play the second shot no further than one club length from that location, and again choose the best shot. Play continues in this manner until the hole is completed. The team then records its score and maintains that format for all 9 holes.


Rules
-Each player must hit their own ball
- All putts must be finished out
- Shots must be played from the same surface as the original ball (i.e.: If the best shot if in the rough, all five participants must drop with in one club length AND remain in the rough).
- Each team can only use their PGA Professional’s ball once per hole; and can only use a total of six Professional tee shots throughout the 9 holes.
