Mentor/ junior scramble tournament
Posted 12 December 2018 - 01:49 PM
- Parent Tees off from Normal "white" tees, Child tees off from age appropriate tees.
- Parent plays second shot of childs ball, Child plays second shot of Parents ball.
- then pick best ball and play alternate shot in
Great format for mixed adult/kid matches or even mens/ladies. If the junior can hit the ball decent off the tee, the adult is usually left with a shortish approach shot so scores are low which is fun for everyone.

If it is a more advanced group of both parents and kids and a bit more competitive, then I like the format that the local kid's tour uses for their parent/child events - 1st 6 holes are scramble, 2nd 6 holes are alternate shot and 3rd 6 holes are best ball. A bit more pressure, particularly for alternate shot - but it leaves things a bit more balanced because both the parent and kid have to come through at different times so scoring cannot be dominated by the ability of just the parent or the kid.
