Brownwood Rotary Club will host its third annual 3-Person Scramble Golf event March 19 at the Brownwood Country Club.
Registration and games will begin at noon before the shotgun start at 1:30. The golf scramble’s proceeds will benefit the Rotary Scholarship Fund, which is distributed to Brown County high school seniors.
In golf scramble, which can be played by up to four players, each golfer tees off and the team selects the best shot. Players then take their next shots from there. The process continues until a ball is sunk. All holes are played this way. A scramble speeds up pace of play and allows players of all levels to compete with each other.
‘We like doing this because it’s a fun way to get out and meet different people,” said rotary club member and event working committee Chip Camp. “Win some prizes and contribute to scholarships so these kids can go to college.”
It is the first time the golf scramble will be played at the Country Club, after being played at The Hideout Golf Club the past two years.
Cash prizes and skills contest will also be available, including a $5,000, hole-in-one challenge, and a competition for the longest drive.
The cost is $75 per player and may be paid in advance or on the day of the tournament. Those interested may either call the country club pro shop at 325-643-1023, or mail their entry form and fee: Brownwood Rotary Club, P.O. Box 701, Brownwood, TX 76804.
