2023 AAU OHIO DISTRICT GOLF RULES
The current USGA Rules of Golf and the Rules of Golf will govern all competitions, with
the exception of the following rules, which are in effect for AAU Golf National Scramble
competitions. Any additional local rules will be presented before play begins. All players
must have an active, current AAU Golf Athlete Membership.
1) All players tee off at each hole. The best or strategic shot is then selected as the spot
from which the next shots will be played. The ball(s) of the other team member(s) are
then picked up and moved to that spot. From that location, all team members will play a
second shot. This same procedure is followed until the ball is holed.
1B) Men tee off from the white tees and women from the red tees. Seniors may play
2) All team members may clean and place their ball. The balls are to be placed within
one club length of the landing spot, no closer to the hole(except on the green, where a
ball marker shall be placed within one putter head length to the right or left of the ball to
ensure that all balls will be played from the same location).
3) If a selected shot is played from a hazard, bunker or the rough, the ball must be
placed within a club length of the original position, no nearer the hole, and must remain
in the hazard, bunker or the rough. When the hazard is a bunker, the bunker may be
raked after each shot. The grass surrounding the sand bunker is not part of the hazard.
If any part of the ball rests on a hazard line, it is considered to be in the hazard.
4) A ball may not be placed on the green when the selected location is off the green.
5) Continuous putting is encouraged to speed up play. A team may knock in a short putt
before trying to sink a long putt.
6) When a selected ball is eligible for relief under the USGA Rules, relief should be
taken before marking the selected location.
7) Threesomes are permitted to rotate a fourth shot from each ball location. In
other words, one person will be hitting twice from each shot position. However,
the person hitting two shots cannot do so consecutively.(For example, it’s player
A’s turn to hit two shots. The other team members must play their ball in between
player A’s two shots.)
The rotation should be set at the beginning of the round, and remain constant
An example of this would be:
Hole 1 shot 1: ABCA
Hole 1 shot 2: BCAB
Hole 1 shot 3: CABC
Hole 1 shot 4: ABCA
Hole 2 shot 1: BCAB
You cannot decide half way thru the round, or at a tough hole for example, who’s
shot is played. It must be consistent through the round.
8) A minimum number of drives must be used from each player on the team. a)
In a 4-Player Scramble, each team in all flights must use three drives from each
player. b) In a 2-Player Scramble, each team in all flights must use six drives
from each player. c) Each player’s required drives must be clearly indicated on
9) Violation of the AAU Golf National Scramble Scramble Rules will result in a
team being disqualified.
10) AAU Golf National Scramble Pace of Play Policy will be in effect.
11) All puts must be holed out, no gimmies.
12) No mulligans are allowed.
13) In the event of a tie, the staff will compare the scorecard of the teams who
have tied, starting with the hole that is the number 1 handicap, continuing until
one team has the lowest score on a hole.
14) GHIN handicaps are not counted in this event.
