Gotta have some rules...
GBN is all about fun and fellowship, but our scramble tournaments are in fact competitions. Consequently, we think a few guidelines are in order to help keep everybody on the same page.
In addition to the standard USGA Rules of Golf, GBN has adopted the following philosophies:
- We play a Scramble format, where all players have the opportunity to contribute to the success of their teams regardless of their overall skill level.
- All players should have a reasonable opportunity to participate on a winning team. We do this by assigning teams at random into more or less equally competitive groupings.
- All players get maximum exposure to other GBN Members and Guests. There are no "permanent groupings" in GBN, so you get to meet as many other players as possible.
- Guests can play in as many tournaments as they like, but only Members can earn prizes for Lowest Team Score or Closest to the Pin.
