“Over to you partner”

When things go wrong in singles, it’s solely down to you to put things right.

We think it’s nice to have a partner or three to rely on sometimes.

How Texas Scramble Works

In Texas Scramble All players tee off, then one of these drives is chosen to be used for the next shot and all players play a shot from where the chosen drive ended up.

From these second shots, one is chosen and all players play a third shot from there, and so on until the ball is holed.

How to place a ball in Texas Scramble

After choosing the more suitable tee-shot, all players play again, firstly the one whose ball was chosen and from the spot where the ball came to rest, then the others play by placing their ball within one card length from that spot, but no closer to the green.

Exception: When the chosen ball was played from a bunker.

In this case the lie can be reconstructed after the first player hits it so that the other team members may fairly play their next shot.

About The Kendleshire

The 18th hole at the Kendleshire

Golf is firmly at the heart of the Kendleshire Experience, and with 27 memorable championship holes spread over nearly 260 acres of the stunning Frome valley, it is no wonder.

Designed by Adrian Stiff, the Hollows and Ruffet Courses were opened in 1997 to much critical acclaim and they both feature a healthy amount of water, such as the “Island Green” 11th hole with Adrian’s trademark sleeper-banks, and provide a challenge to many a good scorecard.

The Peter McEvoy-designed Badminton Course opened in 2001, and was built to compliment its sister courses whilst adding an extra degree of challenge with its undulating greens.

Each of the three courses have their own stand-out holes, and when played in any combination offer tons of golfing enjoyment.

All of the greens are built to USPGA standard and are the foundation of the course’s reputation, and as such the club has always had a soft spikes only policy. This has paid rich dividends as far as maintaining the quality of the putting surfaces.

With a vibrant clubhouse, you can enjoy a beer or two watching from the terrace that overlooks the 18th green and every shot up the final hole is always dramatic.

And remember, the people watching will not know if you are on your way to shooting 65 or 105
