For our upcoming golf outing, we will use the U.S.-style "Best Ball Scramble" format. This involves each player in a foursome hitting a shot from the tee. The team then selects the best of the 4 shots, and drops their ball at that location for their next shot. This process continues from the tee-off, to the fairway, to the green, and then into the hole. The score is recorded for the team only.
The format allows for competition at a team level and encourages strategic thinking. It also ensures that every player can contribute to the team regardless of their skill level. To prevent one player from dominating, there are limits on the use of any one player's shots as "best ball" throughout the day. Teams must be strategic when selecting which ball is the best each round.
Also, we will have some fun ways to provide you opportunities to possibility reduce your scores (mulligans and strings) in the context of supporting our students.
