Team Scramble: A Format for Excitement

Each local National Kidney Foundation Golf Classic is conducted using a four-person team scramble format. Each team member tees off, and the best drive is selected. All four players then play from that spot. This process continues until the hole is completed. Each team must use at least three drives from each player during the course of the round. The team with the lowest score wins.

The team scramble format provides everyone — men and women, new golfers and experienced low-handicappers with a competitive, yet social day of golf, as well as an opportunity to win valuable prizes and possibly an invitation to Pebble Beach.

Requirements for Handicap Index Division

Any amateur golfer, male or female, is eligible to compete in the National Kidney Foundation Golf Classic.

  • Every team competing in the NKF Golf Classic must consist of four amateur golfers whose total USGA Handicap Index is 42.0 or more.
  • Only one golfer on each team may have a USGA Handicap Index of 8.0 or less.
  • Golfer's handicaps are effective as of the latter of:
    • (i) the day of registration for the tournament or
      (ii) the date 60 days prior to the event.
  • Each golfer with a USGA Handicap Index will be required to present a current copy of his or her handicap card to the tournament committee at the time of registration.
  • All golfers will be required to present a photo ID on the day of the event.
  • Any team that contains a member who does not comply with each of these requirements may compete in the Gross Division.
  • The National Kidney Foundation has the right to deny the entry of any players or teams.

New for 2014, a Gross Division has been added for teams that do not have Handicap Indexes. Top teams in both Divisions will be invited to compete at the National Finals (additional fees required).
