The Golf Association of Michigan and our hosting sponsor, Boyne Resorts, present the 2nd GAM State Scramble Championship.
Teams will be able to select from golf courses in your area based on the four major regions across the state, private and public facilities at the local level.
The Net and Gross winning teams from each local qualifier will advance to one of four Regional Championship sites. Winners from each of the four Regional qualifiers will compete in the State Championship September 19th at Boyne Resorts- Alpine Course.
An added perk to those teams that reach the State Championship, they gain the additional player of a Michigan PGA Section professional of their choice.
A champion will be crowned for the Gross and Net divisions at the tournament
Winning teams of each division will receive a $500 gift certificate for use at Boyne Resorts. The winning professional’s purse could be up to $5,000, determined by participation.
What is the Scramble’s Format?
Format: A (4) Person Step Aside Scramble. All players tee off on each hole. The player whose ball has been selected for play may not play the next shot on the hole being played. This “Step Aside” approach applies for all play through the green, in hazards and on the putting green until the ball is holed.
Eligibility: Each 4-person team must have a total aggregate handicap index of 36.0 or higher with two team members allowed a GAM/USGA Handicap index of less than 10.0 (NEW for 2013). Teams are then handicapped based on the total team index. This is a Net and Gross competition. There will be separate tees for Men, Senior Men (50 years old as of May 1, 2013) and Women.
