A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in September is on a golf course in the North Shore. Join your Columbia Alumni and friends for a Best-Ball Scramble at the Glencoe Golf Club, a charming course first established in 1921.
In a Best-Ball Scramble, each player in a 4-some hits their shot, the team selects the best of the 4 shots taken, then each player hits from that spot. This continues from the tee, to the fairway, to the green until the ball is in the hole. The score recorded is for the team only. This format typically allows each person in the 4-some to contribute regardless of skill level. To allow for competition between teams, we’ll seek a reasonable balance of skills across the 4-some’s and have limits on the use of each player’s shots. Prizes will be given at the 19th hole for low team score, closest to a Par 3 pin, longest putt, and possibly others. We look forward to seeing you there!
This event will need a minimum of two 4-somes (8 participants) and be limited to a maximum of four 4-somes (16 participants). Registrations will be closed at the end of the day, Friday, September 16th.
Date/Time: Sunday, September 18th from 1PM – 7:00 PM.
