As is our custom the end of the golf season means one last competitive hurrah in the form of the annual Woodmont Cross Country Event.  This is a Four-Man Scramble Competition played this year as a shotgun starting at 10:30 am on Saturday October 29th across the Ghostbuster 11 as assembled by Dweck & Farrell Associates.   Mish and Aire scanned the low Montrose foothills on the southern end of the property to discover 11 hidden gems to configure into this fine layout.  Five par fours, five par threes, and one par fives make up an array of holes with the distinct feel of the Golden Age to challenge diehard players to play shots they never dreamed of.  Fair, hardly…..Fun, certainly……this is a unique event you don’t want o miss.

The format is a step aside scramble with four tee shots on every hole.  Each subsequent shot is played by three of the teammates.  The player’s whose shot is chosen on the drive will step aside for the next shot and the other three play the approach.  The player that has his shot chosen on the approach will now step aside with the first player back in the mix for the third shot on the hole.  This continues until the ball is holed.  All four guys return to play the tee shot on the next hole.  The other abiding rule, to insure full participation in the team result, is that every player must have his tee shot chosen on one of the five par three holes on the card.

A team scramble handicap is calculated by the USGA suggested formula which is a black box calculation if there has ever been one.  The team handicap is taken off the gross team score for the eleven holes (total par is 40 on the Ghostbusers 11) and sweeps prizes are awarded accordingly to the top finishers.
