“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 to rely on sometimes.

It’s time for a Texas Scramble Pairs Competition

Date: Tuesday 28 April 2020


Venue: Henbury Golf Club

Henbury Hill, Coombe Way, Westbury on Trym, Bristol BS10 7QE
Tel; 01179 950 0044   Club Website

Competition Format

Texas Scramble Pairs

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

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

Each Pair returns one score for each hole

The specifics

After choosing the more suitable tee-shot, both players play again, firstly the one whose ball was chosen and from the spot where the ball came to rest, then the other plays 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 member may fairly play their next shot.

Handicap Allowance

35% of the lower handicap plus 15% of the higher handicap


First, both golfers on a team determine their handicaps.

Then take 35-percent of the lower Golfer handicap;  and add it to 15-percent of the higher Golfer’s handicap.

Let’s do an example.

Golfer A’s handicap is 8 and Golfer B’s is 21.

Thirty-five percent of 8 is 2.8; 15 percent of 21 is 3.15.

So add 2.8 and 3.15 to get 5.95 and this team’s scramble playing handicap is 6

About The Golf Club

Henbury Golf Club in Bristol is situated in a magnificent parkland setting of mature woodlands bordering the famous Blaise Castle Estate.

Fore King Golf Tour At Henbury Golf Club In Bristol

Henbury is a beautiful parkland course in mature woodland providing a number of different challenges. Although the course is not long it can prove difficult to play to your handicap.

Accurate tee shots are required and small greens await your approach shots. Which provides a good test of golf for players of all abilities, and complemented by a most welcoming clubhouse, Henbury is a fine place to enjoy your golf at any time of the year.

It’s one of our favourites and is sure to host multiple Fore King Golf Events throughout the season.

Although late to the game, Steve soon fell in love with the sport and found himself, like many others, addicted to the pursuit of improvement and playing better. He is currently a member of The Kendleshire Golf Club & Hercules Golf Society, as well as running several competitions for Fore King Golf
