2015 Turkey Shoot - Spring Hills - SCRAMBLE

Postby Steve H » Tue Oct 06, 2015

Tim - 2015 Turkey Shoot

The 2015 season concluded with a Turkey Shoot Scramble. A casual fun event mostly attended by the Santa Cruz/Spring Hill's family, 82 players were in attendance for this year's tradition. Our 4 hickory teams starting on the difficult 8th and 9th holes.

nice chip Dylan!

The format was blind draw scramble. At round's conclusion, 6 holes were randomly drawn and the totals for these 6 holes were used to calculate a handicap. The resulting handicap was then added or subtracted from the team's 18 hole score.

Results/holes that were picked:

The team of Dana, Paul and Steve just edged out the other groups by a single stroke. Willy, Bob, Susan and Jaime were awarded runner-ups after a back 9 cardoff. "Turkeys" (20 dollar gift certificates) were awarded to the winning players.


Gerry, Stacy, John, and Tim were the only team to hand in a perfect card (no bogeys) with some outstanding scrambling and putting from the group.

A big thanks to the Spring Hills Men's club for inviting us to participate in the annual event. Look forward to doing it again next year!

Been thinking of the Spring Hills Turkey Shoot day and about putting together a no-pressure, no-stress, casual goof-off scramble format for our hickory group's season finale. A few ladies have expressed interest to join our group, but have been intimated by the tournament environment and might be more apt to participate in a scramble.

Let's veer from the standard scramble rules such as "requiring every player to have to use 3 tee shots" or other stressful bullcrap like that. Everyone eventually contributes with a good chip, putt, approach shot etc and this rule is just a nuisance. I've always felt the rule puts unwanted pressure on the new-to-golf-not-so-experienced players.

We can use a blind bogey format for handicap purposes.
Just a head start and probing for ideas. Whadda ya think?

2014 gravy boat winner Dana!

Springer's Clubhouse

Last year we had 60 players (52 members plus our 8 lil 'ol hickory players). We gave out 4 "turkeys" to half our field = Dana, Orion, Jimmy, and Michael.

Hey Steve, Sounds like fun to me. We are planning to be there with Jimmy and Sharron, Lorri and myself as long as Jimmy doesn't have a gig that day. We might need some left handed hickorys for Sharron
Talk soon,
