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 will 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 will features three Age-Flights: 50s, 60s, and 70s and older. The local competitions will be intra-facility, with each course crowning champions in each Age-Flight in both gross and net.

Charity

With a goal of making golf more relaxed, the Senior Scramble is also designed to give back to local and national charitable foundations with each team registration.The Senior Scramble will be supporting the PGA REACH Carolinas Foundation. A portion of each team’s entry fee will go to fund programs that promote golf to juniors, military veterans, and diverse populations. The program also supports the Military Warriors Support Foundation through Homes4WoundedHeroes.
