SMC Business Council Golf Outing


The First Tee of Pittsburgh at Pleasant Ridge



Monday, August 20, 2018

River Forest Country Club in Freeport, PA



The Format for this event will be a SHAMBLE.  With our SHAMBLE format, low handicap players (9hcp and under) play their own ball and post an individual score.  Most low handicappers tell us that this is how they prefer to play.  For mid and high handicap players (10hcp and above), they will play their own ball too, but they will also have the opportunity to move their ball to the best tee shot in their group and play-in from there.  Every player will record their own score AND each foursome will use the best score in their group on each hole to represent their team.

We feel like this SHAMBLE format is great for allowing low handicap players to test themselves against the course as well as compete within their foursome just like a regular day of golf.  Allowing the higher handicap players to move their ball after their tee-shot is a fun way to handicap the event and help everyone have an enjoyable and competitive day.
