CASI Golf League - New and Fun
CASI Golf League will use a scramble format. Teams will be co-ed when possible. Scramble golf gets the distinction of being the type of game where player input carries a lot of weight. Players will be placed on teams of 3-4 players, or you can determine your own team during registration. Each player in the team gets to hit a tee shot. Afterwards, all the players in the scramble team reach consensus on which shot was “best.” This depends on which shot had the longest drive or which one landed closest to the fairway. From there, the position of the best shot is marked on the course. Players then take their next shot from that position, take a consensus again, and select another position for the next best shot. This process is repeated throughout the hole. The team score in scramble golf is denoted by the total of “best shots.”  Prizes will be awarded at the end of the season. Each week session will consist of 9 holes with a cart. 
Thursdays, May 5 - September 29
8:30 am - Noon *Tee times will vary between 8:30-10 AM
$20 registration fee paid at CASI to join by April 29, 2022
