Everybody hits one from the tee. Then everybody plays one shot from where the best ball landed. This process continues until the team has put the ball in the hole. You only count the best ball strokes not the number of strokes that you took alltogether.

Example:

Tim hit the best drive. Everybody goes and hits from where Tims ball landed. Ted hit the best second shot and landed on the green; everbody putts from where Ted's ball landed. Mark sinks the put on his first try. The score for this hole is a 3.

Re: Golf Help!

Scrambles are definitely fun to play in regardless of your skill level. If you have 1 person who is consistently decent on a group of 4 you'll play fairly well regardless of what the other 3 do.

Talk to your compadres for shoes. You can probably get away with your favorite tennis shoes. Some better courses get a little finicky about people o the greens without "golf shoes" but you should be ok. If your boys are not familiar with the course and rules, call the club house at the course and ask.
You can buy a bag of tee's at the course if need, they are cheap. If I were you, I would take a dozen balls....maybe a few more if possible. AND, if possible, get some "range balls", or previously owned balls, used? You are going to lose a few if there is ANY substancial wooded area's or water hazards. You DO NOT want to be losing balls all day a $2 a hit? Much better to lose used balls @ .25.....

Re: Golf Help!

As Hog1 said, comfortable tennis shoes will be fine. If you have time, hit up your local sporting goods store and buy a bag of tees for less than $3. While you're there, get yourself a box of golf balls (no need to get anything expensive, don't pay more than $20 for a dozen+) then once you hit the club house, hit up the used ball bin and get yourself another 6-12.

If anything, ask your buddies if you can borrow tees instead of buying them there at the course. I usually carry a spare bag of tees just to have extra.

Re: Golf Help!

Well, looks like my trip is canceled. I setup to meet this guy for some clubs this morning and he didn't show and the course doesn't rent them. Craigslist failed me. Oh well, gives me some time to get some clubs and practice.

Re: Golf Help!

Sorry about the cancelation.....definite pissoff! It might be better to spend some money on a lesson or two, and have the Pro help direct you for clubs....they're very good at that sort of thing............

Re: Golf Help!

Yeah Hog, that's my next move. All in all, it may be for the best. Except I have to work today instead of playing golf on the clock, boo!

Re: Golf Help!

NOT being able to play blows, but seeing a pro will help eliminate many problems fast rather than spend years fighting them

Re: Golf Help!

Sorry to hear about it Daseal. Once you talk to a Pro and get some lessons lined up and he makes suggestions equipment wise, check out Play It Again Sports, Golfdom, or any other place (brick and mortar or online) that sells used equipment. A lot of times the used stuff is immaculate and has been used maybe once or twice before the user sells it to buy something else. No reason to pay full price for brand new equipment when gently used stuff works just as well.

Re: Golf Help!

As BD points out, there are some great deals in used. I regularly browse Ebay looking for...whatever. There are some crazy deals on "Mint" used, and New gear of all golfing descriptions.

Re: Golf Help!

Thanks for the advice guys, maybe we can have a TWP tourny some day. I'm really excited. Any hints on places I can practice (probably just driving/putting) during the winter in the NoVA area? What should I expect to pay for used starter clubs? Just so I have an idea.
