Golf Tournament Format

The golf format for the event is a 4-person “Scramble” with the score of your group counting on each hole and accumulated for a total score. The “Scramble” will consist of all four golfers teeing off on every hole. The group then chooses the best tee shot and all four golfers play from this position until the ball is holed. Second shots must be placed within one club length of the selected tee shot and must be placed in the same condition (A ball in the rough must be played from the rough by all four players, a ball in the bunker must be played from that bunker by all four players, etc.)

Fishing Derby

A golfer from each foursome will fish the beautiful lakes of Persimmon Woods Golf Club with a DSAGSL Self-Advocate Ambassador right before the tournament.  For every fish you and your ambassador teammate catch, your foursome will be able to take 1/2 a stroke off of your final golf score.   It’s a cherished tradition!
