What is a "Scramble?"
Two teams of 2 golfers each, will start at their assigned tee time. Teams will alternate teeing off, with 1st golfer determined by spinning a golf tee before play starts.
Once everyone has hit, each team will choose which of their 2 initial shots they will continue to play (closest to the green is a good idea…). Then, both golfers hit again from that location, then choose the best of those 2nd shots and both hit again, then 3rd, and so on, until you putt it in!
Each team records the total of these “best shot” strokes on each hole, and the lowest total for the round wins.
The idea is to give both experienced and beginner golfers the chance to contribute, without getting too discouraged for a bad shot (it happens!). Have fun!
The Savory Institute?
Our “Golf to Give” event goes to benefit the Savory Institute, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization who’s Mission is:
“TO FACILITATE THE LARGE-SCALE REGENERATION OF THE WORLD’S GRASSLANDS AND THE LIVELIHOODS OF THEIR INHABITANTS, THROUGH HOLISTIC MANAGEMENT.”
Toward their goal, the Savory Institute works with farmers in the U.S. and worldwide to cultivate sustainable practices in land use through handling of grazing animals, crop rotation, planting and water usage and much more.
All proceeds from your golf round, raffle tickets, direct donations, along with an additional $1,000 from California’s Best Lenders will go to support this worthy cause.
